Saxby's Coffee?

josquared Sep 30, 2006 07:37 PM

I live in a small town where chains are the only players in town (Starbucks and Caffino, a tiny drive-thru chain.)

Is there anything that Saxby's Coffee (which is opening up soon) has to recommend it over these two, or is it more of the same?

    Saxby's is very similar to Starbucks. Although it is conveniently located to Georgetown Campus, I actually think the coffee is better at Starbucks and I am not a big fan of Starbucks Coffee. I miss Sugar's, it had more of a neighborhood feel rather then standard chain atmosphere.

        Probably not the same location, but I had the chance to try Saxby's in the Philadelphia airport. If I had to compare it with Starbuck's, I'd prefer Starbucks by a long shot. And like ABCD above, I'm not saying that as a Starbucks fan.
