I just moved to a new neighborhood, but already I have a favorite spot. Coffee shops always seem to be my social hub, no matter where I end up living, and Linnea’s Cafe has all I could ask for in a coffee shop: good drinks, yummy treats, and wireless internet. These three things alone mean that I could dwell there for an indefinite amount of time (read: all day, to escape my housemates) and be good to go. My favorite bit of Linnea’s is the back patio. It’s a little oasis in the middle of downtown. There’s a pond where some goldfish live, and a vine-covered arbor in case you need a cool place to sit. Which I could have used today, while I was sunburning down in Pismo. (75 and sunny on the Central Coast right now. Take that, suckas!) I’ve made several trips to the cafe already, since it’s a convenient four-odd blocks away. We are internet-less at the moment, so I go to use the free goodness…well, that’s only partly true. Thank you, nameless neighbors who didn’t password protect their wireless modem. Anyway, when the neighbor’s connection is unavailable, I saunter down the road. Jeez, i love living downtown.
