The Amar Cafe has also reopened recently in the two disused telephone boxes on the corner of Chiswick High Road and Town Hall Avenue. Winner of the top prize for innovative use of a phone box, which otherwise could be just a damp and smelly vandalised relic.
Thanks to Oliver Stirling for the picture. He says:
“The service from the husband and wife team is quick and friendly and their Colombian coffee is absolutely delicious”.
It is noticeable that both the newly opened D Grande and Amar Cafe are designed to serve customers with minimal personal contact. Maybe that’s what the whole High Rd will look like soon: all the shops will have open fronts and tables outside.
Matt Hancock has indicated that cafes with outside spaces could be allowed to reopen over the summer, assuming social distancing can be maintained.
We’ll be positively Mediterranean!
