People Were Acting Strangely In The Coffee Shop.. Days Later? Oh My.. This Is PRICELESS.

Today, we are going to share a very special story with you. It features two people, a coffee shop, and one strange request. We think you’re going to absolutely love it!

As two tourists sat in an Italian coffee shop, they noticed a very puzzling pattern. When local residents placed an order, they always told the waiter to put a cup off coffee on the wall. This would then prompt the waiter to write down “cup of coffee” on a piece of paper and tape it to the wall.

Why were the locals paying for two cups of coffee but only drinking one? Why did they pay extra to just place a little piece of paper on the wall? None of this made any sense to the tourists.

However, a few days later, when they comeback to the coffee shop, they learn the incredible truth. Take a look below to see the whole story.

I sat with my friend in a well-known coffee shop in a neighboring town of Venice, Italy, the city of lights and water.

As we enjoyed our coffee, a man entered and sat at an empty table beside us. He called the waiter and placed his order saying, “Two cups of coffee, one of them there on the wall.”

We heard this order with rather interest and observed that he was served with one cup of coffee but he paid for two.

When he left, the waiter put a piece of paper on the wall saying “A Cup of Coffee.”

While we were still there, two other men entered and ordered three cups of coffee, two on the table and one on the wall. They had two cups of coffee but paid for three and left. This time also, the waiter did the same; he put a piece of paper on the wall saying, “A Cup of Coffee”.

It was something unique and perplexing for us. We finished our coffee, paid the bill and left.


After a few days, we had a chance to go to this coffee shop again. While we were enjoying our coffee, a poorly-dressed man entered. As he seated himself, he looked at the wall and said, “One cup of coffee from the wall.”

The waiter served coffee to this man with the customary respect and dignity. The man had his coffee and left without paying.

We were amazed to watch all this, as the waiter took off a piece of paper from the wall and threw it in the trash bin.

Now it was no surprise for us – the matter was very clear. The great respect for the needy shown by the inhabitants of this town made our eyes well up in tears.

Ponder upon the need of what this man wanted. He enters the coffee shop without having to lower his self-esteem… he has no need to ask for a free cup of coffee… without asking or knowing about the one who is giving this cup of coffee to him… he only looked at the wall, placed an order for himself, enjoyed his coffee and left.

A truly beautiful thought. Probably the most beautiful wall you may ever see anywhere!

Pass on the smiles. Share this story with  your friends and family.
