Rochester's Back Out To Lunch.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your kind votes and comments and lovely awards and mod on my previous upload, all very much appreciated, thank you.

Well, Rochester is finally shaking off the dust of lockdown with many local businesses and restaurant's re-opening and, customers cautiously taking those first steps into something like the, so called, new normal. V3 is the newly opened; Cacio & Pepe (Cheese and pepper) next door to the Cafe' Nucleous featured in the lead image and V1 and V2.
Another similar set will follow on Thursday: (Staying Safe.)

All the best to all and take care out there.

Excellent work John - really cheered me up this morning. So, my first UA of the day.

Super duper award winning stuff!

A really feel good set of photos. Much needed these days.

Love the lead

V4 having her just off centre makes all the difference

V8 is a classic! If it were me I would send that photo straight to Costa's Marketing department

Well done!

PS - Although has got me thinking ... whose is the third drink in the lead image? Yours? GrinGrin

Lovely set not only because people are starting to enjoy what we took for granted before.
I have been in both Cafe Nucleus (one in Chatham I think) and the indoor one with the courtyard at the back-
wonderful places.
There are some lovely restaurants and coffee shops in Rochester.
