In our country situation is different. There are so many tea shop near to road side. I frequently take my breakfast road side tea shop. Usually, i drink red tea and bread, sometimes banana and cookies also. And evening when i return from office i eat butter naan with vegetables and a cup of tea twice in a week. Other day take noodles and some local fast food.

Hi!

I often buy drinks and snacks from cafés. I often visit a cafeteria with my husband, we buy strawberry shakes and croissant.

I often hang on with my friends and we drink tea milk, tea, fruits, eat several food snacks, talks about life and some private story, have fun talking.

I only buy drinks and snacks from cafe when I meet with my friends.

Every morning my coworkers and I go to the Cafe store near to the office and we buy coffee for everyone. I usually like to drink an orange juice well freshly squeezed and eat a slice of bread. We also have a good time.

Rarely, I usually have a snack at home or at work.

I don't buy them from cafes... I buy them from supermarkets!
i do it seldom, because I don't into them so much!

Some time I purchase snacks but usually I did not like it.. but I like cold drink with biryani, whenever I go to Bazar I ordered biryani along with cold drink..

In our country everything buy from shops and markets there isn't any cafe shop if it's it doesn't buy anything else

I do not usually buy drink let alone snacks .
I hadrly ever buy drinks because i do not often go cafés if it happens i order Vinto with milk it is very popular in our local cafés .
last time i bought drink was three months ago while i was eating in a cafateria .
I am not totally keen on snacks like biscuits 'sweets 'gam and so on.
