It is a truth universally acknowledged that coffee on vacation tastes much better than coffee on a work day. Especially when you have someone special with whom to share it. Last week, my spouse and I went on a short trip to the beautiful Oregon coast. We stayed in a sleepy little town called Gearhart and enjoyed coffee one morning at Pacific Way Bakery and Cafe.
I enjoyed the quaint setting, the laid-back coastal culture, the delicious veggie tart, and the Victorian-ish decor. My coffee-drinking partner, however, pointed out that the entire coffee shop was made for people of a smaller scale than a 6' tall man. He could barely get his fingers through the coffee cup handles.
But, no matter how tiny the tables and chairs, there's something magical about vacation coffee and conversation.
Everything is Terrible.
