A little corner of the cafe, surrounded by beautiful art by local artists, where I could still see a sliver of the hustle & bustle of the busier room. There was a birthday party, book club, religious group discussing passages from the bible and several groups of friends cheersing beers & celebrating on a Wednesday evening. What a lovely atmosphere.
First came the cinnamon coffee, and a few chapters of the book I'm reading kept me occupied while I waited for my food to arrive. It's funny that the thought of waltzing in to a restaurant to eat dinner alone is something I would never consider doing, but in a coffee shop it doesn't phase me at all.
Shortly after my food arrived, the troops began to trickle in. It seemed everyone was running early that day, which allowed for more time to hang out. No complaints from me.
The chairs were quickly filled, lots of hugging and loud "hiii!!" greetings could probably be heard throughout the entire cafe. It was great. Also, I happen to love friends that are easily persuaded into sharing treats.
