Love Starbucks coffee but hate the mob scene at the counter? The Seattle-based coffeehouse chain has you covered.

Within the next few weeks, Starbucks will introduce delivery service to Boston and five other US cities, the Seattle-based coffee chain announced Tuesday. Starbucks is expanding the delivery service first to San Francisco, beginning Tuesday, and also announced that it will launch food delivery service in Europe, starting in London.

Starbucks is using Uber’s food delivery arm, Uber Eats, to bring coffee and most other menu items within a half-hour of ordering, for a $2.49 booking fee.
