The cup of coffee that tells all


We all love Toronto, pictured above, because it's big and exciting. But then there are these slight inconveniences.

Such as ... You are in your car and you would like a cup of coffee.

Lots o'luck!

There is construction everywhere -- huge, devastating, catastrophic, constant construction, with big piles of dirt and barrels all over the place and streets blocked off. The traffic is relentless and there is no pulling over, let alone parking. Parades of pedestrians are everywhere. Trolleys are clanging past. Stop for coffee? Are you dreaming?

Sure, Buffalo wishes that we walked more, that we had more construction, that we we had more people. But still. But still.

Admit it ...

... after a couple of days in the big city, Buffalo feels good.

Back over the Peace Bridge, back in town, the driving was easy. The living was easy. We swung by Elmwood Avenue. We easily made a U turn to pull up beside Taza Cafe. There were dozens of open parking spaces. Inside, a smiling hippie was waiting behind the cash register. A sign said: "Cash Only." The coffee was good and cheap.

We picked up coffee and a couple of cool sandwiches with black beans and went back out to the car.

You can't beat our town.

Buffalo ... Wake up and smell the coffee!
