another letter from a customer…Posted: March 15, 2011
now its no secret that i love you all a hell`ve lot, i know smetimes its even seen by some as a ploy to get you in here and spending more (although we couldnt fit a smurf in here lately), but its true folks, we havent had a moody shit in here since that women said our toast wasnt toasted, remember her?? funny stuff….any who, i recieved an email from some one that i dont yet love and yet ive fallen in love with this person via email.
hows this email from a non-(yet soon to be) regular….
So I went to the corner café for the first time this Saturday.
Somewhere during breakfast my taste buds staged a coup, took control of my rational faculties and unconditionally demanded my immediate return to your establishment. Agreement was reached and as I was released from food induced reverie I suffered from the sincere regret that lunch was too soon, dinner was not served and re-opening would only be on Monday. I managed however to fit in a few bites of my wife’s lemon meringue which tasted like angel babies and stirred up further civil disobedience in my gastronomical parts.
Unfortunately, I find myself inconveniently living and working some distance from your establishment and although I would like to partake of your glorious fare every single day, this is alas not possible. (I am currently considering moving so if property comes up for sale nearby please let me know). In an attempt to at least feed my mind (if not my mouth) with imaginings of your food, I searched the net and found your blog. To my utter disappointment however I was unable to window-shop for my future meals as you do not list a menu.
I think as purveyors of my new-found obsession you should, nay must, provide some means for me to distant-view your menu, daily specials and other food related news. I am sure that many of your blogs are severely interesting but I sadly cannot eat them, fantasize about them, or quiet my mutinous innards with the promise of them. As far as I can tell your menu /specials changes often enough and I am sure that you will suffer some additional effort in updating menus on your blog. However, in return for your acquiescence to this demand I promise to ritualistically log in every day to see what I might be missing or alternatively be able to look forward to. I am sure I will not be alone.
PS. Searching for the café before finally making it this Saturday I couldn’t quite find easy / reliable info about your address or opening times either. This might also be a useful, if mundane, addition for first-timers.
