My beautiful caff

Wandering about Kingston at brunch time last Monday I was saddened to discover that the Eden Cafe had closed for the last time. Such was my job dissatisfaction recently I did some research into opening a cafe. Just the fun bits really – coming up with a menu, costing the various bits of kitchen equipment, trying to decide on the seating, looking up retail leases. Stuff like that.

  2. And...probably nothing more than a few hours worth of daydreaming. Sorry.

    If it's going to happen I think it'd have to be up north. And that can't happen for a little while yet, for very boring reasons.

  3. I've always loved caffs and greasy spoons. Kev and the band used to meet up in one.

  4. Hello John,

    What a pleasant surprise – I’ve seen you about, we share similar views on Bill Oddie, I remember. And greasy spoons. And “Searching for the Young Soul Rebels" by the sound of it.

  5. That makes us practically related! You'll see I 'borrowed' your theme and opened it up to transport caffs. Hope you don't mind? (I did name-check you!) All the best.

  6. Mind? Of course not. I'm positively delighted.
