What are your coffee shop expectations?

I have been managing a coffee shop for 8 months after working in a roasting facility for 2 years.

This location is not ideal and is over 2000 square feet. Cost of doing business is huge! Therefore, I will be moving to a much smaller location in our newly enlarged local library.

In our current location I have offered Espresso & espresso drinks, several coffees, (no flavors as we are organic & fair trade) sandwiches, salads, baked goods, smoothies, Italian soda and bottled drinks.

I am wondering what all of you would expect in your favorite coffee shop?
