Classic Cafes: Cafe, Redchurch St E2 #5

Enclaves of the '50s & 60s

     


Hidden in what once must have been a thriving little community on the edge of Hoxton (and close by Spitalfields market) this little find is very similar to the old Tea Rooms as was. Blue painted wooden exterior, Helvetica sign, net curtains and inside an amazing worn old wallpaper-patterned interior: a parlour full of old Formica tables, worn Lino flooring and a proper caff counter & signage. A great find which can't be long for this word in an area that is fast being Loft-ed and St*rbucked street by street.
