Love The Cafe
22 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Appreciating The Cafe requires the watcher to slow to the pace of an English Seaside, what a delightful escape. The characters are gentle no hacked off limbs, no tawdry affairs. I love the subtle development of each character, no the jokes are not always belly laughs but then that's what makes it real - bad jokes bind the characters just as they do in real life. There is the same conspiratorial feel to that shared knowledge and that creates a bond. There is also an unspoken acceptance of each person's quirky behaviour that shows us, the viewer, that these people care about each other and that it's a privilege for us to be sharing it. I thought the series charming and absolutely addictive. I only hope more people 'get it' so that we can have series 2 - otherwise l will be left watching this series over and over - and l will !
