The Little Connecticut Village Cafe In full Christmas window decor. Snow. Brownstone in the background. (The Brownstone quarry is forever closed). Very ‘quaint’.
Now would I rather be in any of these other locations? Well yes. I can ‘testify’ to the awesomeness of each. I would much rather be ‘Home’ in Ukraine than here in the decaying sticks of american collapse. But we can find charm anywhere if we look for it.
FAVORITE COFFEE SHOPS
Kiev’s London Coffee? (Kiev Ukraine)
L’viv’s Veronika Cafe? (L’viv Ukraine)
Both of which are Nth-degree better?
Victor’s Celtic Coffee (Redmond WA, USA)
John Watt and Sons (Carlisle, Cumbria, UK)
(especially for scones with jam and cream)
La Coquetterie (Angers, France)
I actually can’t find anything good in London because every single place is busy and dirty and loud. And I haven’t spent any time in NYC lately, and the places I know in SOHO are all gone (as is the soho I remember).
And I can’t remember the one in St Petersburg. And Moscow shops – while the most desirable – are simply too expensive to recommend in general.
