Swedish Coffee?

The smell of fresh ground coffee at an outdoor barrista was too good to pass up. We were finishing the day at the J. P. Getty Museum in LA and had to stop for a fine cup of coffee before heading back home in late afternoon Friday traffic. I ordered two cafe au laits for Martha and me. These are normally morning coffees in Europe, but we have found them to be great afternoon coffees, robust regular coffee with steamed milk on top.
I brought them over to Martha and she burst into laughter. In the multi-cultural mix of LA, cafe au lait became cafe Ole (Swedish man of Spanish exclamation?)
