Stopping in for Coffee



In downtown Fayetteville, NC we were exploring the city and taking in some geocaching when we felt the need to stop and have a cup of joe to keep us going. 

We saw some tables outside this little hole in the wall coffee house, that were filled but we hoped to find more tables inside



After ordering coffee and a roll, at a long counter I spotted a small seating area which led to a narrow hallway past restrooms and to a back door.


Opening the door I discovered this fantastic patio area
completely empty?!

Notice the blue jewel
hanging in the upper right corner 


 Happily I settled myself and my eyes just feasted on this undiscovered dining area.
You can always find a touch of yellow to brighten any area, even as little color as this plant stand has, it just sings.

On every side it was so attractive


This blue chair had "Blue Monday" written all over it!



 Scented flowers filled these pots


 And even the holes in the walls were delightfully filled with interesting objects.
I love the blue tones in the bricks.


 I was called away before I could explore past this gateway to the alley


 But managed one more shot of gorgeous blue and white pottery

The open ceiling poured in light but also the rain 


I plan to revisit the next time I'm in town and linger here for longer than the few minutes I was allotted.
