Classic Cafes
|Reportage Special: The Koffi Pot, Welling (Photos: Claude Moreira, webmaster


Originally owned by an Italian family called the Feraras, this much-loved local dates from the 1930s and retains an unusual collection of coffee pots ­ all sizes, shapes and colours ­ displayed on a long shelf over the counter. The outside sign boasts 'Builders BreakfastsHorlicks and Bovril'. The large interior is a fantasia of lustrous frosted lemon and lime opaque glass, set off with original ceiling fans, neon strip lights and a pair of beautiful old fashioned stick-on-letter wall menus. Truly Valhalla in Vitrolite for classic cafes fans.
