    I won’t be a moment?
    first time i see that one, is that Australlian english?

    • David Russell says:

      I had never seen or listened it before either. It might be a typing mistake and may want to refer “It won’t be a moment”.

    • Fiona says:

      Mark thinks it will take time to get his drink and this is why Hiromi said ‘take your time’.
      She added up the nice view as she makes him feel easy his taking time.
      She said ‘see you in a minute’ rather than in a moment.
      He wanted to excuse a bit more by saying ‘see you in a bit’ as he was already late and needs more time for his drink.

  2. Fui says:

    I just want to know what Hiromi means by saying “It’s great. I recommend it.” Did she answer Mark’s question?

    • ChinhDo says:

      Yes, “it’s great” means that it’s taste is delicious and “I recommend it” means that she suggest Mark should try it.

  3. Mark White says:

    Yes, she did.

    The latte was great.

  4. Eizoh OKabe says:

    I don’t get the meaning of Mark’s words,” OK, I won’t be a moment.”.

    I’m looking for somebody to help me understand it.

    • Martin says:

      it means, that he is away for “one moment”
