subterranean

at the corner of foley & great titchfield street, there was once a gentlemen's underground public lavatory which was built in the late 19th century, but then it was closed in 60s; with a reported cost of £100,000, it is now transformed into an shoebox-sized charming little coffee joint while retaining much of the original features. the ATTENDANT serves coffee by the CARAVAN & other pastries + sandwiches while the doulton & co. toilet bowls separate the space across the bar where coffee drinkers congregate. having your daily caffeine fix below the cisterns subterranean style might not be everyone's cup of tea, but entering this sui generis establishment through the magnificent ornate ironwork shell at ground level is a jaunt that should not be missed
