    Yalt I think the cafe industry has quite a way to go before burst. Restaurants are GeneraLlly for dinner and diners are more willing to travel for dinner. This means restaurants get concentrated in areas.

    However cafés tend to be more local, and lots of cafés are opening in suburbs that used to be dead. Lots of suburbs only have 1 cafe and are booming.

    I do wonder whether in 30 years or so we'll look back at coffee the way we now look at cigarettes. I'll be telling my kids "yeah, it was really like that. There were cafés in every suburb and people used to walk around with coffee in cups made of paper! We must have looked so ridiculous." My kids will say: "didn't you know it was so bad for you?". "Well, sort of, but we didn't know just how bad. The big coffee corporations covered up their evidence."

    I imagine I'll still be a coffee snob.

    I think it's worth remembering that 'cafes' as per the IBISWorld designation are not necessarily coffee-dominated establishments. The less formal, French Bistro style establishments may well be captured in the cafe category.
