Regular readers will know that I am loyal to my local branch of the Costa coffee chain. A fair few photos of their cups have graced the pages of this blog over the years.
My local branch is ideally situated between school and the shopping centre. The space is large, bright and airy. The staff know me. They have a customer loyalty scheme. They are cheaper than the ubiquitous American chain that is invading every British High Street. It's where I trained The Boy Child in how to behave in a not-specifically-for-children space.
You get the idea.
But that's not to say I'm not interested in ringing the changes every now and again.
And on my list to visit is Curators Coffee.
I read a non-professional, not paid for review here
and I have to confess that what drew me in was the decor.
All funky design and light and shade.
It's nothing short of fabulous and a photographer's dream.
Fancy joining me? My treat.
Have you ever visited an independent store/cafe based purely on its decor alone?
