Another lure of the local coffee shop is that it is a place to escape from the outside world and relax with a cup of coffee while browsing the Internet, reading a good book or even penning the next great masterpiece. While the coffee shop can be a social scene, it can also be a place of solitude for those who want it to be. Many coffee shops offer Internet access, comfy seating and a quiet area for simply enjoying one' self. The coffee shop is a part of the coffee world that will never completely go away. Even when economic times are hard people will go to the local coffee shop out of familiarly and a place where they feel known and welcome. They might opt for a regular coffee instead of their typical cappuccino but they will still want to be in the coffee shop.
