Will the acquisition of Bay Bread/La Boulange mean better baked goods for Starbucks, or the kiss of death for La Boulange?

"Time will tell, but I'm not encouraged," says Rapini, who likes La Boulange for coffee and a light breakfast. Robert Lauriston wonders if the acquisition means that local Trader Joe's will no longer carry Bay Bread's pain pascal, while maoliu worries about the fate of Rigolo Café, which srr says has a peripheral involvement with Bay Bread.
