Speaker A: Sitting around drinking coffee has never been one of my favourite things to do, but I do love playing games, and so do some of my mates. So we’ve decided to meet at weekends and do that in a cafe. The place we go to has got a lot of fun things to choose from, and sometimes we bring our own. It’s a nice quiet and relaxed place, and never too busy, so we like it.
Speaker B: I work in an advertising agency and creativity is a focus. I meet with clients in our offices quite often, but more and more I’ve started asking them to meet me at a cafё down the street from our building. The atmosphere and decor are really arty, and the clients tend to feel a bit more relaxed when we meet there. I think both myself and my clients can come up with more interesting ideas for campaigns while we’re there.
Speaker С: Cafes have almost become like living rooms. It reminds me of that TV series Friends, where they drink coffee on a big sofa as if they re at home. In fact, a lot of cafes have put televisions up on the wall. It’s usually just in the background, so it doesn’t steal your attention. Its not to everyone’s taste, but I think its nice to look up occasionally and see a bit of current affairs or a sporting event.
Speaker D: For those of us who like to spend hours with a good book, a cafe is an excellent place to do it. That is, of course, if its not one with loud music, big-screen TVs and loads of noisy people. There are quite of few of those in my area, and they’re obviously not interested in keeping my business. That’s OK; I’ve got at least two or three to choose from that cater to bookworms like myself.
Speaker E: I think there are more cafes in my town than people! That’s what life is like in the Mediterranean. The weathers nice most of the year, and its great to sit outside, catch up on everyone’s news and, of course, do people-watching. The best places to do that are in sightseeing areas, with lots of people walking up and down the pavement, looking at the sights and enjoying the day. You see all walks of life in these places.
Speaker F: There are lots of different cafes in my town. A surprising number, in fact. To be honest, I don’t know how they all stay in business. A few of them have really bad interiors – bright fluorescent lighting, tacky furniture, even cracked plates. I hardly ever see anyone in them either. In my opinion, the look and feel of a cafe is the most important thing. Otherwise, it’s not going to be successful.
