I'm going to guess that the reason the Starbucks is on Main Street is because -

1. People want their coffee in the morning, on their way in to the park. Why put it at the back of the park to inconvenience the guests?
2. Main Street is supposedly a shopping district, this is where the coffee shop or bakery or whatever you want to call it belongs.
3. Probably a somewhat lesser consideration was, locating it on Main Street will draw the people who want a Starbucks drink in the afternoon/evening back to Main Street, where they may feel compelled to shop more. I'm sure it was a consideration, but like I said, lesser so than the first 2 reasons.

Most people who don't follow every move WDW makes, and/or didn't regularly go to the bakery, won't even know the difference. The façade is the same... small town American Main Street.
