Visiting a nice café, especially during the weekends, is one of my favourite things to do. Thankfully, there are plenty of cafes in my old town to help me do that, and today, I will talk about one of those cafes here.

As I have already mentioned, the café, I visit, is located in my own town, but it is kind of far away from where I actually live. Of course, at one point, it used to be rather close to my home, but it had relocated a couple of years ago to a different place due to some road construction and city expansion works. But, in either case, I am glad that the café is still in operation because it is certainly a bit different from other cafes in the town. And you will know why I am saying this in a minute.

Anyway, I don’t really visit this café to enjoy any kinds of foods, rather I visit it, mainly to enjoy coffee and fruit juices, even though this café certainly serves some of the most healthy and delicious foods in town such as mushroom pepper steak, Italian pasta and Thai soups, among many other items. But, as far as I am concerned, I just love their freshly made fruit juices, coffee, and light music. Here it is worth mentioning that I am a very familiar face in this café, obviously because I visit it quite often so they don’t really mind if I just sit there for hours, doing literally nothing.

I visit this café, mainly because it is not only surrounded by a nice environment but also has a rather pleasing atmosphere inside it. Besides, the very nice and professional behaviour of all the staff members there is also something that encourages me to visit this place again and again. Last but not least, I visit this café because they serve different things on different days, instead of serving just the same kinds of foods every day, to make things a bit more interesting for its customers.

Where it is:
The Rustic Cafe is situated on the busy street of the city centre. It's located in a historical building with beautiful pastoral decor that gives it a unique charm. The cafe has an outdoor seating area, which is perfect for people-watching and enjoying the hustle-bustle of the city.

What kinds of foods and drinks it serves: 
The Rustic Cafe serves a wide range of foods and drinks, including pastries, sandwiches, salads, and coffee. They have an extensive menu that caters to everyone's needs. The quality of the food and drinks is exceptional, and the prices are reasonable.

What you do there:
I usually visit The Rustic Cafe with my friends to catch up over a cup of coffee or have a light lunch. The atmosphere of the cafe is cosy and welcoming, and the staff is friendly and attentive. I also like to come here to work on my laptop, as they provide free Wi-Fi, and the environment is peaceful and conducive to work.

And explain why you like to visit this cafe:
I like to visit The Rustic Cafe because of its warm and inviting ambience, excellent quality of food and drinks, and its central location. It's a perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day, and the outdoor seating area is ideal for enjoying the city views. The cafe has become my go-to spot for meeting friends, working on my laptop, or just enjoying a quiet moment alone.


Sample Answer 3:

Thank you for choosing this nice topic for me. In fact, one of my favourite things to do is to spend my time in a nice café, no matter where I visit, and today I would like to talk about one such café.

Thankfully, this nice café is very much located inside my university campus where students just love to visit. Located in a nice environment, covered by large trees, this café doesn’t only attract university students, but also the general public who visit the university to meet their friends and families, pretty much on a regular basis.  

Since this café is located very close to the university bus stop, it also seems to be the first stop for many university students. It is in this place where many of them sit and relax, while also enjoying some snacks and drinks at the same time, before departing the university or starting their usual student activities. 

By the way, in addition to serving snacks and drinks, such as cakes, biscuits, pastries, soft drinks and fruit juices, this university café also serves breakfast and lunch to students.

After all, for many female students like me, who travel from far and have a busy class schedule, this university café seems to be the only place where they can enjoy some great breakfast and lunch quickly. And they can do so at an affordable price too, without ever going out of the university campus. In addition to enjoying some nice snacks and drinks here, I also use this large café to hang out with my friends while also surfing on the internet at the same time. 

Anyway, while others have their own reasons for visiting this café, I like to visit this café, mainly because I can sit in this place, and a very large place in that too, for hours and continue my study related works, without being bothered by its staff or management. I like this café also because it is in this place where I get to hang out with some of my best friends on a regular basis.
