Hah! This is funny. The former occupant of this building was a different coffee shop that offered a drive-thru. But when the Starbucks was built, the residents protested (or asked nicely, or whatever) the drive-thru because of the traffic, and Starbucks conceded. However, patrons would still drive up to the window and wait and then complain about the "slow" service, until the staff put up a sign explaining that the drive-thru is not operational. Boy, I'd love to have seen the looks on some of their faces when they discovered they'd been waiting all that time for nothing.
Oh, and before I forget--check out the cool design and paint scheme!
