If you've been on the west side of town lately on 82nd street you've probably seen all the construction work going on in front of Target. We've been speculating what's being built and the rumors we've been hearing are true, it's going to be a new Starbucks. While it's great to see new businesses opening up and moving in, I was hoping for something else, I mean Starbucks is alright but I was holding out for something bigger and better.

I'm not sure if this new location on 82nd street will replace the one on Cache Road in front of Home Depot, or if both locations will be up and running. Plus there's already a Starbucks inside of Target, pretty sure that one will be closing, but who knows. Stranger things have happened, I mean Starbucks was once the fastest growing company around with stores opening up everywhere and it seems on every block. I bet there's a Starbucks inside a Starbucks somewhere. If not there will be one day.

I'm not a big fan of Starbucks, I'm a HUGE coffee drinker but I like regular old black coffee, Folders is my favorite. Well my everyday favorite, my absolute favorite is yellow can Cafe Du Monde with chicory. Now that's a great cup of coffee. If you've never tried it you're definitely missing out, especially if you're a fan of straight black, dark roast bold blends. It's amazing, even better with a beignet. The only thing better than that is actually being in New Orleans sitting at Cafe Du Monde when they bring it all out hot and fresh. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
