If you need a caffeine hit on Easter Sunday to give you a boost during your egg hunt, you'll want to make sure that your local coffee spot is open for the holiday. Starbucks fans are in luck because, according to a statement sent to The Pioneer Woman by a Starbucks representative, its stores will be open on Easter Sunday.

This is good news for coffee lovers who also visited the chain last Easter, but there is one factor to keep in mind: Operating hours during the holiday will depend on your local store. You can, of course, use Starbucks' store locator, where some locations will display holiday opening hours, or you can contact your preferred branch ahead of time. That way, you can avoid pulling up to the drive-thru on March 31 only to leave latte-less.

While the chain hasn't announced any Easter-specific drinks, Starbucks is celebrating spring with new, colorful drinkware as well as a trio of lavender-themed drinks: the Lavender Crème Frappuccino, the lavender oatmilk latte (available either hot or iced), and the iced lavender cream oatmilk matcha. Based on these new arrivals, it's pretty clear that Starbucks wants lavender coffee to be the next trend.

Fans Are Divided Over Starbucks' Springtime Lavender Theme

If you're planning to sample one of Starbucks' new lavender drinks, be wary — they seem to have a "love it or hate it" kind of vibe. The heady, floral lavender flavor is a bit too much for some folks on the Starbucks subreddit, where one user said it "tastes the way essential oil smells." On the other hand, another user was so "obsessed" that they posted their own Reddit thread asking if anyone knew which brand of lavender powder Starbucks uses.

The appearance of the iced lavender cream oatmilk matcha is also a source of disappointment for some, with customers' images of the drink differing greatly from those circulated by the coffee chain. The creator of the first post mentioned shared an image of their drink, demonstrating that the foamy lavender layer was completely missing. Based on the comments, this foam is quite difficult for baristas to achieve due to the amount of shaking the drink requires, but a more cynical response simply read, "Y'all keep falling for Photoshop."
