I disagree. I like businesses which make an effort. The idea that people go to a cafe to be seen is silly. Or to "interface" . This is not Manhattan.

Lots of businesses make an effort. It’s just that pretentious people only like going to places that others deem to be equally significant.

Perhaps you could publish a list of places you deem to be acceptable.

ETA: do you seriously think that anyone on the IOM goes to a place for breakfast because they think it's trendy or something? It's a bonkers suggestion.

I deem all places acceptable. Unlike what you seem to suggest I don’t exclude any places (such as your comments on the Caff) on the grounds that they don’t serve avocado on toast or some other equally pretentious substance for £10 a go.

Are you drunk or just very confused?

I haven't even mentioned the Caff or avacados.

Why would I be drunk? Sorry you mentioned smoked salmon and Noa as being a prerequisite. It was another poster who mentioned avocado on toast. The argument from both posters sounded so similar I must have got confused. You did challenge Thommo2010 on his proclaimed preference for the Caff though in a rather condescending way. 

I recall you said “I get that some people prefer milky stewed tea, sliced white and a sausage made out of leftovers and gristle :) “ Which I read (of course I could be wrong) as a bit of a put down along social status lines.

I also said that I should probably add a smiley and that I also liked McDonalds.

And I was absolutely not condescending. You maybe just chose to hear it like that.

Ffs.

Lots of middle class people like McDonalds. It’s like going down market without being seen to go down market. A bit like a visit to Dealz. It isn’t really some cheap market stall emporium where you buy cheap crap. It’s a novel low budget shopping experience.

Please don’t try perpetuate your poor trolling as I’m not interested. Everyone knows you’re no good at it. But then again I suppose it’s good to have a reason to live throughout these long dark months,
