    Quite honestly, my hometown isn't

    that stocked with LGBT+ friendly environments. As a gay teen, this is a bit off-setting. I've always wanted to own a cafe/coffee-shop, so I'd call LGB(Tea). ??

    I would do all my own baking

    and I would have a section for those who are diabetic. i would have coffee and smoothies. I would make homemade soups and sandwiches. I would let the regulars name them. However with the economic situation here, it's hard to create and keep small businesses going. I also...

    This experience reminds me of a dream I used to

    have when I was a bit younger. I wanted a cafe/bookshop/reading room type establishment, piles of all sorts of books, maybe an open fire in winter, where people could stay and browse/read/eat and drink for hours and feel perfectly comfortable. I understand now that...

    A recurring fantasy over the years.

    But then I think of the hours and the ******** I'd have to put up with and I stash that fantasy away for a few more years.

    Always had a dream of having a small shop

    somewhere that was a cafe during the morning and day, and a bar at night.. not a huge fan of coffee myself (more of a tea-drinker to be honest) but I love the smell and I've made plenty of it for friends and family. Hopefully one day I'll get enough money and business know-how...

    My parents struggle daily to keep our family

    business going. I help as much as I can, and I hope to develop the business with them and open a café of my own, which will contribute to our family needs. I think it is important to have goals.

    With classical music playing in the background

    and having the aroma of coffee saturing the cafe. While the customer enjoy the snacks, and drinks with a smile in their face. It would be nice... If that could come true. Hahaha...

    The I Could...

    Have them use my own recipes. Ones that I've made up and nobody wants to try. i reckon it'd be fun, instead of fish 'n' chips, you get fish 'n' rice - a healthy alternative!! This could work!!!

    I think that when I retire,

    after I have amassed enough money I would like to move to a South American beach and open a cafe/gift shop that over looks the water. Maybe add a few rooms for bed and breakfast. I think that would make me happiest when I'm done struggling to live.

    Who wouldn't want that?

    It'd be so amazing! Your own little cozy place, filled with simple but beautiful decorations and delicious coffee! It's creating and calling a little piece of heaven your own!

    It would be old-Viennese style,

    with marble-topped tables, gilded mirrors and potted plants. Waiters would wear a black tie and a violin quartet would play in the background. There would be a coffee-and-pastry happy hour at 11 and at 2, to encourage people to get away from the office and learn to enjoy the...

    I've always dreamed of owning a cafe.

    A little coffee shop, maybe with a used book store. I have no idea why, maybe because this is the type of place I would frequent if I knew of one close by. It would be quaint, with regulars, like a mom and pop type store.

    My mother, who taught me to cook from the age

    of 4, always said I should run a restaurant or a cafe. I have never done so but do enjoy cooking. However 2 weeks ago I was cooking for 14 over a weekend and found it so exhausting I realise that now i will never do it!
