BOISE -- Christmas came early for customers at a Starbucks in Boise.

A frequent customer of the coffee shop on Boise Avenue and Apple Street visited Thursday morning around 9 a.m. and handed one of the baristas a $100 bill.

According to the barista, the man told her, Coffee is on me.

The barista says for the next half-hour or so, about 30 customers enjoyed coffee and drinks, courtesy of the Secret Starbucks Santa known only as Pat.

The customers were surprised and grateful, although the identity of the Secret Starbucks Santa was never revealed. We're told he remained in the coffee shop and watched the response of customers.

The Secret Starbucks Santa also gave the baristas a $20 tip.
