Does anyone know the opening times of this venture- everytime I go past early in the morning and late at night, its closed- wanna check it owt!

I know it closes at 6pm (apparently in the summer it will be open till 8pm) and when I left my flat this morning at about 7.50am it was open (or just opening up)

Intrigued by this thread I popped along today but it isn't open on Sundays so I have nothing to report. Although it was a lovely sunny day and everybody seemed happy and smiley.

Normally i tend to stay in the north of Borough but if there are more places opening like this i might be tempted to dander south a bit more often.

red bus - where's the usual border on your dandering ? Is it defined in physical, cultural or coffee quality terms....? Are we becoming a borough of Nobos and Sobos?

like red bus I was equally intrigued and popped along on Sunday but it was shut and I have been unable to find info about opening times anywhere. Their website is under construction and nada on the piece in the restaurants section here. Why are there so few caffs open on a Sunday around here??!!

jane - i suppose i am really a nobo (the second 'o' is important) and am more often to be found in the Lord Clyde / Southwark Tavern than the Garrison.

But i have started to venture a wee bit further south as of late and it is pretty interesting... Having lived in E&C and Camberwell I happily head down the Walworth Road, but wouldn't normally go South across the Old Kent Road.

My name is Peter and last tuesday my partner and I opened SoBo. It is, for both of us, a whole new adventure, neither of us having been involved in anything like it before. Our aim was to create a place with a warm, friendly atmosphere, where neighbours and friends can meet, chat, drink great coffee, and maybe even buy a work of ambitious aim for Tower Bridge Road perhaps, but worth a try we thought. We are still feeling our way, so please be patient with us while we fine tune the offer....which we can only do with feedback from our customers. So please continue to leave messages here and we will take note.
One mistake we made was to think there would not be much sunday trade. Yes, Rach and Red Bus, we were closed yesterday. Sorry you had a wasted trip. We have been a bit gobsmacked by the number of requests for us to open on Sunday, so from next week we will open 7 days a week. Our hours are monday - thursday 8am - 6pm. Friday 7am - 6pm (because of Bermondsey Market), Saturday 9am - 6pm, and sunday 10am - 4pm.
Thanks again for all the messages of support. It is greatly appreciated. And we hope you will find time to visit us soon.
