As one who now visits Riverhead almost on a daily basis I am disappointed. There are only two places in this county seat (population 27,860, 2000 Census.) to drink decent coffee. And the first of these is Seattle's Best Coffee in Borders bookstore. But this afternoon the place was full to overflowing. I blame it on the local hospital staff and students, otherwise excellent people until they keep me from my cappuccino with extra shot. The other place is Starbucks in the Tanger Mall, a sprawling open-air shopping plaza some two miles from the center. There, or should I say here the coffee is excellent, but the place has no inside seating. So today I am forced to sit outside at a Tanger steel table on a Tanger fixed steel chair, where the Tanger umbrellas are furled for the season, the Tanger piped musak is blaring, and it is just starting to rain. At least I now have company...
