雅思口语里经典的cafe还记得不，最近又是各种出现。现在的咖啡店除了要有情调，更是得有特色，没有主题都不好意思开门。什么zoo coffee啊，有猫在的咖啡店啊，各种回忆童年主题的啊，总之没有个什么selling point，就不要说自己是café啦。雅思考官之所以出了道描写咖啡厅的题目，估计就是想了解一下各地的特色店铺吧……
I’d like to talk about a café called Mr. Wang, which is located near my school, actually it’s only within walking distance of my school gate.
First of all, the biggest feature of this café is that the owner keeps two adorable cats that are not afraid of people at all. So this place has become a magnet for cats lovers, like me. After school, I just love to hang out in this café, having a cup of milk and petting those two cats.
The owner is extremely hospitable, he’s on a first-name basis with every regular, and we always get some small gifts and free stuff from him on our birthday.
The environment and decoration of the café is unique, it’s like it’s specially designed for young people. I mean, the owner prepared board games and video games for the guests, so during weekend, there are always a bunch of students gathering here. And it also has a projector and a huge screen, the owner would play a movie on a regular basis, usually on Saturday night.
Oh, and buffs would love this place, ‘cause there are action figures everywhere in this café, including mous characters from American and Japanese animations.
Besides those two cats, what I love about this place is that the owner bought magazines and books for his guests. So for me, it’s a perfect place to kill time. The owner has got great taste, I mean, the background music he plays is always soothing and relaxing, so I always have a good time there.
2. to be on a first-name basis with somebody就表示很熟，可以直呼姓名的那种(to call them by their first name as a sign of a friendly informal relationship)，英式说法是o be on first-name terms with somebody.
5. action figures就是我们常说的“手办”(a doll representing a soldier or a character from a film/ movie, TV show, etc.)
