Pause Cafe has a warm and cozy decor with hints of Moroccan undertones. Upon entering, it is almost impossible not to feel instantly at home. There are no uniforms, stiff advertisements or empty stale space. The music ranges from indi-rock to Sade to Michael Bubblé. The owner, Amine Sadki, is usually found smiling behind the counter or sitting with customers getting to know them. The environment is so comfortable that strangers feel at ease conversing with one another. Many of the pastries (i.e. coffee cakes, raspberry bars, and cookies) are made by a friend of Amine’s in her kitchen. The coffee and espresso are made only the way a European knows how to make it.
