Café ‘ope

A light supper in Café Hope, the jaundiced bistro in the New Library at Queens University Belfast. You’d expect it to be busier, given how many students are fighting for desk space in the library during this exam period, but the coffee is pricey (and not that great) and you can’t get chips with the gourmet burger of the day (£5.25). Fatal flaws, and a huge captive audience missed…

Addendum: an overheard conversation between a waitress and another customer reveals that there can be no chips in Hope, because the university won’t allow a deep-fat fryer in the library building.
