The Meeting Place – Coffee Shop – Simons Town – Cape Town

The meeting place is a cafe snuggled away on the first floor of an old Dutch Malay building in Simon’s Town, which is a little fishing village in south western Cape Town.

The owners have created a superb cafe where locals and tourists can meet, eat and drink good coffee.

The interior design is simple and cosy with lots of great ideas to borrow from, take a look.

Haas Collective – Coffee Shop – Cape Town

Haas is a creative collective which just happens to also have a fabulous coffee shop on the ground floor of their building.

It not only seems coffee but is a showcase for some of their designers work which can also be bought.

The interior design is on trend with a mix of upcylced furniture in a pared back building with hints of retro and steam punk all rolled into one.

I love this huge graphic on the side of a cafe in Soho London, It harks back to the past using typography but with a modern twist as it has been digitally printed.IMG_2632

Notcutts’ street food dining experience by Dalziel and Pow

We’ve brought our market-inspired dining concept to the Notcutts garden centre in Wheatcroft, Nottingham. Taking the scheme a step further, having originally launched the concept in the Notcutt’s Pembury branch earlier this year, we sourced three reconditioned Citroen H vans to act as standalone food sellers. Each van is individually named, branded and themed, and centre on traditional British cuisine. Dishes are cooked from scratch in each unit, enhancing the ‘independents’ feel. The Citroens are joined by an array of market stalls that provide locally sourced produce.

The Modern Pantry – Clerkenwell – London

Modern comes from the Latin term modernus; pertaining to, or characteristic of the current period. It conjures up the excitement of something new, fresh and original.

Pantry comes from the Latin word panis, meaning bread. A pantry is a cupboard or room which houses the necessities of life…

Together, these two words embody The Modern Pantry’s philosophy: the desire to please and excite the palate by fusing everyday cooking with modern ingredients. And the interior design isn’t half bad either.

No 114 Cafe – Tottenham Court Road – London

I was trying to make my way way down a very busy Tottenham Court Road yesterday and was stopped in my tracks by a view of a vintage bike on a building. On closer inspection I realised it was the sign for a fab new coffee shop called No 114. The cafe was buzzing with coffee lovers And had a great ambience. The design is what I would call stripped back vintage, it has a great feel of bygone areas without all the clutter.
It’s so refreshing to see an independent cafe thriving in a see of gimmicky looky likey chains.
And it just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a fortune on flashy trashy signage to get customers to notice you, it just takes a bit of imagination and class.

Here are a selection of photos I took & contact details of the cafe.

If you live in London or are passing through its well worth a visit.

Hideaway Jazz Cafe -Streatham – London

The Hideaway jazz cafe has just opened its doors on Streatham High Road in London, but this cafe isn’t hidden away; far from it in fact it stands out like a beacon in a sea of muldrum stores.
It’s the sister cafe to the famous jazz club which is hidden away just down a side street, hence the name.
The whole design of both the jazz club and the cafe are a superb example of how to create a distinctive brand and follow it through in great detail from exterior to interior in fact every minor detail is covered.
There is so much inspiration to be found here, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
Ps the coffee is great to.

Earl Grey and Rose – Streatham

I love discovering hidden gems and whilst working in Streatham recently I have found a few.

The first one I want to tell you about is Earl Grey and Rose situated only two minutes walk from Streatham Hill station but hidden away on Streatleigh Parade (see the Google map link below).

Owner Lydia Wood-Power has created a vintage haven in a busy town, her attention to detail is really superb from the outside in there are so many great touches to notice and oh and argh at.

But this is not just a tea room its a store and workroom to, Lydia runs sewing classes and you can even rent a sewing machine by the hour. I have to say I  had the best cup of tea I have had in years served in quirky miss matched china followed by a yummy cupcake.

Here are a selection of photos of the store and don’t forget to have a look at their website the link is below.

Cafe And….

A good  freind of mine popped along to the vibrant up and coming Redchurch St on the weekend and discovered a fab new coffee shop, Gallery and Store aptly called “Cafe And”.

The name is perfect and sums up a place to shop, meet and eat. It has a clean contemporary feel with a sprinkling of quirky details.

Here are a few snaps of the interior to wet your appetite, want more why not pop along and see for yourself.

They have a really lovely web design click here to take a peek at it.
