    • Hardcore UK fanatics would like this book. Almost a private joke type of thing, but I have to tell you I love the London Caffs. "Caffs' are cafe's or a weird version of our American diner - with traditional British 'diner' food. The interiors are either ugly or in my case totally fascinating. You haven't experienced the London experience until you either have breakfast or lunch at these places. Very 60's dear!

    • This book fills me with glee and sadness in equal measures. On the one hand, it's a loving attempt to catalogue so many places that are so often overlooked, on the other hand, many of them no longer exist since this book was published. Sue Barr's photographs are good, too.

    • A vision of a vanishing world. Want to visit as many as possible before they are gone.
