A coffee shop ambiance can foster creativity.
This final note on the way out today, something to get your creative juices flowing.

Why? Turns out research shows that a moderate amount of ambient noise is good for creativity. The perfect range is about 70 decibels -- yes, the same as you might find at a coffee shop or café.
Extreme quiet, by the way, does not foster creativity.
