Not exactly the place for this, but this is chit-chat, trivia. I bet you don't know the answer to this. But what is a "Coffee Shop."

I was in a motel this am and a guy asked the clerk if there where any coffee shops in Glenwood Springs. The clerk gave him directions to a place, in the parking lot of the Rite-Aid DS...a little booth of a thing in a parking lot (not a coffee shop, a coffee stand) and then went on to tell him that it is a shame because places like Starbucks, a big-chain, are pushing all the small ones out of business.

I thought it was odd, because I was standing in the B-fast area of the motel, about 2' from the coffee dispenser, and the guy behind the counter had presumably (as the day-clerk) been the one to stock the coffee.

After he leaves, I tell him, "You know, I don't think that was what the guy was looking for." He says, "He asked for a coffee-shop" (which he did do).

He also says, that guy has been in here for about a month, he is working on the new bridge.

So, I get in my car and go to work, I also go and see what he sent him to (after the grocery store, about 50 yards from the place/stand and could see it from there, then I went to work, about 150 yards away)...twas a 10'x10' hut in a parking lot where you drive up to it and they help you out the window.

On the way, I pass through an intersection across the street from the construction...on the corner across from it is a Village Inn.

I've asked about 5 people, since then the question, where is a coffee-shop? They've all screwed it up.

So...what is a coffee-shop? You only get one word for the response.

I'll give you a hint...Harry Callahan (twas more often known by a nickname) was in a coffee-shop, and they put a TON of sugar in his coffee, and when he went back to check out why, the place was closed, shortly afterwards he says these immortal words..."I know what you are thinking, did he shoot 5 times or 6. You know, in all the excitement I've lost track. So, the question I have for you is....?   What?

What was Harry Callahan's question?

I guess when I hear coffee shop, I think of diner, that opens early and closes by noon. Just coffee, pie, donuts and maybe eggs, bacon, toast on menu.

D;

Yer thinkin' of CAFFEINE BISTRO, AKA Starbucks. Coffee
shops tend to be found in hotel and bigger motel
operations. They're usually pretty down home.
