Our dream to provide a local and social coffee shop to our great neighborhood has been affected by computer work and our café now feels like a co-working office and no longer a space for social interaction. When tables are occupied for 4 to 5 hours by remote workers we have no space left for guests looking for a spot for conversation, a quick bite or a drink. Not only do we loose out on our desire to serve, but also our dream to make a reasonable living and provide quality employment to our fantastic team.
Free WiFi is not an entitlement but a generous gesture from café owners everywhere. We ask, for our guests to be more conscious with those around them—including the friendly staff who work behind the counter. We’ve installed a system that reminds guests how long they’ve been online. They can decide if they would like to stay online and continue supporting a local, independantly-owned business.
Cheers and keep on chatting!
