The first question when considering Starbucks hours of operation is when it opens. Most Starbucks locations open between 5 am and 7 am, allowing early morning commuters to get their coffee fix on the way to work.

Some locations maintain the same opening hours on the weekend, but others open a bit later. However, the hours of this coffee fast food chain are ultimately up to each specific store, so it's best to check with your local Starbucks to make sure you get it right before you head out.

Along with ascertaining Starbucks' opening hours, many people look to find Starbucks closing hours to know when the last chance is to get that latte or frappe they've been craving. The majority of Starbucks stores close between 6 pm and 8 pm, but this also depends on the individual store, so it's best to check in advance.

To find the closest Starbucks store, use the store locator tool. While you're at it, check online or by calling to figure out the store hours. To make the process of ordering simpler, get home delivery through Uber Eats. You can also use the mobile ordering service through the Starbucks app, and then pick up your items in the store, at the drive-thru or in one of its curbside spots.

One of the perks of Starbucks is that it often stays open on federal holidays like Thanksgiving Day and New Year's Day, unlike many big chains. However, it's best to check with your local Starbucks to make sure it's decided to stay open, along with double checking the hours before heading over for your caffeine pick-me-up.
