Cafe culture is flourishing in cities across the world. From London to Seoul, Melbourne to Shanghai and many cities in between, people are flocking to cafes. A recent phenomenon, cafe culture has made its reappearance only since the end of the twentieth century. What is the appea...l of the cafe for urban dwellers? And why now? `Having a coffee' might be a daily ritual, yet it is more than coffee that draws us to the cafe. Cafes are vital social spaces, technically connected workspaces, and businesses that are forging design and food trends. The cafe is the lens through which this book explores major changes occurring in everyday life in cities across the world. Urban regeneration has fuelled the growth of urban amenity and social consumer spaces. The impact of technology, social and workplace transformation, and the ascendency of the design and food industries all find expression in the spaces of the cafe. The specialty coffee movement is a thriving, global presence, uniting cafe staff and customers across geographical borders, with a shared commitment to the connoisseurship of coffee. In the book's global sweep, it examines the development of cafe culture in China, Japan and Australia, as significant and interesting departures from traditional European cafe culture. Australia is a world leader and successful exporter of its unique style of coffee and food. Interviews with cafe patrons and staff illuminate why the cafe has become a meaningful place for many people in the 21st century city.
