My local coffee shop lends itself to some cool photos. The coffee is great, and much cheaper than Starbucks, the people are friendly, and it’s usually fairly quiet, even when it’s busy (except when high school kids are on vacation). I wasn’t a coffee guy until last year when I started frequenting Starbucks. Then I started to get an appreciation for small businesses and local restaurants. Now, I rarely go to a chain restaurant unless I’m a guest of someone else, and I haven’t set foot in a Starbucks in months. This local coffee shop is probably the best I’ve been to and if you can’t tell by the photos, it’s basically a reclaimed old house. It reminds me of New England and it is very cozy compared to your run-of-the-mill chain coffee joint. I typically go about once a week, and only the second week I was there the girl at the counter remembered my drink. It has a nice outdoor area where I can smoke my pipe or a cigar without being bothered and catch some shade while reading a book. The first two photos were taken this evening, and the others were taken on previous visits, one which I find it proper to repost as part of this series.
And my favorite of all:
