nice contrast in signs and time of day......
I wonder if Caffe Nero is going through tough times like Starbucks - I hear they are closing quite a few of their stores....
18 Mar 2009 10:54am
(from Ronnie) Thanks, Chris. No escape from the tough times for anyone but much of Starbucks' problems were over-expansion . . they competed with themselves !
Excellent presentation. I think I would be most likely to visit the one on the right. I'm definitely not a fan of Starbucks, but I've also never heard of Caffe Nero.
18 Mar 2009 12:39pm
If Nero's coffee costs less than a half monthly salary, I'll take one. :-)
18 Mar 2009 12:43pm
Une belle opposition !
18 Mar 2009 1:00pm
I thought at first they were competing signs on the same pole! Then I realized it was you two at your tricks again ;0) Great shots you two!
18 Mar 2009 1:01pm
night and day
18 Mar 2009 1:04pm
(from Ronnie) Thanks, Veronelle, I shall be singing that all day, now . . and "Fly Me to The Moon" . . hee hee
And tall means small! Learned that in Starbucks, too! Great post.
cool shots but i think now i'm gonna have a green tea after lunch...

If I had given that answer to my wife, I would have had a sore ear for days! Beautifully processed image as usual.
18 Mar 2009 1:22pm
Starbucks over priced, pretentious, and they just don't know how to make a proper cappuccino. For those that are familiar with The Sopranos there was an episode where Paulie declares that they are "raping our culture."
18 Mar 2009 1:40pm
Great contrasts! Italian coffee...mmmmm.
Another great image you two..the contrasts are so great!
18 Mar 2009 1:57pm
LOL...so which coffee is better?
18 Mar 2009 2:00pm
Time for a taste test! Of course I always seem to go with the Italian flavor. How interesting a poster this would make on one of the cafe walls.
Great composition and like Tracey commented, as if they are on the same pole.
You two never cease to entertain our visual thoughts.
18 Mar 2009 2:38pm
a wonderful presentation once again !
18 Mar 2009 3:18pm
I'd like to give Cafe Nero a try. I prefer Tully's over Starbucks any day.
18 Mar 2009 4:10pm
*lol* Costa coffee is my local, and mine's an expresso :)
18 Mar 2009 4:14pm
ying and yang, the night and the light, you choose where to rest as you like

Head to head, the rivals meet. Me, I'm a Starbucks kinda guy. Gotta love those Caramel Machi-wotnots...
18 Mar 2009 6:27pm
Fabulous shot and Lily just between you and me I don't think that he is listening
18 Mar 2009 7:34pm
@jamesy: ( from Lilly)
Oh, I know.
I am very aware of when he is listening. It's usually when he's talking.
I still don't understand your " " but I like what "I" can unterstand :-)

Caffè nero, black coffee. At least it sounds good.
18 Mar 2009 9:21pm
There seems to be fans here on both sides, but as far as I am concerned they both serve much of a muchness. I'll stick to a proper mug of tea any day.
18 Mar 2009 10:58pm
great shot, i would go for the italian coffee every time
18 Mar 2009 11:25pm
No fiddling going on in the cafe on the right, is there?
18 Mar 2009 11:29pm
Wonderful pair of shots, being someone who cannot stand hot drinks would skip both of them
And your so right some of the names that used to be put on high in the financial world are viewed with contempt these days
19 Mar 2009 1:21am
19 Mar 2009 1:24am
If you want to taste the true flavor of coffee, you are certainly right to drink a good cup of Caffè nero !
Nice composition !
19 Mar 2009 4:15am
I want to go to Cafe Nero--looks so deeply blue and rich
19 Mar 2009 8:10am
caffe nero looks a lot more menacing and intriguing - i think that'd have to be my choice!
19 Mar 2009 8:37am
How nice to have a choice of coffee shops side by side!
19 Mar 2009 9:54am
The conversation sounds familiar... :-) My wife loves Starbucks and I'll occasionally sneak in to steal a sniff of the coffee laden air but would rather pay 60 cents for coffee from a machine and watch as it is supposed to dispense a cup and pours coffee down the drain than give someone five dollars for a cup of fancy-named coffee... Strangely I've never been able to tell the difference between pie a la mode and pie with ice cream...
19 Mar 2009 11:51am
There are a few Starbucks coffee here but I don't know Nero. Nice opposition day- night showing the time difference between you two.
19 Mar 2009 11:53am
A million miles away! Well done!
19 Mar 2009 11:54am
We've got 3 neros and 2 starbucks within a 5 minute walk; there's something not quite right about that!
19 Mar 2009 12:45pm
obviously I choose the right side
19 Mar 2009 3:07pm
There is no question, I choose italian coffee!
19 Mar 2009 5:20pm
Well done, again! Just as we are used to. Yes.
19 Mar 2009 7:34pm
Hmmm... Which do you suppose has the better coffee? I like your change of pace with this image.
20 Mar 2009 5:38am
great dyptich! I love the colors of cafe nero! and the description is hilarious as usual! hahaha!
20 Mar 2009 1:33pm
I want some Nero!
28 Mar 2009 2:14pm
Beautiful comparison... I prefer an Italian coffee...
