Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Strong points: A true cafe where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list.
Today I had another cappucino at Patina in Shizuoka City because I’m steadily getting addicted to them, and also because I wanted to check a question asked by Sissi at “With A Glass”!
Cute Saori/沙緒里さん told me she uses only her fingers and imagination!
So, what did she create for me this time?
A smiling frog!
Actually she got a bit miffed when I guessed it wrong at first. I must admit I didn’t look carefully at first!
Those bulging eyes…. A frog indeed!
Mind you usually they don’t smile, they just croak!
Saori is fond of this leaf pattern!
It didn’t matter how much I drank, the smiling frog refused to disappear!
