Cafe - a friendly informal
place to gather - Just the perfect place for your portraits! In
most European countries, such as Austria, Denmark, Germany, Norway,
the term café implies primarily serving coffee, typically
accompanied by a slice of cake/tart/pie, a "danish pastry",
a bun, or similar sweet pastry. Many (or most) cafés also
serve light meals such as sandwiches. European cafés often
have tables on the pavement as well as indoors. Some cafés
also serve alcoholic beverages, particularly in Southern European
In the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland a café (with
the acute accent) is similar to those in other European countries,
while a cafe (without acute accent) is more likely to be a greasy
spoon style eating place, serving mainly fried food, in particular
breakfast dishes.In the Netherlands and Belgium, a café is
the equivalent of a bar, and also sells alcoholic beverages. In the
Netherlands a koffiehuis serves coffee, while a coffee shop (using
the English term) sells soft drugs (cannabis and hashish) and is
generally not allowed to sell alcoholic beverages.
In France most cafés serve as lunch restaurants in the day,
and bars in the evening. They generally do not have pastries except
during mornings, where you often can get a croissant or pain au chocolat
with your breakfast coffee.
In North America
A café or coffee shop is a restaurant with full-service tables
and counters and broad menu offerings over extended periods of the
day. In hotels, the coffee shop is a more popular-priced alternative
to the formal dining room. Coffee shops often encourage families
and provide special menus for children. To establish a family-friendly
atmosphere, in many localities they do not serve wine or beer.
The most common English spelling, café, is the French, Portuguese
and Spanish spelling, and was adopted by English-speaking countries
in the late 19th century. As English generally makes little use of
diacritical marks, anglicisation includes a tendency to omit them
and to place the onus on the readers to remember how it's pronounced,
without being given the accents. Thus the spelling cafe has become
very common in English-language usage throughout the world, especially
for the less formal, i.e. "greasy spoon" variety (although
orthographic proscriptivists often disapprove of it). The Italian
spelling, caffè, is also sometimes used in English.
The English words coffee and café both descend from the continental
European translingual word root /kafe/, which appears in many European
languages with various naturalized spellings, including Italian (caffè);
Portuguese, Spanish, and French (café); German (Kaffee); Polish
(kawa); Ukrainian (????, 'kava'); and others. European awareness
of coffee (the plant, its seeds, the beverage made from the seeds,
and the shops that sell the beverage) came through Europeans' contact
with Turkey, and the Europeans borrowed both the beverage and the
word root from the Turks, who got them from the Arabs. The Arabic
name qahwa (????) was transformed into kaweh (strength, vigor) in
the Ottoman Empire, and it spread from there to Europe,
probably first through the Mediterranean languages (Italian, Spanish,
French, Catalan, etc.) and thence to German, English, and others,
though there is another well-based theory that it first spread to
Europe through Poland and Ukraine, through their contacts with the
