Succulent Café.....a wonderful "Third Place!!"

"Succulent café" in Northcliff, Johannesburg, South Africa

I was so impressed with "Succulent Café" as a successful "third place" that I decided to put more pictures on my blog to inspire you to visit these "third places" and enjoy life! As I mentioned before, a "third place" is an informal gathering place where people can meet, put aside the concerns of home and work, and hang out simply for the pleasures of good company and some lively conversations.

I love "third places" because it helps me to recharge my batteries, whether it's to meet with a special friend, share my hearts desires or any concerns I have or to have a special time with my husband where it's just the two of us having a cup of coffee and catching up on the things in life or just to let my teeth sink into a beautiful decorative cup cake, a piece of chocolate cake or a lovely lunch! We all need these times and what I love about these places is that it is inexpensive. It doesn't cost a lot for a cup of tea or coffee and a delicious slice of chocolate cake!

These beautiful photographs above taken at Succulent café say it all!! I hope you are inspired by it....whether it is to visit a "third place", bake some cup cakes and decorate it or to start your own "third place!!!"
