Kensington Market Starbucks

Starbucks to Ruin Kensington Market?

The National Post is reporting that Starbucks is in talks to move into Kensington Market. The location? The shuttered J&J Fruit Market at the corner of Nassau and Augusta Ave.

If the deal is sealed Starbucks would be hawking what some consider overpriced lattes and burnt coffee just steps from I Deal Coffee and some of Toronto's other top cafes.

Here's hoping that Councillor Adam Vaughan does the right thing and makes things difficult to prevent this from happening. If all else fails though, let's home the community responds the same way they did when Second Cup tried to move in years ago. The location was met with lacklustre sales and closed not more than six months later.
