McDonald's Leaves Iceland

"REYKJAVIK (Reuters) - Thousands of Icelanders lined up at McDonald's restaurants to order their last Big Macs before the U.S. fast-food chain abandons the crisis-hit island at midnight Saturday due to soaring costs."

This report is from Reuters and appeared on their website. The site also has a video and a deeper story - in case you want to know more.

La Mesa, California McCafe Has A Minor Issue

McDonald's store #5252 in La Mesa, California had the McCafe retrofit, like most others in the USA. The McChronicles dropped in last week and noticed something slightly amiss - due to the McCafe.

We observed that, after our order was placed, the crew had to take an unusually long walk to get our food. We asked about it and were told that the counter was moved several feet forward during the retrofit, pushing the registers far from the food stations. The crew now has to really hustle to get back and forth.

Otherwise, the store is clean and the crew are quite warm and friendly. The store is in a great location (near a main road, within a shopping mall), easy to see and to get to/from, and offering ample parking.
