However, I now feel awkward about going back there as a customer. Even though the parting was amicable, and even though it was my favourite place for coffee in Townsville.
Yesterday, Sunday, we did what before was unthinkable. We went to another cafe.
We sat in a delightful courtyard at a beautiful weatherbeaten table.
We worked on our crossword ...
discovered the breakfast menu...
And found it was delicious.
I really hope I don't ask for a job at this new favourite cafe. It's much too nice to lose.
