Thoughts From The Coffee Table: Fall is my favorite season. The brisk air makes me feel alive and renewed, and calls me to tea.
Last week in NYC I was feeling the first “bite” of fall air. I bought a cashmere scarf from a street vendor for $10. (Do you think it’s really cashmere?) Then I found Argo Tea on Broadway.
This was my first time in Argo, and I felt the connection immediately. The staff was smiling, almost all the seats were filled with happy people on laptops or reading. And thankfully there was also a nice clean restroom! That is always important when in NYC…
I very rarely order sweetened tea, preferring the clean scents and flavors, but the Carolina Honey seemed lovely and I was happy for the choice. Yum!
I often wonder how so many cafes survive when there are so many choices, but product, service and experience makes the difference for me.
Although I had been intending to grab my cup and head out again, I decided to sit awhile at watch the crowd. I was curious.
There is a vibe in every café. Some are filled with those seeking free Wi-Fi and a place not to feel isolated. Some you expect a beatnik poetry reading in the corner. Others feel empty and cold.
This one felt like home.
