Some confusion in the arrangements today. Café choice No.1 turned out to be closed when you arrived, choice No.2 open, friend late, text messages lost in the ether, food order placed before new information received. Consequently you have had lunch in one café (choice No.2) and are now on coffee in choice No.3. Your friend has still not arrived at any of them.
Perhaps this has worked out for the best though – at least in terms of lunch and coffee. And cake. The pleasingly brusque waiter deposits a perfect looking cafe cheio and pastel de nata on your table.
Your friend arrives.
