Optical illusions and a coffee cup

Post by mysty »

It looks like a large coffee in the cup but after conducting a scientific test (small teaspoon)
The cup must have a high bottom.
There was not a lot of coffee in it. :lol:
3 euros 40s worth, that was two cups we were not sharing this time. :P
She has clean nails today :P

No idea on the price of the cups, that was just for the coffee. ;)

If that was the coffee as served isn't it a 'standard' coffee size (un café svp) in a large cup and at €1.70 that's a fair price?

You think that's expensive?
We had coffee beside the sea in Royan earlier this week and they charged us 3€50 each :shock: ....and we didn't even get a petite galette with it!

:shock: Christ! How the other half lives.
For that price I could buy a pack of the most wonderful fair trade coffee grown on a specific slope of some inaccessible mountain and picked by virgins.

If you had a petit crème .. i.e an espresso in a medium cup plus a small jug of (hot) milk on the side then 1.70€ is a most reasonable price. But then I noticed a biscuit in your photo .. so we would be asked to pay around 2€ or more to include that.
