Coffee shops are places to buy and drink coffee, pretty obvious really. Many people think that all coffee shops are like the one shown on 'Friends', the American comedy series, where the actors are paid more then the debts of some third world countries.

Coffee shops are not like that at all, you will order a coffee and in return you will get a hot frothy concoction based loosely around a coffee tasting drink. Lots of these drinks are made using a machine which hisses and froths, spitting boiling water into a smallish cup, the noise of this machine often masks any attempts at conversation in the whole room.

Modern day coffee shops have turned themselves into Cyber Cafes, with computer terminals linked to the Internet to enable people to surf the net while drinking their coffee. Rules are posted everywhere about what you can and cannot access while there, as they are paranoid that you may look at dirty pictures on the Internet. These are often frequented by a regular clientele, who put off many who would have come in, as they try, in their eagerness to help a 'newby', by showing them the web sites they should really be looking at.

Cyber Cafes have a chequered future, as more and more people have computers at home connected to the Internet, at a much cheaper rate than the cafes charge, also you have the freedom to look at the sites you wish to look at, whilst drinking your own choice of beverage.

While people still go out shopping, then coffee shops will continue, as we all like a hot drink and a chat when bumping into people we know while out and about, so long may they flourish, and some may even, in time, become like the coffee shops we see on TV, we may bump into friends there, you never know.
