Beany Business - Coffee Shop

Welcome to Beany Business, a small coffee shop for all your caffeine needs. Most of the exterior still shows the original roots of the building as a cookiecutter factory and the owners of Beany Business have done their best to keep the brick, concrete and glass intact for a sturdy and modern look.

The interior on the other hand, gives off a different vibe, with an eclectic collection of furniture that looks like it might have come straight from your grandmother's attic. Don't be surprised if it actually does. Order a coffee or something fancier at the bar and settle down in one of the comfortable sofas. Choose a seat upstairs for casual business meetings or grab a magazine from the reading table downstairs.

A copy of this lot has been playtested and although it might get a bit cramped, I haven't seen any major issues. This lot was built for my Simblr Advent Calendar.

Technical Details
Lot Size: 1x2
Lot Price: § 37.960
CC: None

Additional Credits:
An unknown coffeeshop in Copenhagen, Denmark I visited last summer which had the same sofas, more or less.

Gorgeous, love it, thank you. Reminds me of 'Friends'.
Not actually evil.

Love the seating area in the loft! The space feels small in a good way, intimate. Local coffee shop, not giant Starbucks.

It's homey and not cluttered. The loft is a nice touch. Thanks!

A good example of why good design is more important than a bunch of CC.

Thank you for this nice and charming (and not overwhelmingly large and commercial!) coffee shop lot.

Funnily enough there is a cafe I pass on the way to work which is rather similar to this. Nice for a town cafe. I like the mis-matched chairs and the comfortable feel. Like the frontage too. Good job. Now I want coffee.

This is such a cute little lot! I think it's the first coffee shop I ever had in my game in which sims actually stad down to chat and drink coffee, instead of just standing around. I love it!

Had to have this. Is perfect for a grungy downtown coffee shop.
