I've had Subway sandwiches and Quiznos. I'll take an overstuffed deli sub over those any day.

Subway is starting to offer coffee...Move over Starbucks? (click)

Introducing the Subway Café

The Subway Cafe opening in Mission Hills on Tuesday is the second prototype for a new breed of Subway restaurants that feature a coffeehouse ambience complete with Wi-Fi, pastries and lattes.

I find this interesting because Starbucks has been tackling this sort of café from the opposite side. They started out with the coffee, tea and pastries and are trying to expand their food side of the business.
Has anyone been to the these new Subway Cafés?

That Subway smell exists in Subways all over the world, and it's exactly the same everywhere. I can smell it from half a block away and it is truly awful.

I'll say this, at least whatever they do to make that smell is consistent!

Japan's Subways don't have any awful or even vaguely unpleasant smell. Well, you couldn't do that kind of business here if your shops had (special exception for the truly humming Hope ramen).

They've also done coffee for the longest time - and it's good. Currently JPY190 a cup, the same as McD's large size (also fairly good coffee). Better than any of the coffee-specialist chains, and cheaper.

QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

The Subway in my neighborhood is now going to be open 24 hours a day. As an incentive to bring in customers, between Midnight and 6AM from May 1st and July 31st, you can buy any 6" sub and a drink and get a 6" sub of equal or lesser value for free....no coupon needed.

Maybe they're going after the late night Taco Bell/Jack-in-the-Box demographic.

And it's really not a good neighborhood in which to be open 24 hours, either.  :unsure:
