the myth

There's a joint called Not the Old Fish Shop Cafe near Central. Weird name huh? I grabbed a coffee there this morning.

I asked the barista why it has such an enigmatic yet stimulating name.

"Apparently the woman that started it about 15 years ago owned a place called The Fish Shop Cafe in Newtown with her husband. They got divorced and she started this place up. That's the myth, i don't know if it's true or not. That'll be $3 thanks," she said.

Why would you call a cafe a fish shop? Ironic fucking hipsters.
