Coffee Makes You Poop

Not my title...but I love it! Check out D-Tales gossip blog

What I love is, this is a Biggby newbie...and this is what was noticed right away...

"It's like Starbucks only without the self-seriousness. Plus, WAY better coffee..."
What we're doin' is still workin', ya'know?

The Biggby Coffee inside Midtown's Studio One Apartments just opened last week! It's like Starbucks only without the self-seriousness. Plus, WAY better coffee and about a dozen more syrups and sauces. And they don't have their own record label. AND they have real food that you'd actually want to eat as opposed to weeks-old poundcake that was vacuum-sealed steeping in its own lard. The look is bright and happy, and the people are friendly and upbeat (as opposed to the angry artist types who typically staff a Starbucks). I got my nonfat Marshmallow Creme latte and chatted with the baristas. When one told me that she hopes to see me back, I totally believed her and it was in a completely non-lesbianic way. Make sure you pick up your Biggby Card--when you buy 10 drinks you get the 11th free. Cashier: "Do you have a...oh." (As I handed him my Biggby Card...That Other Guy lives right by one so I typically go there after sleep-overs. I had my rechargable card before they even officially launched it. So nyah.)


BTW Go Detroit!

Plus I love that she notes being influenced by a handful of things during her visit--the selection, the colors, the frequency card--how all these things contributed to the overall experience, but the interaction with the baristas was clearly the centerpiece. Awesome.
