DDW Pic 713. Starbucks
There was a pretty big controversy when Disney decided to transform the Main Street Bakery into a Starbucks. However, now that it has opened, I have to admit they did a good job with the theming and I don't think that the modern coffee company takes away from the old-time Main Street feel. They have even created a backstory to explain how this coffee found its way into that location. Ishmael Pike was the proprietor of the Main Street Bakery. He traveled the world in 1897, where he tried different coffees. He found areas where the best ingredients were grown and eventually brought coffee to Main Street. This is how the bakery turned into more of a coffee shop. I took this picture of Ishmael Pike today, after enjoying a venti ice coffee.
