Even before the current health and economic pandemic I believed in supporting local business in my area.
I run a small business so I understand how important support is essential for their survival. If we don’t offer our patronage then we have a bunch of chain dining venues run by multi nationals.
My area is slowly opening up with outside dining that adheres to social distancing. So I cautiously ventured out to support the East-West Coffee and Wine Cafe which has a fantastic outdoor space with ample room and tables, couches, umbrellas to cover one from the elements and plenty of foliage.
It’s like an oasis that serves fresh brewed coffee/teas, an assortment of sandwiches/salads, libations and desserts.
A great casual neighborhood ambiance to slowly venture out while remaining safe!
I had their freshly brewed black ice tea and the house made baklava and lemon cake.
I met my girlfriend and we spent some time outdoors on their terrace just catching up.
Getting outside was good for my soul and I was glad to support a local business at the same time keeping my social distancing.
