Why coffee shops?

"We tend to go to cafes for other reasons than drinking coffee..we can do that at home-it's sometimes better and always cheaper. But what we can't do at home is be among strangers. Cafes are unique social spaces where people go specifically to be with others and yet be separate."

Kapka Kassabova, "In the Company of Strangers,"
quoted in Steve Taylor's "The Out of Bounds Church," p 116
