Coffee Bar in Bay Ridge

Here is a slice of down-home-town americana
no trendy types here
ex-servicemen and their wives
fried breakfasts
talking 'bout the movies
eggs and sausages sizzle...

"never saw Sam that man."


"They caught him in the act."

"This is not an asylum."

"Are you sure?"

"They're gonna give you a number
You gotta write the number down."

"Sad about Tommy wasn't it?"


"Y'know, he used to come in here three or so times a week,
have his omelete, read the newspaper..."


"In fact he always sat just where you are sitting."

"I'd better move then."

"Ha ha!"

"No, you're ok. It doesn't matter where you're sittin'.
When your time is up, you gonna go."

"He he"
