If you were looking to spill the tea in Season 1 of “Big Little Lies, ” the best place to go was the local coffee shop — Blue Blues Cafe, in Monterey, California.
There, Celeste( Nicole Kidman) and Madeline( Reese Witherspoon) would chit-chat apart while the affable proprietor, Tom( Joseph Cross ), was on hand with a affectionate explain or to kick out Renata’s( Laura Dern) spouse( Jeffrey Nordling) for harassing Jane( Shailene Woodley ).
Ah, the good ol’ days.
Season 2, however, takes the women to another venue to espresso themselves, a coast gazebo-like coffeehouse, which utters its first appearance in an awkward incident between Madeline and Celeste’s mother-in-law, Mary Louise Wright, played by Meryl Streep.
That conversation is one of the highlights of the premiere episode, but it still manages to leave a Venti cappuccino-sized hole in our souls where Blue Blues used to be.
Here’s the coffee shop in Season 1 😛 TAGEND
