I have two -
I have a Queen Anne Victorian house with a very large front porch, so I love to sit on my porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and a good book.
We also have a cabin in the Adirondacks and in the winter, I love to get up real early (like 4:00am!) and start the coffee pot and sit by the woodstove and read till my husband wakes up around 7:00 (3 hrs. of nothing but me, coffee, and reading, pure bliss!)
It has a great display of interesting things to buy. My last great purchase was three (!) new cookbooks. (I previously told myself *not* to buy any more books, but I couldn't resist.)
These were the books:
Innkeepers' Best Cookies
Wake up and smell the coffee
Chocolate for breakfast and tea
All three have proven excellent to my taste buds!!
ETA: Any time of day is great here, but it closes early so it's not available for after supper lounging. :(
My wife and I would be there every weekend and spend hours over breakfast, playing double-solitaire, reading our books and soaking up the atmosphere. We got on a first-name basis with Sara, and were truly saddened when her best-ever barista, Kate, said she was leaving.
We haven't found any place quite like it since.
Forms of Intercession
Blackwell's is not a multinational chain and does not have a multinational chain - type coffee shop within it, so this ternds to be my favourite.
Its great to just wander around Oxford's university buildings, pubs, and other old buildings, soak up the atmosphere, and then wander into a bookshop, purchase a book and sit drinking coffee (possibly with a dainty danish to complement).
