London's Luna Cafe
It’s an uncharacteristically cold day in London, and the
city infamous for dreary, rainy days is blanketed in a thin layer of snow.
After a quiet morning of sightseeing and art museums, my dad
and I seek refuge in a small coffee shop called Luna Café. With intimate
furniture and soft lighting, it feels more like a home than a business.
The quiet, snowy day has left the café’s patrons in a state
of quiet serenity, sheepish from the heat of their drinks. The display case at
the counter glows with the promise of something sweet.
I buy a chocolate
croissant and a cappuccino, served in ornate, white china. The creamy,
caffeinated beverage warms my core and the sweetness from the croissant
compliments the espresso perfectly. Somehow, my London snack was a mirror of the café and the day. Just a wonderful compliment to each other.
From the café I gaze out the window and watch the snowfall.
The grey sky is a calming sight, peppered in white flakes that float carelessly
down to earth.
I could have lived in this moment forever.
Watching the snow fall from the warmth and sweetness of a London Cafe
I could have lived this moment forever
