Aroma coffee. Relaxing 1920’s music plays in the background, muting the sound of the traffic a little. The lighting is somewhat soft, ceiling fans create a gentle breeze, and the smell of bacon is in the air.
If anything, the place seems understaffed this morning: one loan staff member runs the whole place as I visit – not really enough for a place that seats so many people – probably 20 at a pinch!
Coffee is hot, strong and generally pleasant.
