I do like coffee shops. When I’m older (ie saved money up and done all I want to do in my office working life) I really want to open my own coffee shop/tea shop. It’s going to be awesome.
But anyway, I do like tea shops and coffee shops and stuff because it gives me ideas for my own place.
A friend of mine invited me to a Japanese language exchange at a coffee shop called Coffee Fellows. I’d walked past it many times (and it’s memorable because it sometimes has live music, which is cool) but I’d never been in there.
The coffee shop is pretty large, 2/3 times I’ve been there it’s also been very busy. The time when it wasn’t very busy was 10am on a Saturday morning when it was heavily snowing. But I guess it shows it’s a good place, right?
Atmosphere-wise, it’s pretty noisy but friendly and welcoming. The staff are super friendly and nice, and there are big squishy sofas as well as tables and chairs to sit at.
In terms of drinks, they have quite a nice range of seasonal drinks which is always a winner with me. I had the Happy Holiday tea, which was awesome despite the American name. Above is the spiced something or other tea. They were all really nice.
The only problem with this, as we found out today as some friends and I met to do a NanoWrimo writing session is that there aren’t many electrical sockets available. And it’s a little noisy. They have free Wifi though so it’s cool.
I’m hoping to spend more time in free Wifi coffee shops and comparing them all. Perhaps I can encourage my friends to meet up and write together more often throughout November. I used to sit and study in coffee shops when I was in Japan and I kind of miss it.
Coffee Fellows is at Kaiserstraße 14 60311 Frankfurt.
