By now, is no secret I have an addition to coffee. If you remember my Ode to Coffee post, I was telling you how I missed having a kind of an Italian-style bar, where you build a nice relationship with your baristas, have a chat whilst sipping a proper espresso. Apparently my prayers have been answered in the form of Carter Lane Coffee House. Conveniently close to work I now know where to get a shot of home whenever I need to. The coffee is the real espresso size, one shot straight that wakes me up when I need it the most – post lunch sleepiness, does it ring a bell? Although size matters, coffee is really good too. Suffice to say, the first time I got inside, I got a marocchino and almost cried with joy…Literally! The girls who run the coffee shop are really nice as well, very friendly and I enjoy having a giggle with them and just have a chitchat – which is surprising cause is not something I usually enjoy, so that tells you how excited and happy I get every time I step foot in there.
Have you ever been there? What is the coffee shop that makes you feel more at home?
