The ridiculous price the local cafes charge for coffee.

The slightly higher price for food might be worth it.
The doubling the price of coffee sure is not !
Supporting locally owned businesses mean local money recirculates into the economy. Chains? No.

I think that they should just raise their prices a little, and give us REAL FOOD!

Haha reminds me of when I saw a lady take her sons to McDonald's, and ordered him apple slices instead of fries. The kid cried and she gave him some of her fries lol. I was like seriously who takes their kid to McDonald's to buy them apple slices when the kid doesn't even want that?

I'm all about healthy food, but I eat my apples at home

I agree, I actually like eating at smaller chains overall

I recently discovered a little sandwich shop nearby at my mom's house. Simple name "Sandwich Shop" but omg their sandwiches are so perfect and they make their own bread- SQUAW BREAD! *dies*

Does that mean I should just be content when the coffee adds $2.50 to my meal, yet that same coffee at McDonalds only costs me $.65 ?
