A frequenter of suburban coffee chains. First started going to Panera on a regular basis while writing my dissertation on higher ed. Now I go when I have a babysitter for my toddler. I like the table by the entrance. Some may say it's cold but it's a good nook. Speaking of which...I prefer the nook to the kindle, Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke but both are usually caffeine free to balance out my Starbucks drinking problem, chocolate to vanilla, and Frango mints over anything else...except for a Peppermint Mocha on a snowy afternoon. Thanks for reading this far.
