Sometimes, i go to the coffee with my friend. We order something to drink like coffee, fruit juice, milk tea. And after that, we have had some pleasure story to talk about daily life in my country.

actually i rarely go to cafe, because im not to like cafe, i more like go to market or restaurant

i rarely do when i hang out with my friends , we take some snacks but not from coffe , because there are many snack shops here arround my hometown .

Rarely, I buy a drink at a café because it is more expensive than the market. However, when I am traveling in places different to my city, I buy local or traditional drinks like coffee, mojito, some kind of juice.

Almost everyday, in my break time i used to buy a Caffe and a slice of chocolate cake in the nearest caffe.

after having a salary, I and my friends often go to shopping, then I usually buy a freeze matcha with ice cream in the Highlands coffee. because of corona virus, i came my country so I can't it.

I oftenment buy drinks and snacks for eat in home with my daugther or myy frineds, seeing films. I like very much.

actually i rarely buy drinks and snacks from cafe or restuarant. bxz where i live i could not to find any cafe. but sometimes my friends and i go to market for shopping after that we go to cafe and order some fresh fruit joices... we enjoy with each other this is very pleasure time for all of us. this situation feels me to establish new cafe near my house to offer some drinks and joices for our people...

Sometimes I go to a cafe and I prefer to drink french coffee with a piece of chocolate cake .

Sometimes, I buy some drink in cafe and prefer to drink orange juice than the others.
