Le Cafe’

“I walked into the warm ambience and was immediately assailed by the aroma of coffee and vanilla and spices. There was a quiet murmur of conversation much like a gathering of somnambulant bees. A cosy corner table smiled invitingly at me and I sank down into its warm embrace. With a smile to rival a Cheshire cat, an enthusiastic waitron delivered a latte with aplomb and departed in a funk as, despite an adjective strewn description, his offer of chocolate pie was declined.

 Tantalising crumbs of banter filtered through – reminiscent of finely brewed Jamaican Blend. Across the way two blue dowagers in animated conversation about “that gel in Apartment 2”. In the love seat a young couple engaged in an intimate tête-à-tête – much eye contact and hand holding, the recipients of indulgent glances from across the room. My neighbours were an old boys club – corpulent members, well polished and at ease with their self proclaimed magnificence.”

Slight character licence taken following a soothing thirty minutes in our local with an old friend yesterday. “Names have been changed to protect the innocent” – 🙂

“Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy.  [Coffee] is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so.  From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat.  ~Author Unknown
