This article was in the New York Times in January. It was about the decline of $tarbucks (finally), and specifically highlighted an independent coffeehouse that $tarbucks couldn’t kill. Namely, the Broadway Cafe, which is one of my favorite haunts. With the possible exception of Vivace in Seattle, Broadway has the best coffee of any coffeehouse I’ve been to (and I’ve got quite a list). Several years ago, a $tarbucks moved in next door, but Broadway never lost any business. And just recently, that particular $tarbucks announced that it is closing.

It was nice to see the New York Times do a piece on something here in KC, especially involving one of my favorite places. I’ve been a regular at Broadway Cafe since 1996, and I’m glad to see it getting recognition.
