Drive-thru Starbucks coming to Beachside Del Mar center

A drive-thru Starbucks is coming to Beachside Del Mar shopping center this spring.

The new location will offer Starbucks’ traditional neighborhood coffeehouse environment in addition to from-the-car service.

“We are pleased to welcome Starbucks to Beachside Del Mar,” said Russ Monroe, Donahue Schriber’s property manager for Beachside Del Mar. “As we continue to add new dining and shopping destinations, we are excited by the range of options we have for our residents and visitors.”

Starbucks will be one of the two tenants occupying the former Navy Federal Credit Union building across from the Auto Club of Southern California, near CVS Pharmacy. More tenants will be announced in the weeks to come.

The full-size Beachside Del Mar Starbucks store will help make mornings easier for neighbors, allowing more convenient access to their daily coffee from the seat of their car. It will also offer space for residents and visitors to get together, study or take a moment to relax.

Located west of Interstate 5 on Del Mar Heights Road near Mango Drive, Beachside Del Mar is undergoing a $4 million renovation that will create an attractive, inviting village atmosphere for local residents to shop, dine and work. Quality shopping, dining and gathering amenities are planned for Beachside Del Mar without increasing the center’s size or layout.

Jersey Mike’s Subs and The Broken Yolk have also been announced as new tenants.
