Now a rival coffee shop, Cafe Sol, has come up with a competing offer. This offer is for a small soup and a “special sandwich” for €6. On the face of it this is quite an interesting offer – especially as the option of soup now compared to a coffee with the approaching winter is appealing.
However, by being just that little bit stingy about it, Cafe Sol have taken the good out of the offer. I don’t really mind the small soup (though it’s a bit sad), but it’s the “special sandwich” that’s the problem. As it turns out, a “special sandwich” is really only plain chicken, plain ham, or plain egg.
This is compared to the Insomnia where you can get any size coffee, as well as any sandwich in their range. Nice try Cafe Sol, and I’m sure you’ll attract plenty business with the offer, but not mine. Well, unless it gets really really cold.
