Donuts Getting Dunked in the 'Burg?

So Williamsburg finally got its Starbucks, but is there a coffee chain turf war brewing in the 11211? Here's a report from the Eastern edges of the neighborhood:

the chi-chi part of williamsburg may be getting starbucks, but over where i live off the graham stop, we're getting dunkin' donuts. i saw a sign in a window of a storefront on graham ave., right above metropolitan and about five feet from the subway entrance ...Apparently the feud is already heating up, with this tipster obviously buying into the whole Dunkin'-Donuts-as-the-common-man's-Starbucks ethos. After all, have you ever heard of the intersection of Marcy and Broadway referred to as "chi-chi" before? Well played.
