• Carolyn Smith is too funny to fit squarely into the "romance" segment of the publishing world. "The romance genre's really locked in," she observes, suddenly clutching her chest and blurting out in mock-horror, "'Is she drinking a mimosa? Noooooo! It has to be a Bloody Mary!'"

There, you might have a hearty lunch, catch up, wind down, play bridge---or sit in silence with nothing but your newspaper and a heavenly cup of espresso, pulled with love and consummate attention to detail. Grace Parry, who, with husband Mike, owns Grace Cafe, describes the establishment's chief purpose: "To impart grace to all who walk through these doors...It's about how we treat people, it's about excellence".
