Creating a Cozy Cafe

Designers know how to make things look right. I decided that I needed one as we moved forward on creating the inside look of the new GoNOMAD Cafe. I found a woman with a good eye and an understanding of what we’re doing here in Jill MacFarlane. She has done stage sets and worked at coffeehouses, and even made those groovy signs you see all over Whole Foods. So she came in handy showing up as she did, when our flooring man Al Morini was laying out some color choices for the new vinyl floor.

We picked a dark green tile, to replace the carpeting which would have lasted a few days, and so, we move ahead. Since the place is beginning to look like a real cafe, we’ve had many people dropping by, asking about jobs, and my neighbors keep asking me when we will be open.

I hope that by early February, we can be serving the best coffee and espresso this town has ever seen. Jill’s orders are to create a cozy, comfy place where people will want to congregate and visit. I think she’s up to the job.
