Renovated Tradition

Classic coffeehouses are reinterpreted for the contemporary coffee crowd
Implications - From classic, cozy and independent coffeehouses to “fast food” cafes like Starbucks, coffee shops have evolved tremendously over the last century. Now, coffee-drinkers are turning to contemporary, one-of-a-kind cafes, with some even offering other services—like knitting and pets—along with coffee. These revitalized cafes appeal to the modern caffeine-lover with a specific interest or someone who wants, in addition to a simple cup of joe, an entire experience.
