We need cafes. Is this a strange statement? After all, it seems daft to go somewhere to pay sometimes outrageous prices for wet-but-hot flavoured water.
Yet, there is something communal about a cafe. One gets the chance to be with one's species in a friendly way - and relax. Giving oneself time to relax, even at home, is hard.
It's just a matter of finding cafes with reasonable prices and pleasant ambience - like the market cafe in Burton.
