Starbucks: The Anti-Fast Food?

According to MSN Business, Starbucks likes to think of itself as the anti-fast food.
Starbucks (SBUX, news, msgs) built its business as the anti-fast-food joint. Now, the recession and growing competition are forcing the coffeehouse giant to see the virtues of behaving more like its streamlined competitors.

I've always thought differently and remember my nephew on the West Coast telling me that all the fast food places had been moved out of downtown Seattle.

But I've never been sure what makes Starbucks different from McDonalds or Taco Bell other than they're selling more upscale kinds of products.
