There is no denying the allure of a long, wooden dining table, but I feel the need to speak up on behalf of the humble cafe table: this two-seater (sometimes four, if you really squeeze in) might not be fit for large dinner parties, but it's perfect for a quiet breakfast, an afternoon cup of tea, or simply a place to rest, eat, and enjoy yourself after a long day of cooking.
