  1. It’s true. It’s a rare Starbucks that doesn’t feel somehow cozy – it’s the smell, I think, along with a big dose of no expectations. I’ve started to take my laptop out with me so when I have breaks in the action, I can go sit somewhere. I like it.

  2. I enjoy going into small towns on trips and stopping by to see the “locals” or in college towns, “townies” in coffee shops. There usually are the regulars who may be retired and they will share stories and when you want to know where to go or what to see, they are the experts, Beth!
    I like how you can wander off topic when you see a post about coffee shops. Everyone puts their 2 cents in πŸ™‚

  3. sigh – afraid I can’t help feeling melancholic viewing single folk (including myself) sat in a coffee bar or other (each wrapped in our own thoughts/memories), being part of a ‘crowd’, but not really – killing some time in the company of familiar strangers 😦

  4. Ack! I want to set up the folks from the first two photos. Let’s introduce them. Perhaps a romance will bloom! πŸ™‚
    I was watching an older couple in a restaurant today and snagging them for a future story. I guess we’re both in that habit!
    Thanks,

  5. Oh wow this is so good! So true too! Last time in the coffee shop I had a room all to myself and I worked all day there! I thought maybe I should leave but the peaceful quiet and the smell of coffee kept me there! πŸ˜€ This is wonderful!
