Cafes culture in Iran

In this Tuesday, March 4, 2014 photo, young Iranian adults eat at a cafe in Tehran, Iran. For years Iranian authorities kept the number of cafes limited since they were seen as a symbol of Western influence and places to spread non-Islamic beliefs. But reports of cafes being shut because they violate “Islamic dignities” have dropped markedly in recent months, suggesting a growing tolerance by the authorities. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)
