BOCA RATON, FL ( — readers continue to send us photos of dogs in the Starbucks at the Reserve Shopping center — that’s 441 and Clint Moore Road in Boca Raton.

While a sign says service dogs only, employees are apparently looking the other way — when they’re not actually petting the dogs before going back behind the counter to make your food — instead of enforcing the company’s policy.

Boca-area elitists who universally believe rules don’t apply to them, seem to routinely parade their dogs in this Starbucks location. It’s unclear why management permits it to happen. One reader suggested to us the health department has been notified.

Have photos of pets in places around Boca where they shouldn’t be? Send them to us at

Need coffee that doesn’t taste like, well, dog? Perhaps go somewhere else.
