Starbucks may be synonymous with the idea of getting a quick-fix buzz, but now the supernova coffee shop franchise is looking to help Angelenos relax... at the airport.

In addition to the regular ol' Americanos and Frappuccinos, you can now get liquored up through Starbucks Evenings' wine and Californian craft beer offerings at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX, according to Eater LA. The revamped shop, which launched last month, will also be serving up some small plate tapas. Looking from the sample menu on the Starbucks Evenings website, you might be seeing some savory items like truffle mac and cheese and bacon-wrapped dates with balsamic glaze.

Starbucks Evenings is part of a culinary facelift for the airport, including the addition of Umami Burger, Border Grill, and Michael Voltaggio's ink.sack sandwich shop.
