Ideal Job: Cafe owner

Someday me and MHD will have our own cafe. We both love coffee, good food, cooking good food, and delicious baked goods. I’ll leave it up to her to come up with a witty/quirky/cool name for the place (because she embodies all those qualities) as we envision a European-esque coffee shop cafe with no-nonsense offerings, a cozy and quaint atmosphere, and the kind of service you can usually only get at grandma’s house. She will run the front of the house (she is an excellent boss and has the best customer service skills of anyone this side of the Pacific) and I’ll run the back (running a kitchen is one area where perfectionism pays off). And you all will come and be our loyal customers.

Here’s a sample menu (very incomplete, only dreaming here, and in no particular order).
