I was expecting a story about a Tokyo Starbucks that was managed by a beloved cat.

No reason - just thought somehow that that would be a story.

Is there now a Starbucks that has another Starbucks inside it?

That would be the end of the Universe.

Seems pretty reasonable tbh.  You see that sort of setup at airports sometimes as well.

I wouldn't do it for a few different reasons.

1:  I prefer to use multiple monitors.  Obviously, this doesn't apply when I'm traveling, but if I'm not traveling for work I'm not on my laptop working and if I am the odds are good I'm going to be waiting for a flight.

2.  I hate the smell of coffee.  Absolutely farking despise it.

That's actually pretty brilliant. You find a place that's actually zoned for business, and you sell coffee, simple breakfasts, lunches, etc. and you lease a couple square meters of cubicle space where you can meet people for business, leave and return when you want to. You have all the freedom of a mobile office, but a physical address where clients can meet you.

Why wouldn't that work? There's probably something I'm overlooking because it seems too simple.

There are companies that do more or less this. Places like Regus, and WeWork (Are they still in business?) They focus on more the office side while this offers more coffee and snacks.

By far the more noteworthy thing about this Starbucks is that there's a Kit Kat store right around the corner.  You can get some weird flavors there.

And it's just funny to see a swanky store that sells nothing but various types of Kit Kats.

No Lewis Black or Yakov Smirnoff references?  Bad subby.
