The Original Logo Is Better!

Low key signage on the original Starbucks Store...

...neon and blackboard signs in the store, and...

...the plaque to signify that it is the original Starbucks.

I am not a huge Starbucks fan, so this was not really a pilgrimage for me. It did make me appreciate Starbucks more when I saw their original logo. It seemed a lot more local and fun than their current one, which has been neutered for corporate worldwide marketability. It was also a fun visit becuase the people who took the orders threw the cups across the counter to the baristas who were catching them one handed. The entertainment was a necessity though because we had to stand in line quite a while in the tiny store crammed in with a lot of people.
