Well, where is Alpilla, anyway ?
Regarding Alppila, there is Linnanmäki and the train station of Pasila causing some pedestrian traffic in the vicinity, but there is not much offices in Alppila. The surroundings are quite highly populated, if you count Alppiharju, Harju and the rest of Kallio. The offices and factories are by Teollisuuskatu... Alppila, as a location for a Starbucks, is quite improbable if it does not mean "in Linnanmäki"
. Hakaniementori (Sokos...) or around Vaasankatu/Flemari (taking for instance the location of Luft
) would sound more realistic to me.
There is not any Roberts Coffee in Kallio even if we consider Kallio stretching from Hakaniemi to Pasila and Sörnaisen Kurvi. More precisely : there is no Roberts Coffee between Kaisaniemenkatu and the shopping center of Arabia. So, it's definitely not such a bad idea for Starbucks to choose Kallio for a test-opening... though it will definitely not look like a grand opening.
