BRICK – Brick is getting a little more Seattle.

The coffee giant named for the first mate from Moby Dick got its site approval from the township planning board Wednesday night.

Starbucks will be constructing a one-story, free-standing location on Brick Boulevard where the gas station by Bay Harbor Plaza used to stand.

Customers will be able to order their Triple Venti Half Sweet Nonfat Caramel Macchiato at the drive-thru window, or one person can bring a laptop and occupy a four-seater table in the corner for hours inside.

The application was unanimously approved by the board.
