“This is not a cafe –
This is a war zone –
Ships officers –
Non solvable discussion area –
Mining, petroleum officers beverage spot.”
Excerpt from a note written on a napkin and left at Deux Gros Nez coffee house in Reno, NV, sometime between 1995-1998. The above excerpt became one of Deux Gros Nez’s mottos, ending up on t-shirts and coffee mugs.
