My Ode to Bongo Java

Bongo Java had once been my second home. I made it a habit to stop by here every day after my classes at Belmont. Then it developed into a Sunday afternoon habit. Well, here I am again on a Sunday, sitting on the deck, enjoying the breeze. When I lived in New York for a short time I made a great effort to look for an equivalent to Bongo there. It’s funny because I found a place like that the last week I was there, Grey Dog’s CafĂ©.

This is a place where I know I can sit and enjoy the outside and chat with people I see from only time to time. I can forget the troubles of my life and get some work done or read that next chapter in my book. It’s a good place for my mind to wonder too.

So if you’ve never taken the time to stop in you should try. The people are friendly and the coffee is good.

    The people are friendly?!? I’ve never experienced that. Maybe you are getting different people, but they always seem sullen and put out when I go in there.

    Yes they do have the indie-I’m-too-Good-For-You-Aire but if you start going regular at least one of them starts to remember you. It takes awhile. I just try to be nice every time and interact when I feel like it.

    The staff at the BJRC on 11th in East Nashville is usually friendly, as are the folks at Fido. I haven’t find much friendliness from the staff at the Belmont location. No idea why.

    But yeah, I love Bongo Java coffee. BJRC is my favorite location.
