    For anybody who cares about what it really says, here are the main points:

    This Starbucks cafe prepares each cup the way we take your order.

    They advise customers in advance that they don’t have any kind of supplies on hand if a customer has an allergic reaction from consuming their products.

    If customers have any concerns about allergens in their products, please ask your barista about it.

    Customers should choose what they order responsibly in light of this.

    For everyone who doesn’t read nihongo, or even if they do, aren’t going to bother reading all that text, thanks, Pete.

    Some signs do more harm to the company that good, don’t they?

  24. Garst | 2:30 pm |

    I guess they have a problem with people with food allergies plagiarizing their signs.

  25. Tom P | 3:25 pm |

    I’m allergic to Katakana.

  26. Long Tom | 4:16 pm |

    “it’s okay that we didn’t leave detailed instructions in English; you know those American people don’t like to read anyways”

  29. Eggrish | 9:56 pm |

    Google translate tells me, “Please die somewhere else”.

  30. Crank Caller | 5:11 pm |

    Translation: We serve peanuts prepared with peanut oil in machines that process peanuts. We wash the floors with peanut soap, spray the air with peanut scent, and make our napkins from peanut shells. Your dinner will only cost you peanuts. Would you like peanuts with that?

    Obviously the chap who made the sign post was allergic to Engrish
