I hear English being spoken at several of the other tables here. It's a nice place. The tables that have been set for dinner have peach colored cloth tablecloths with tan paper mats and purple paper napkins. The chairs are cane wicker with maroon seats and backs. The ashtrays are clear glass. The tables are a nice, light wood. The waitiers have bow ties and black vests.
I'm not sure if my cup of espresso was half-full or half-empty, but they definitely could have fit some more in there. I did get 2 sugar cubes, though, and a chocolate-covered almond, which was a pleasant surprise. It's a relatively big place, taking up the whole edge of a block adjacent to a large intersection. It's not really possible to see the St. Augustin church from where I'm sitting, but maybe the people on the other side of the café have a view of it. The weather's warm and the sun wants to shine in my eyes, but if I move my head a little to the left, the sun is blocked by the black metal corner between the windows.
Every few minutes pairs of people skate past the café on rollerblades.
