Walking through little Italy in Boston, Mass was like walking through an old European town.
After eating some good italian food I then try to find a place to have coffee in Little Italy in Boston, Mass.
When I look for coffee… its like finding my meaning of life. Love.
Is there coffee in Little Italy…Of course there is love. But I guess the question is, is there a coffee shop filled with love in little italy? And yes there was…besides all the restaurants that serve coffee. There was a spot called:
Boston Common Coffee Company
97 Salem St, Boston, MA 02113
In Little Italy
There is an Italian proverb that says: A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.
So true, the Cafesita version would be. A morning without coffee is like a day without sunshine.
Can I take your order?
Here are a couple other Italian proverbs:
By learning to obey, you will know how to command.
Criticizing another’s garden doesn’t keep the weeds out of your own.
