Analog Cafe

Analog Cafe

You’ll find this sign in the window of one of my favourite coffee shops, Sublime Cafe in Kensington Market. I’ve been many times, but I only noticed the sign on my last visit. Maybe I overlooked it before.

The oddly shaped piece of wood, with its circular perforations, has a makeshift appeal and the no laptop pictogram is a nice gesture of solidarity with those who prefer the way cafes used to be.

Now that everyone is online almost all the time, do we need escape hatches from our digital lives? Are wifi-free zones the new sanctuaries?
