Emmas Coffee Shop, part of the Smalltown, USA Series by JBSimio


Remember when coffee shops still sold coffee?  Actually, neither do I, but apparently it used to happen.  Emma Baxter opened her coffee shop in this charming historic building nearly fifty years ago.  While her daughter now handles the day to day operations, Emma still exerts a fierce influence over her business.  Tourists often ask why the coffee shop doesn’t modernize and get with the times, to which Emma simply replies, “Smalltown takes care of its own.  This is what the town wants and this is what I serve.”  Records show that this building was constructed in 1918, but the local old timers cannot seem to agree on what its original purpose was.  The debate can often be heard at one of Emma’s tables over a nice cup of coffee.


Journey of the Mind Bookstore occupies the second shop.  The owner, Neil Dixon, takes pride in his vast collection and searches constantly for rare and out of print volumes.  Unfortunately, the love he shows for his leather bound antiquities makes him a fairly poor salesman.  He hates to part with his treasures.  Another fine bit of gossip at Emma’s centers around how much longer Neil’s business can stay afloat.


Emma’s Coffee Shop is the sixth release in the Smalltown, USA series.  This package contains both growable and ploppable ve

It's good to see these BAT's. One does get tired of a litany of tall skyscrapers. Also, I like to have small towns and farmland surrounding my big cities. This will come in handy.

10/10 for the lot; 5/10 because you're too young to remember when coffee was sold in coffee shops. ;-) Seriously, fabulous (as always) work; your small town series fills a serious gap in the game.

Thanks everyone... sadly I'm not as young as I made myself sound, I just thought it would be funnier this way! :)

This has been a great BAT series; realistic buildings that are not $$$ skyscrapers (remember not every town is Hong Kong), and great descriptions. Keep it up - 9/10
