Lately I often buy water or coffee in a café.

I hardly ever eat or drink anything outside the house.

I was sometimes buy coffee but now I seldom do that because I have a coffee machine now and I will buy another for my office in future .

I rarely visit cafés... :|

Actually, I don't buy in the coffees often

When I was in university, then I and my friends frequently go to the canteen and bought cold drink, Samosa, and other many things.We spend long time in canteen.

Not much, I sometimes go to the cafe with my colleagues and drink a cup of tea or freshly squeezed orange juice.

Before pandemic, I bought drinks or some desserts every weekend. I went to cafés with my mom, and We ate some desserts such us chocolate cake, apple pie, etc.

Now, I dont go outside, because my country is blockdown.

I drink coffee in the coffee shop twice a week, but I don,t buy snacks.

I go to cafè once a week. I usually order drinks like aperitif. Sometimes I order tea with cookies.
