"Where is the coffee shop?"

June 18, 2013


Wouldn't "Dov'è il caffè" translate to "where is the coffee"?

Well seeing that the Discussion Translation is: "Where is the bar?", we can assume that there might be a few mistakes with this question.

Yes. "un bar" is a coffee shop.

...A bar is a coffee shop?

June 21, 2013

It is. Bars in Italy work more like restaurants than they do in America. If you were looking for a bar that only sells alcohol, then you'd ask for "un bar americano". Just to say.

so i guess bar should be read like "coffee bar"

what a stupid question and what a dumb way to lost the last heart on the last question :(

This isn't a stupid question. A "coffee shop" in Italian is "un bar." "Coffee" in Italian is "caffè." A "cafeteria" in Italian is "una mensa." These are all different words and you just need to learn them.
