Last night I visited the Affogato Coffee Bar in Bellevue to hear Nadina Bembic perform. I had tried to gather a group of folks who have been missing the coffee at Corbet Street's Central Perk in Tarentum, but in the end it was a rather small expedition.
Affogato has three connected rooms for various types of socializing. The large entry room includes a circular bar. There is a more intimate space for a performer.
There is a back room where I saw some young people playing Scrabble and Boggle. The bookshelves in the back room had magazines, books, and children's books. A number of times during the evening I saw parents walk their children to the bookshelves to select a new book for the child to read. This was definitely a child-friendly environment.
As an additional treat for the evening, Dina's niece played and sang during the breaks.
It was a bit of a drive from Tarentum, but an evening well-spent.
