This Arklow cafe had the best response to a Starbucks opening nearby
An Arklow cafe came up with the perfect response to a Starbucks opening in the town.
The Blue Cafe, located off Upper Main Street, Arklow, Co Wicklow, is an independent cafe and restaurant loved by locals for its hearty breakfasts and creamy coffees.
Last year, a Starbucks popped up in the town, with a second Costa reportedly set to open soon.
In an effort to thank customers and combat the opening of the coffee chains, The Blue Cafe has displayed a sweet but sassy message.
"Thank you for supporting a small local cafe.
"Our coffee doesn't Costa lot and we don't write your name on your cup as we think you already know it."
The message, which was shared on Twitter, has gone down a treat online, with over 500 likes in less than 24 hours.
