I’m a writer and like to linger in coffee shops with my laptop, taking in the aroma of espresso while trying to find my inspiration. When I found Café Plume, I thought I had found a gem – great food and ambiance. Unfortunately I was tactlessly told today that if I wanted to linger, I would need to do that over more than a coffee and croissant (my purchase last week). It was also suggested that if I wanted to go somewhere to “work” I ought to go to Starbucks. Today I made a point to buy more food to “validate” my stay but I felt watched, so I made a point to display my empty salad bowl and pastry bag. Hardly an atmosphere for inspiration so I think I will just take the suggestion I was given and go to Starbucks from now.
