Beanscene - Food Coffee Music ( but, more importantly, food )

Despite being a big fan of Starbucks, it's always nice to see some
healthy competition - Beanscene seems to have it cornered up here in
Scotland; open at 0700, closed at 2300, serving coffee and FREE wireless
( well, free for an hour anyhow ) all day.

My colleague and I used one in Glasgow a few weeks ago, whilst we were
getting ready for a client proposal - hey, it was 2200 but we were
"working" so coffee was close at hand.

Sitting here now, feeling very glad that I chose to avoid the
potentially high-cost breakfast at the hotel around the corner, and grab
a coffee and a honey-bran muffin.

The other thing I like is that they sell their coffees by the shot -
forget tall, grande and venti - try 2 Shot, 3 Shot and 4 Shot - it does
what it says on the (coffee) tin.

Nice.......

Hey Jon

I have now :-)

Thanks for the link - shame they don't run on, say, Lotus Connections :-)

PS Just saw your doppleganger in an Edinburgh street.

Dave, I may be heading off to the other side of the world for a couple of weeks, but just click your fingers and I'll coming running with a Black 2-shot Americano.

I know my place....

Lewis, OK, let me know when you arrive in Asia, and I'll be sure to request a coffee ASAP :-)
