Half the price of Joe's. I've never heard of the Key. In other words, the Tri-State area. The reasoning of course, is that British bankers are cheap, and they own a lot of shares in the Tri-State area. Naturally, when these cheap buggers hop across the pond to do banking, they only eat the cheapest crumpets.
