Classic British Cafes.

Classic British Cafes. Also known as ‘greasy spoons’ for obvious reasons (and akin to the famous American Diner I suppose). Fabulous stuff for nostalgia and culture buffs. What this site doesn’t tell you is just how much money many of these cafe owners make. Rather like London taxi drivers, cafe owners do all right for themselves, believe me. Even if they only have a hole in the wall type.

‘Often dismissed as ‘greasy spoons’, classic cafes are actually little gems of British vernacular high street design. This site celebrates their ambience and architecture with over 130 vintage Formica caffs reviewed, revealed and reappraised.’
