Hi! This blog is wonderful, especially for wide-eyed xmfc newbies stumbling around. (Like me!) So I'm wondering, do you know any fics involving bookshops/coffeeshops/tea parlours? Thank you!

Coffee shop AUs

Sorry it’s taken me so long dear! But there is a gold mine of coffee shop/book shop AUs out there

Summary: Librarian AU. Charles is the young librarian and Erik is the college student who is completely besotted with him.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: Teen, 11,292 words

My Opinion: It’s adorable and I love every character. Even Shaw. If you want a badass Erik with piercings and a sweet, innocent Charles, well then. Enjoy!

Summary: Erik runs a kosher bakery. Charles comes in for baked goods. They play chess, eat meringues, people drop other people’s keys down the toilet, and there’s mutant performance art.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: modern setting, wheelchair, PG, 17,615 words.

My Opinion: It’s cute. I don’t know what it is about baker Erik that pulls me in so much. Huh. Something to think on. He plays with dough guys.

Summary: The best part about Charles’ favorite bakery isn’t the location, and it isn’t the lovely smell, or even the Earl Grey cupcakes. It’s the Baker.

Erik Lehnsherr is a beautiful specimen of a man, particularly when his fussing over Charles takes the form of pastry.

Such a pity Charles doesn’t know Erik is an assassin.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: bakery, modern, Charles rules the world, 11,070 words, PG.

My Opinion: Raven gets angsty in this one, so it does stick true. I like the characterisations and Erik in general being protective. It’s lovely..

Summary: Fill for this prompt: Charles meets Erik Lehnsherr, his favorite novelist of all time at a coffee shop, but doesn’t know it’s him, and Erik just criticizes his own writing in front of his biggest fan.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: clueless Charles, AU, non-powered, NC-17, 39,242 words.

My Opinion: It’s a coffee shop AU with hella high recommendations, I’ve just not gotten round to reading it yet though I trust that it is good.

Summary: An X-Men First Class AU in which Erik owns a restaurant.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: NC-17, 14,531 words

My Opinion: It was cute if memory serves right (it’s been a while since I read it) but it has a happy ending which is what matters.

Summary: Azazel clearly has yet to understand the shattering power of Charles’ disappointment, so Erik takes one for the team, grabbing the cup and downing the remnants of the cappuccino like a shot while Azazel watches with morbid fascination.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: coffee shop AU, modern setting, no powers, PG, 4924 words

My Opinion: Classic coffee shop AU, adorable as hell too :D

Summary: Charles owns a coffee shop, Erik is a corporate lawyer (and owns some really nice suits). Things get a bit hazy from there.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: Hesits, mentions of killings, PG, 23,710 words.

My Opinion: It’s sweet and I like how Charles doesn’t take shit.

Summary: Charles has a terrible habit of multitasking, and that is probably why he absentmindedly tells the pizza man that he loves him when hanging up.

Then the pizza man says it back. And Charles is pretty much smitten from there.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: phone calls, PG, 4349 words.

My Opinion: It’s cutesy and adorable and Sean is fabulous. Not quite what you asked for but too adorable not to not read

Summary: This is the story of how her Charles met my Erik; it’s a modern-day AU, with powers; Charles is the owner of a restaurant called the Chessboard and the leader of its all-mutant staff, while Erik is an engineer working at Frost Industries.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: modern, first time, NC-17, 16,031 words.

My Opinion: The children are perfect. I mean. GAH. And the cute. Oh my. Restaurant AU, similar ish to what you wanted.

Summary: Charles is the owner of a book store, his best friend that he’s known since high school is a cop who’s recently been promoted, and, oh yeah, he’s madly in love with him.

Warnings/Rating/Word count: modern setting, misunderstandings, NC-17, 12,399 words.

My Opinion: It’s been a while since I read it but I remember it being sweet and perhaps slightly awkward but not sure about that (:

Latte @ Parlour Coffee, 468 Main ST. I give these guys ★★★★★. They were so sweet about my “heart” latte. I’m no coffee connoisseur, heck, I don’t even like coffee…So I can’t tell you if it’s a good brew or not! But it’s made fresh (not like how Tims has it sitting there) and it a nice little space in downtown Winnipeg. You definitely need to give it try!
