Cafes around the Old Market Square

Recommended Posts

Foodies are the most boring people on the planet, or so I find, along with people who are obsessed with money and possessions. As long as I have sufficient of both to get by, I can't see the point in drooling over them.

Jill, I understand where you are coming from on foodies and I have to agree with you , but didn't you use to have a passion years ago for visiting the Pythagoras Tearoom on Gregory Boulevard.

Indeed I did not, young Trogg!

 

Despite the triangular sandwiches a certain demented Irish maths teacher used to draw on the board, whilst droning on about trigger and Al Gebra, the Pytagoras Tearoom was not somewhere I had any wish to visit. Ever. I think it also offered pie...which flavour I never did manage to establish. Too busy dodging the chalk missiles!

My Gran worked there in the late 50`s and early 60`s and I used to spend the occasional day there during school holidays.

Your picture of the inside of the Buol cafe reminded me of a similar Victorian/Edwardian cafe we visited near Pontycyslite North Wales

Love the fire surround with its overmantle and the cornice. Elegance and workmanship not found today!

Not forgetting the highly polished creaky wooden floorboards

Edited to add: the coffee and walnut cake was to die for
