In the cafe, bar or restaurant

In the fall, we often want to wrap yourself in a warm blanket and a cup of hot coffee. In autumn we often feel like cuddling under a warm lap robe and having another cup of hot aromatic coffee. But do not always want to pass the time alone, you can go to a cozy café, and there with friends watching the rain pounding on the gray pavement and the wind chasing the red leaves. It’s not always that we wish to spend our time alone, but we might go to a cozy cafe, and there, together with our friends, watch the raindrops falling at the grey sidewalk, and the wind ping-ponging the red leaves. If you’re lucky, the velvet season will give us a couple of sunny days, and then we can go with friends for a picnic or to find a street in a wicker chair outdoor cafe, still waiting for visitors. If we are lucky, the Indian summer will grant us a couple of sunny days, so that we can go picnicking with friends or make ourselves comfortable in a cane-chair of the alfresco cafe, which still welcomes visitors.


We are often attracted to a cafe with a stylish interior, comfortable seats with soft, subdued light (plush interior, comfy upholstered seating, soft lighting). Such a visit which would escape from the hustle and bustle (escape to a soothing land).
