Back before freeways and malls and fast food, when the cities of the South Bay had bona fide downtowns, virtually every main street had a Buffy's. Buffy's was the small coffee shop where the java flowed freely and the waitresses remembered not only your name but how you liked your eggs. You could almost set your watch by when the banker and the insurance agent and the former mayor arrived for their morning coffee.
