When coffee cake made its way into a coffee cafe, it wasn’t just about making a delicious dessert for guests.
It was also a way to bring attention to a serious issue.
Now, thanks to social media, the concept of a coffee bar has become a meme, one that has gained traction over the past few years.
Many of us are used to seeing the bar on the wall, or a little table in front of us, but rarely do we see it with our own eyes.
We’re used to watching a movie, a TV show, a book, or even a video game where the player has a coffee.
But when that player is an old man who’s trying to pass the time in a cafe, or the elderly man in a wheelchair, you can’t help but notice something different.
“The coffee is part of our culture, it’s part of what we do, but it’s not the whole thing,” cafe owner Michael Lebowski told ABC News.
He said he and his cafe partner, Mike Kallstrom, wanted to take the concept beyond just a traditional coffee table.
“We wanted to show that there’s another way, that we can make a really cool coffee bar and bring awareness to that issue and do something really cool and interesting with it,” Mr Lebowski said.
This new cafe, called Coffee Table Retreat, has been open for more than a year and has a unique menu that includes a coffee bowl, coffee cake, and even a coffee cup.
Kallstrom is also a regular at the cafe, and he said he was thrilled to see the cafe open its doors to people who may not have had a chance to come before.
“This was a little bit of an outlier in terms of having a cafe with this kind of coffee and being a coffee lover, and not just a drinker, but someone who appreciates coffee and coffee culture,” Mr Kallquist said.
“And so, we thought that it would be really cool to have something that people would be able to experience that way, and so it has been a little unexpected.”
People were just kind of surprised at how it had been done.
“The cafe has been named one of the 10 most popular coffee bars in the world, and Lebowers has even been featured on the cover of the latest issue of Time magazine.
But not everyone is happy about the cafe’s presence.
Some people are concerned the cafe is actually stealing coffee, with many arguing that it’s selling the cafe for a coffee shop.
We’re just doing it for the money, and we don’t want to get into any legal trouble,” Mr LaBowski told ABC. “
We’re not doing anything.
We’re just doing it for the money, and we don’t want to get into any legal trouble,” Mr LaBowski told ABC.
A cafe owner in the United States recently called for a ban on the cafe because it was a “fake coffee bar”.
But Leboes said he’s happy that people have found a way around the issue.
“I think it’s just another way to show people that there are more than just coffee bars, there are other types of coffee bars,” he said.
For now, Coffee Tableretreat is only open to the public in Melbourne, with the cafe set to expand its range of drinks to include lattes and teas.
