At a cafe, in a city, people come and go. The owner, the sage, the baristas, the writer, the student, the jerk, and the terrace dwellers, come from different worlds, and pass night after night at The Meeting Place for very different reasons. But once they enter through the creaky front door, their stories intertwine. Whether they like, know, or care for it, they are equal players in a social game much bigger and complex than lattes and lighters. They are organically thrust into each others’ lives, colliding for better or worse; passion, love, work, dreams, romance, friendship, disaster, and adventure. Told from multiple perspectives, The Meeting Place is a story of a cafe’s life force and the comers and goers who inspire its enduring social legacy.
