Obviously, Borders as a concept didn't work out so well in Australia...But their books were always stupidly overpriced and the coffee was terrible, so it's hardly surprising. I won't even mention the cakes.
Imagine instead, a cafe, with big fluffy scones, melting moments and central heating, mixed with a second-hand bookshop. It just feels right.
|So much cosier than Borders, Starbucks, Gloria Jeans et al.|
|This was over Easter, and I think I ate a scone everyday. It was a revelation. Jam. Cream. Floury scone. Heaven.|
I rarely leave the house, except for work and groceries. Perhaps if there were more places like these in my immediate future it would be easier to emerge from the nest.
