I'm proud to say, I've only been in a Starbucks once as they seem to be a horrible sterilized homogonised copy of Italian coffee shops, so I'm unfamilar with the policy. If they say you can sit and not buy, well that seems a poor business model to me. But again, I'm not familiar with how service works in these places.

But I've lived in Rome where the original coffee shops are, and they aren't gonna let you sit any occupy a table. In fact, you pay extra to have your coffee sitting down.:-)

More than 90% of people probably order something, and most of their stuff is likely vastly overpriced. From what I hear, a cup of coffee costs Starbucks around 30 cents, but they can sell for as much as $4 or more.

They get tons of costumers, so it far outweighs anyone that doesn't order anything.

The location I've mentioned has been around since before Katrina and only missed business for a year or so after Katrina. And it's still competing with two other local coffee shops in the neighbourhood. Those other coffee shops have similar policies and have been open for similar amounts of time (one of the shops has been turning a profit for 30 years).
