|The first review was officially made by Tom Llewellyn today via the Art List serv:
Had my first cappuccino at Amocat Cafť today, on my way to work. Delicious. Nice job on the foam and a great custom roast from Valhalla. A really nice space. And itís Morgan Alexanderís first day. This is an email to encourage all of you to check it out. And you might want to bring cash, as the card reader folks donít have him connected yet.

Nah, I think it's pretty funny the way they used the Dobbshead! It's not like he's their main logo. They should have asked permission but I'm sure we won't sue them until they have become a huge successful chain.
Thanks a lot for pointing that out though, it was news to me!

Hmmm. Perhaps Amocat is just stealing it back!
