Do you want to go for a coffee?

Recommended Posts

I don't mind people wanting to go for coffee. I just can't stand the pretentiousness of Starbucks etc

Depends which coffee shop it is; if it's Bragazzis on Abbeydale Rd, Oyes at Woodseats or Remo at Broonhill then yes, I'd go. Megabucks or Costly coffee ... forget it!

 

I love the proper, authentic Italian coffee shop on Church street, "Gusto Italiano". I and my bezzie meet there for coffee as it's so lovely.

 

Their coffee is fabulous, and the atmosphere and service are second to none, they serve delicious home made soups and other meals, Lasagnae, Pizzae, sandwiches...

 

I would go there anytime, over Cafe Zero, costapacket, or Starcrud$

We have something similar in Canada, it's called Tim Horton's, once you've tasted it you're hooked. :love: If we've had visitors over they love it too, maybe they add a secret ingredient to get us all hooked :suspect: only thing I know I can't start my day without one. :)

I can never make coffee at home as good as the ones in cafes, M&S is good enough for me or Costa (Starbucks is too creamy ergo fattening)

 

I read that one coffee a day is good for you, anyone else read that?
