Cafetarium


Sometimes, I feel the unconscious need of saying to the waiter or the waitress that I love that place. But I can't, I'm so shy. And I always leave disappointed.
These feelings always reappear when I frequent "Cafetarium" of Tallers's street of Barcelona. It's a really nice place for writing, studying, reading the newspaper or meeting people while you're having a steaming cup of coffe. I recommend it! It's an interesting coffee shop with quite reasonable prices, pleasant owners, and a funny set: different kinds of weird mirrors, long curtains, undulating chairs and a warm orange lighting. The place is liven up with a relaxed electronic music too. But, the most important thing is the bar of dark chocolate that they always put in the coffee's plate. One more point for "Cafetarium"! I consider indispensable the contrast of sweet chocolate in comparison to bitter coffee!. Definitely, it's perfect.
We usually congratulate a cooker if a meal is nice but why don't we do the same thing with a nice café? I think there are coffee shops that hide a world inside it: how many stories could contain in it? and how many have been written?

Here you have their web if you're interested:

Good idea! It seems it works!

Excellent text! Your English is quite good!!! My comments refer to the meaning of some words rather than mistakes.

You are on the right track: A spontaneous piece of writing trying to find your own voice. Well done!

See my comments:
- I (0) always LEAVE disappointed.(I THINK YOU MEAN THAT, DON'T YOU?, AND I THINK I'D USE "AND", INSTEAD OF "HOWEVER". Or maybe I do not grasp the meaning... Tell me!)
-Definitely, it's so "charming". (I WOULD NOT USE "CHARMIN" IN THIS SENTENCE. LOOK FOR THE DEFINITION IN ENGLISH AND SEE IF IT SUITS YOU)
-We usually congratulate a cooker if a meal is NICE ("WELL COOKED", IT REFERS TO HOW "COOKED", "DONE THE FOOD IS, AND YOU DON'T MEAN THAT, DO YOU?)

I hope I make myself understood. Anyway I am in such pain right now that I could sound confusing...

I love Cafetarium! It has become "the place" to go :) And the waiters are very kind!

I've just remembered that we haven't met there for a long time! And yes, it's an "indirect" ;P!
