All I have been hearing about is Cafe Duet in the Courthouse Square, in Stroudsburg. So, after dropping Molly off at pre-school this morning, I found a parking spot right by this cute little place.
And I mean little.
Boy am I happy I did.
The owner, Daniel, could not have been friendlier. The space is insane. It is exactly like the cute little coffee shop of my dreams!
I ordered a cappuccino. It came in a big cup and saucer. The foam had a feather pattern on it! A feather pattern!! This is a really big deal for me. I drink coffee made in an old Mr. Coffee maker, every morning. I am not loyal to any one brand. I am loyal to my wallet, so this translates into a cup of whatever is on sale at the store. Yesterdays’ cup had no sugar in it because I am all out.
So a cup of cappuccino in a lovely cup and saucer, with a feather design on it was a decadent treat. And the price was nice too, for a little splurge on myself. It was $2.25. I’ll take it!
I sat in the small area in the back, that has cafe tables set up. I chose a little round bistro table and a bench, by the window, overlooking an outdoor seating area that looks like it could be in Paris.
Music was playing on…wait for it.. A RECORD PLAYER! Yes!!! Real vinyl. Real cappuccino. And one of the most wonderful mornings I have had to myself in quite some time.
GO, to Cafe Duet. I hope to be able to indulge in some of their baked goods, or granola. I can’t wait to try their soups and salads. Maybe that could be a nice lunch date for myself in the months to come. You can even sit at the window and look out onto the square, and I bet when the snow is falling, which sadly, will be soon, it will really be cozy.

SO happy this little jewel has opened in our town.
