The Bridge Café

By ZenTony
The genius of this place is it's name. It's a café and nestles under a railway bridge in Shoreditch.
It is, though, a quite remarkable place. Every corner is filled with coffee artifacts and is quite unique. The guy who runs it, Ricco, is a coffee artisan and has an astonishing array of different coffee to sample. The downside is that he is the Basil Faulty of Cafes. Just look on TripAdvisor and you will see what I mean. I was with my son who knows him well so he was ok as long as I did not take a photo of him. Worth a visit even if you just poke your head inside.
(I previously uploaded these but I have changed the lead)

The tones are so mellow, warm and welcoming, and I love the reflected cafe sign. Equally, I can see this working in hard, contrasty b&w...
A good set, the versions complement each other, build up a picture of the whole.

What a fantastic place. A coffee version of God's Own Junkyard in Walthamstow.
Like the lead, and the rest help show the ambience of the place with its warm mellow lighting. And you managed to sneak a photo of Ricco?

I must pay a visit when I feel safe enough to travel into town on the train. Looks to be a great place for my daily caffeine fix! You have handled those beautiful warm tones so well. A great set, Tony.

You've captured the atmosphere very well here, Tony and I like the colours very much.

Oh, and thank you so much for your award, I've only just noticed.Wink

Thanks for the mono, and the pm - it works for me plus (and I do see this as a plus) it's a totally different picture. More about the light, less about the warm cosy feeling.
Excellent perspective.
