I dislike Starbucks. I dislike it because it pushes small, quality, family-owned coffee shops out of business by offering lower-quality, overpriced, character-less products that are rarely vegan that are convenient, that I really don’t want to buy. To me, Starbucks always feels like an assembly line. Some people would refer to this as a “slaughterhouse” feeling. Any way you put it, I dislike it. So I refuse to buy things there.
I’m a die-hard for Cherry Alley Café in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Because even if I don’t live there, and even if they don’t play my sorts of music all the time whenever I do manage to get there, that’s one homelike place. This homelike, no-pressure atmosphere makes me want to buy things there. Plus, they’re very vegan-friendly and they sell quality products for cheap. Oh, did I mention that you really can’t find vegan-friendly places in Lewisburg, or in most cities in Pennsylvania unless we’re talkin’ Philadelphia or Pittsburgh?
But I still like to sit in here and take advantage of Starbucks’ wireless internet while having my nose serenaded by apparently wonderful smells.
