cafe life and a celebration of over three hundred blogposts.



I was sitting having a coffee in Caffe Nero (Beeston-Notts) last week and was inspired by all the convivial banter and cafe noises to make a sound recording and began thoughts on how I could demonstrate my love of sitting with a coffee in nice surroundings and watching the world go by. Like many people I have sat in plenty of cafes and bistros, my faves being Caffe Nero, Cafe Rouge and a few in Bordeaux like the Utopia cinema cafe and an unpretentious cafe brasserie in the main shopping street, rue Ste Catherine. The Broadway cinema cafe in Nottingham is also a fave and I often pop in for a cheap mug of filter coffee.

I hope that you enjoy the short video and celebrate with me just passing my three hundredth blog post. All the images have been taken lovingly by myself and took two days to sort out and download and upload. A labour of love you might call it.

Ah Mr Low E! Fab video and nice to see some of those featured I've visited with you. Hope to visit many more with you in the near future!

I was enjoying your video but half way through I decided to shut my eyes and imagine I was in the cafe, especially as I have a latte at my desk. The smell and audio felt like I was there.

Congratulations on your 300th post!

You're doing well. I'm on 1741 now. Phew!
Sitting outside the Cafe de Paris in Monaco was great. Not only for people watching, but for car spotting too.
We must meet up for coffee sometime.

Loved the video.....but it's torture watching all those food photos late at night as now I'm hungry.

Lovely video! That steak and fries plate looked especially good!! You're luck to live in a place with such a variety of cafes. here it's either the Starbucks variety or the homey/neighborhood kind. No grand cafes here, alas.

300, wow!!!
