OK, let's say you were in the mood for a latte and a maple nut scone along with some pleasant surroundings and good conversation. But let's say that Starbucks is just too, well, high-falutin'. Too stylish. Too designed. Makes you feel like you can't possibly live up to their standards. How are you going to get your latte now?

Well now you can have dainty little pastries and hip coffee drinks in a setting that reminds you you're in lowest common denominator America, in the "McCafe" - a new concept from McDonalds.

Why, there's even a miniature grandfather clock on the wall to remind you of the middle-America homey feeling we enjoy so well.

No word yet on whether you can get fries with that latte. No word on whether there will be a drive-thru so you can enjoy that poppy-seed and orange-peel muffin while on the road.

Hmmm...I wonder how Chicago will handle this.

I used to frequent Chicago often during 1998 and 1999. And there are a TON of Starbucks in the city, particularly in the Loop and North Chicago. In fact, Starbucks was growing so exponentially there, that some people that were about to become neighbors with a new Starbucks rioted. Yes, they broke windows and made noise over a new latte choice.

Now then, the whole concept--a McCafe in Chicago: a city that already has Starbucks, Seattle's Best, Cosi, Dunkin Donuts, Au Bon Pain, and Panera. Not to mention, many local cafe joints. I'd say McD's is a tad late.

They did the same thing in Little Five Points, Atlanta -- I was there the day they were set to open, and the plate-glass was broken.

It's their revenge on us after drinking American beer.

yes.
it is.
you will suffer much, for McDOnalds are subtle, and piss in your coffee.

I've been to a Pizza Mac (another McDonalds enterprise) in Seoul, Korea. It sucked. Put it in South Philadelphia and by unanimous consent it would be declared blighted and moved to the top of the list for demolition.

Just solid proof that McDonalds will whore itself out into any sub-niche of dining culture just to make a buck.
