The coffee shop has a long history. Coffee houses date back to at least the 1600s. They were places "to gather, socialize, and share ideas," as they still are today.
Did you know? Long ago, coffee shops were illegal in many parts of the world. This was because they allowed people from all backgrounds to interact as equals. But coffee shop equality prevailed, and many famous books and ideas were born over shared cups of coffee.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Cafe
How to Draw a Great Looking Cafe for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the cafe outline by outlining the structure of the building. Use straight lines to sketch an incomplete rectangle with no top. Draw an arched doorway on one side and a rectangular window on the other.
Draw another, smaller rectangle inside the first to form the window frame. Then, draw straight vertical and horizontal lines that cross perpendicularly to form the window panes. Lastly, draw a horizontal line along the bottom of the building.
