Sitwell's in Clifton

My writing perch this afternoon is Sitwell's Coffee House in Cincinnati's Bohemian Clifton neighborhood.

Sitwell's, located next door to the venerable Esquire Theater on Ludlow Avenue, is named for Edith Sitwell (1887-1964), a British poet and critic who once visited the U.S. (in 1948), but never made it to the Sitwell Coffee House. Probably because it didn't exist until many years later.

Above is my corner booth, with a cool "Convers-O-Call," an ancient intercom (methinks) device.

I ordered a brie snack with walnuts and craisins, and a yogurt fruit smoothie to fortify me for the afternoon's writing. Which I should be getting to. Any minute now. Seriously....
