The Old Town Cafe

January 4, 2008

A friend recommended the Old Town Cafe in Scappoose as a place to hang out with Wi-Fi. They have a great atmosphere if they’re just more friendly. The deco is great. the light jazz is peaceful, and the food and drink selection is great. […]. listen

However, after two visits, I don’t think I’ll be returning. There is more than a little something missing. The atmosphere and general gestalt are just harsh. There seemed to be a lack of friendliness in the staff and owner.

Indeed, I walked in talking on my phone, but while I was getting my laptop setup, the owner sort of pushed her way past me to retrieve a power strip that had been there since my last visit. The cashier scowled at my request for soy milk – and seemed to skimp on the amount.Although they offer free wi-fi, I was the only one computing. In fact, I had the general impression that they’d prefer I not take up space (which was abundant).I’m looking for a place to call home. A place to conduct meetings, a place to meet with people, a place to connect with the community, a place to eat meals, and place where I can be a part of the family.I probably brought in several new customers to my former hangout. Does anyone want my business?(Part II update here)

    They don’t even have their own web presence and all the review sites want me to join first.
