Have you ever stepped into a space which you felt is like an immediate respite? That you’ve just left the hustle and bustle outside the door? Kate Coffee (recommended by the lovely Hello Sandwich) was that for me.
The few people inside were engaged in conversations of quiet whispers but which seemed no less engaging. A soft music played in the background, broken occasionally by the sound of the coffee machine. And so I sat, sipped, listened, watched.
I sat facing this window and noticed many kids walking down from that gentle slope ahead in all their joyful childish demeanor. So I guessed there must be a school or some sort up there. I ended up keeping count of the number of kids emerging from there.
