Coffee with a friend

‘A cup of coffee can be the beginning of a life-long friendship’, reads this aphorism painted on the wall of a roadside café diner somewhere along the European route E4 in Sweden. We happened to stop there when driving from Stockholm to Helsingborg on our way to visit friends in Luxembourg several years ago. I believe the red wall is still there brightening the break of all kinds of random travellers. There’s no need to redecorate when you have this conspicuous a guarantee to make your customers’ day.

I hope you will be able to have a cup of coffee or a nice cup of tea with a dear friend today. And if you ask me it certainly never hurts to have something sweet on the side. A small muffin, just a tiny piece of cake, some ice cream or a little bit of chocolate perhaps.

Happy Valentine to you dear reader, random or otherwise!

  3. As I am having my morning coffee (alone) I enjoy your pictures and maybe, yes, something sweet would be nice for me as well!

    1. We can't resist something sweet with our afternoon coffee. It is a blessing to stay slim without much effort.
