A Latin name meaning “voyager, traveller”.
I used to go to Twenty & Six Expresso in North Melbourne quite a lot when they first opened. But these days they don’t seem to want to find a spot for one person when they can squeeze in two…
ME: “Can you squeeze me in ?”
THEM: “I don’t think so”
ME: “It’s because I’m by myself, right ?”
THEM: “In a way, that’s the reason. But in a more accurate way, it’s because you’re not wearing any pants”
ME: “I can see two seats right there ! You’re going to give them to the couple that came in after me, aren’t you ?”
THEM: “Again, I need to point out..”
ME: “Unbelievable! I see.. once you get popular you’ve got no time for the old regulars”
THEM: “Nevertheless I’m going to have to ask you to lea..”
ME: “OK, OK.. I’m going”
It won’t be long before they’re so successful that they’re turning away groups of 3 or 4 as well. We’ll see who’s laughing then.
Anyway, nowadays I wander down the road to Beatrix.
Solid coffee. Amazing ciabatta rolls. And even better sweets…
Beatrix. Cute name. Cute place. Solo travellers welcome.
Nice pictures and a meaningful review here.
