We already have Starbucks, Caribou and a local coffee shop First Cup crowding up downtown. This weekend, on our walk around town Nat noticed that we are, apparently, getting another. We snapped this photo on Park Avenue - south of the tracks - right near Lou Malnati's.
Clover machine, though - and based on the lines there when I go with Nat, Starbucks isn't hurting. It must be a tough market to compete in.
Instead of a coffee shop, why don't any of these entrepreneurs try something else? I hear from my sister Vic good things about Two Toots. With all these strollers rolling around town, you'd figure they'd do gangbuster's business.
