Starbucks is beginning to roll out brunch dining options, and the first person to order a Pumpkin Spice Latte at their Starbucks brunch gets a prize for Basic-est B*tch! Ok, that prize part isn't true, but Starbucks is trying out a weekend-only menu that includes waffles with blueberries and syrup, fancy quiche, and baked French toast. Doesn't it look good?

Even though I live in a big city now, I have lots of sympathy for people for whom Starbucks is the "fancy" coffee shop in town—I grew up around farmland and it was a huge deal when a Starbucks opened up in the neighboring town. But even then, I don't think I would have gone to a Starbucks to have a full sit-down meal of food that probably wasn't very good. Grab a sandwich from Starbucks? Definitely. Meet my friends there for brunch? Definitely not.
