Of all the fates that could befall a subterranean Victorian urinal, this has to be about the best outcome imaginable. A boutique coffee, lunch and cake place ...
It's called 'The Attendant' (which is a lot more lofty than many of the names that must have been touted). It's in London's Fitzrovia, very handy for BBC staff at nearby Broadcasting House. To be precise, it's on Foley Street at the junction with Great Tichfield Street. And it's not just the tiling that's original. The stalls and cisterns are all still in place ...
In case you are wondering, my cappuccino and carrot cake was good - the service is friendly - the place is well patronised. I'll certainly go again. Perhaps see you there!
