I decorated my kitchen at home last year to resemble a coffee shop. At home it is known as Susie's Cafe. Yes I make things to eat in or to go. Stop in for coffee! You have to pick your own mug. Some people have their favorites.
Yet today, I sit in a "real" down to earth homey local coffee shop with free WiFi, of course! (Did you know that Barnes & Noble just added that service for its customers?) Mr Coffee IV Bean Man (Jimmy) said that there isn't a website for his Crackhouse...umm I meant Coffeehouse! I told him to get on Facebook and start a business page. He didn't know that you could do that. I'm going to give him a few weeks and if he doesn't get it going I'm coming back here and do it for him. It is FREE I told Mr.Caffeine Man.... as in FREE advertisement.
I'm sipping a very hot and yummy Caramel Latte Macchiato for $5. A customer just walked in and the barista said "your usual" to the guy (who already looked jacked up on caffeine) holding 2 books and a notepad. Simple nod of the head seals the deal at Latta Java. During this time the phone rings and the barista says "ok I'll have it ready in 5". (Side note the chick came in and said "wow you really had it ready for me") Another lady (early 60s) just came in the shop and said can you make me what you made me before....so Mr. Red Eye Cortado, shot out a few names until he hit the right drink. I love small businesses.
