I'm tired of Starbucks
Original post made by Jenna, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Jan 9, 2007
Why do we need 5 of them in Menlo Park? I always try to go to Martha's pastries for my coffee or plantation, which are small independent businesses that I like to support. When I do happen to go into Starbucks my order is constantly screwed up and the Coffee isn't that great, it’s not cheap and still, the line is out the door. I feel bad for these smaller local businesses that suffer because the big guy has opened next door. I hope once in a while you'll support me in popping in and supporting these small mom and pop owned places once in a while.
