The street cafe provides a unique setting, special to cities: a place where people can sit lazily, legitimately, be on view, and watch the world go by. Therefore: encourage local cafes to spring up in each neighborhood. Make them intimate places, with several rooms, open to a busy path, where people can sit with coffee or a drink and watch the world go by. Build the front of the cafe so that a set of tables stretch out of the cafe, right into the street. The most humane cities are always full of street cafes.
People watching is one of my favorite things to do, and I love sitting down and watching the world walk by while I drink a cup of coffee. Unfortunately, Canada doesn’t seem to have too many cafes like this.
