Lizzy: So speaking of places like Starbucks, Paul, what do you think really makes a good café or a good coffee shop?

Paul: Well, Lizzy, number one are the employees themselves. People who run a café who are generally amicable people, and also the setting of cafés. Also I like cafes that have music or shows. That is really cool to me. What do you think?

Lizzy: Actually, I agree with that quite a bit. I think the atmosphere is a very important part of it. And actually I have another question for you. When you go to a café, do you actually go there for the coffee or do you go there for something else and you happen to buy a coffee there?

Paul: Sometimes both. I am a bit of a coffee addict. So I definitely go for the caffeine boost.

Lizzy: Okay. I think for me so often it’s that I want to sit down somewhere and read a book but I want to get out of my house. I want to get out and go somewhere where there’s energy and people. And so I think the atmosphere plays a big role for me because I usually go there to do some work or read a book or study language or things like that.

Paul: That’s so true, I could never study in a library because it’s so quiet that I can fall asleep but if I were to go to a coffee shop, there’s the ability to kind of zone out because there’s so much going on around you, people meeting to chat, plenty of table space to where you can go and you know just kind of sprawl out with all of your different belongings and study or even get lost in a book.

Lizzy: Right. And I think when I’m reading I want a really comfortable cushy chair but I find that actually when I’m studying especially if I’m writing, I’d rather have maybe a wooden chair and a table that I can work with.

Paul: But studying is really not that much fun so if you’re in a café you always have the ability of possibly running into somebody who’s going to distract you. What about your favorite bars, what about the atmosphere for them?

Lizzy: My favorite bars, I really like pub style settings more than places that are strictly a bar. When I go to a bar usually I try not to go alone as much as go with friends. How about you?

Paul: I love bars that are true to like a theme. Like my favorite bar probably in my home town, it’s only beer and wine but it has a massive lawn. And it has like just kind of karaoke that they do on like Sunday nights and it’s all wood. And you can just sit outside at a picnic table and just drink beer and wine. It’s not like you have to be classy, not like you have to dress up. We’re just going to hang out and have a summer time like beer and maybe listen to music if they have a band playing on the lawn.

Lizzy: That sounds like a pretty nice place to me.

Paul: Yeah, it’s really nice.
