I though they were role playing just like in the beginning of the movie of "Four Christmases" with Reece Witherspoon or Vince Vaugh (I'm sure I spelled his last name wrong) or in that one episode of Modern Family when Claire and Phil role play at the hotel bar, but reading other reviews... Maybe it is simply amnesia.

I didn't understand this the first time I read it a couple of months ago, but now that I've reread it, it all makes sense!
He has short-term amnesia, I'm guessing, that causes him to forget things every now and then, so he goes in there with the intention of meeting up with Claire, but then forgets as soon as he smells the coffee. She was surprised when he told her he was waiting for someone because she realized he had forgotten. She takes it in stride, though, because this happens often. She's trying to help him 'come back' through conversation, but when she realizes he's not going to remember she gives up and leaves, but she learned some interesting things about what he thinks of Winter weddings. At the end, the picture triggers his memory and he chases after her, remembering that they were supposed to have a date in the coffee shop.
Well, I'm hoping that I've got it right, but I understand most of it now. It seems so much more sweet now :D

I believe someone has plagiarized the concept of this story in a strikingly similar way and I think you need to know about it.

I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to post this, but I've been super busy and... I'm sorry :( Anyway, this is Melissa from A Drop of Romeo and this story was added to the One Shot category! Congrats, hun. Here's your review:
Melissa Thinks: Even though I knew what was gonna happen from the very beginning, The Coffee Shop was still quite an enjoyable read. It takes place in a coffee shop, where a man sits down at an empty table, waiting for someone. We don't know who or why, but his conversation with the mystery woman who sits down across from him may reveal the answers. Conceptually, it’s beautiful; a simple scene that makes your heart skip just from the amazing romantic and mysterious tones. The style is fantastic and fresh with a great amount of characterization for such a small amount of writing. Words seem to flow and fit together like pieces of a puzzle with a pleasant voice, showing how talented the author is. The ending is bittersweet, yet it it's still happy and leaves much to the imagination of the reader. The Coffee Shop is definitely going on my favorites list.

...I'm not sure if he had amnesia or not?
I like the liquidity of the words. They sort of went with each other. Some parts felt choppy, but most of it was rhythmic and the story progressed well on this tone.
However, I don't know what to make of it. He had a car accident and he had amnesia and he had a picture in his wallet of the woman but he didn't recognize her when she sat across from him?
Nope. No logic.

Now this is extremely cute! Yes, you knew what was coming but I don't care! It was adorable, perfectly executed and a quick easy read on a day - that ironically is a gray, misty day!

This was a lovely story. I think it was just the right pace, and just the right amount of teasing out the clues.
You made it feel whimsical, and I could picture all the momments, perfectly, in my head.

ıt was a little bit predictable, but still, it was a nice job.
It started long, ended short. It gave the complicated feelings then it slapped the truth.
Liked the way of your writing.
makes me tremble.
Also,(must add:)) an interesting view of coffee

Hi. I like this story, but I've read it before (it was almost exactly the same.)
I read a similar one (diff names though) on and just thought I should let you know. You may have had your story stolen, you may have stolen the story (sorry. Don't wish to put any blame on you but it has a slim possibility) or you may have published it on two websites. Either way... Just letting you know
