In Apple's Waiting Room: A comfortable date at Ladurée
The Apple Store in Covent Garden is my resort of choice. It is strategically placed in the wonderful Piazza, so much more civilised that Regent Street or any of the Mall-based locations. It is especially well sited for waiting around, especially when anticipating a Genius Bar appointment as I was doing this morning.
As far as I am concerned, Apple's waiting room lies just a few yards across the Piazza inside the welcoming doors of Ladurée. This is one smart café, a million brioches away from Starbucks, Caffe Nero and their like. It's petty pricey, mind, but worth every penny.
What better way is there to wait for a Genius or to celebrate the purchase of a new iPhone? Steve is in his heaven and all's well with the world.
