Why is he so grumpy?

I have often wondered the same. The women who owns the cafe is so lovely and always very friendly, it's just such a shame the person she leaves in charge doesn't do her or her cafe justice. He makes zero effort to offer friendly customer service, it's almost like we are bothering him each time we order a coffee :(

I have been asking myself the same question. He can't even muster a "hello", let alone a smile. No idea why he has been left to run the cafe day to day.

Once you get to know him, he's a nice guy.

Why don't you approach him and let him know? Maybe there are things happening in his life that cause him to react like this, he may not be aware of it.
I have a frown in my brown but i'm a super happy person, I would have some people say 'come on, cheer up, its not all bad' and realised it was my brow frown. I'm paranoid about it now but sometimes, things aren't always as they seem.
However, this said... he needs to be aware that he is potentially turning customers away because of it.

Yeah, if only this guy was as nice as all the people here who are slagging him off on the internet on something he very easily might read, rather than engaging with him directly. Sort of makes me want to side with him, to be honest.
