So I found myself cabin shopping (long story) and one of the cabins was actually a cafe. The coolest cafe I’ve been in for a while. You walk in and you’re immediately faced with the desk where you order, only once you’ve ordered does the magic start.
If you’re into the 60s, it’s certainly a place for you. In a tiny village called Twycross, exists this blast from the past. The cafe itself isn’t what I’d call 60s-esque, it’s filled more so with wooden furniture to suit the cabin (it’s what they’re there to sell after all). But instead it’s the little knick-knacks and wall hangings dotted about.
As we sat waiting for our lunch, there were a selection of genuine (well kept) copies of Woman’s Weekly dotted about from 1968. It was just so interesting to flick through, a lot of knitting patterns, cooking/recipes, even some travel guides- which I imagine back in the 60s was so exciting! I just really love stuff like this, especially when they’re originals.
The advice columns were pretty entertaining too, a personal fave was about eyebrows! The advertisements were also all quite amusing, certainly the tampax one. I wish we’d have had time to flick through all of the magazines. Just another reason to go back, ey?
