One of the most challenging and interesting things about running a busy cafe is keeping pace— not just with the myriad of orders & individual preferences, but doing our best to keep our offering as accessible as possible, to the myriad of personalities & moods that enter through our door every few minutes.
Sometimes personalities and moods are complimentary, uplifting, or synergistic... sometimes abrasive, deflating, or challenging in some way... that goes for all of us, on any given day.
But at our cafe, we do our best to smile, be patient, and hope that everyone leaves here a bit happier than when they walked in. Ideally, that goes for everyone on both sides of the counter, and amongst the folks waiting in line, or sharing a table. And it’s magical to see it happen.
Today, our smiles were bigger, and our thoughts positively inspired, because of someone that walked through our door, and graciously offered to step behind our counter, to oblige a request for a photo.
The heart-felt inspiration and metaphors— behind people, gardens, and those who make an effort to attend to either, or both— abound!
