There's something very special about being able to relish a quality espresso or expertly brewed filter coffee in beautifully designed surroundings. What is the magic formula that makes a cafe space so inviting, so successful, with a buzz in the atmosphere that's so enjoyable?

Richly illustrated throughout with full-colour photos that capture the feel and personality of each coffee shop, and with detailed analysis of each design and its features, along with an insightful overview of the industry trends in design across the globe, this book successfully connects an appreciation for great coffee with spaces that invite human interaction and create memories through good design.

The Great North Road is part of British folklore, the Route 66 of Britain, except instead of gas stations and diners we have magnificent coaching inns, part of the living history of our islands. Taking in the history of these buildings (including a feature on highwaymen, who often concealed themselves in secret rooms and tunnels in these inns,) as well as the literature that has celebrated them - from Charles Dickens through to J B Priestley - Roger Protz describes these coaching houses with an expert and discerning eye, producing not only a great pub guide but a gazetteer of the history and culture that are draped along this iconic road.
Poole is one of the largest natural harbours in the world and the port itself has a long trading history dating back to Roman times. It is still a working port, particularly on the southern side, where many half-constructed Sunseeker yachts can be seen. This side also includes a ferry terminal and container port. On the northern side a fishermen's dock nestles incongruously adjacent to a yachting marina, which houses many luxurious vessels, most of which would have been built across the water. The Quay and Old Town contain numerous cobbled streets and alleyways with historic buildings, some dating back to the fifteenth century. Many of the town's pubs are situated in these areas and their chequered maritime history, including pirates and smugglers, is reflected in these pubs. In Poole Pubs author Andrew Jackson takes the reader on a fascinating journey through Poole's watering holes. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and he reveals the variety of Poole's pubs today including the characters that have frequented or run the public houses over the years. Brimming with quirky tales and intriguing facts, this carefully crafted guide initiates readers into the history of Poole's pubs.

Welcome to the George Inn near London Bridge; a cosy, wood-pannelled, galleried coaching house a few minutes' walk from the Thames. Grab yourself a pint, listen to the chatter of the locals and lean back, resting your head against the wall. And then consider this: who else has rested their head against that wall, over the last 600 years? Chaucer and his fellow pilgrims almost certainly drank in the George on their way out of London to Canterbury. It's fair to say that Shakespeare will have popped in from the nearby Globe for a pint, and we know that Dickens certainly did. Mail carriers changed their horses here, before heading to all four corners of Britain -- while sailors drank here before visiting all four corners of the world... The pub, as Pete Brown points out, is the 'primordial cell of British life' and in the George he has found the perfect case study. All life is here, from murderers, highwaymen and ladies of the night to gossiping pedlars and hard-working clerks. So sit back and watch as buildings rise and fall over the centuries, and 'the beer drinker's Bill Bryson' (TLS) takes us on an entertaining tour through six centuries of history, through the stories of everyone that ever drank in one pub.

Part culinary memoir and part travelogue, Carole Bumpus gathered this compilation of intimate interviews, conversations, stories, and traditional family recipes (cuisine pauvre) in the kitchens of French families as she traveled throughout the countryside. Travel with her through Champagne caves/wineries and historic cathedrals, local farmers' markets, ancient potters' guilds, and restaurant kitchens with wood-fire ovens. Learn how to make homemade Spinach-stuffed Tortellini with Bolognaise Sauce from the Champagne region, Crepes and Watercress-stuffed Ravioli from the Lorraine, and Baekeofe and Kugelhopf from the Alsace. "Go blind" from the family stock of Eau de Vie liqueur and be treated to tales of foraging for snails for the infamous and now extinct Escargots Festival. And, on a somber note, listen to accounts of families forced from their communities during the German occupation of WWII in the Alsace and Lorraine, only to continue to struggle for survival after finally making their way home. This book is a compilation of stories about making ends meet; about people being grateful for all they had, even when they had almost nothing; about the sharing of family jokes and laughter; and about family trials and triumphs. This book is about people savoring the life they have been given.
