I was, unusually, walking from Walworth Road to the Elephant, and I noticed a few more units open in Elephant Road. In particular there was a rather cute little coffee bar/cafe called something like 'Chatica' which looked quite fun. Anyone been there?
I agree Chavender, Elephant Road is acquiring a rather lively atmosphere, having always been some sort of backwater cut through, with nothing but warehouses and garages....havent tried the coffee shop...will do so!
I noticed it too but haven't tried yet. I think it did even have a small table on the outside. I think there is also a new hairdresser near it. Both have fully glazed fronts and looking good when dashing past.
I also just noticed it too when I went to see the Elefest last month. I tried to go for empanadas last Sunday at 5pm but it was aleady closed, damn. There is Chatica, a small bakery/cafe sort of place and next to it there is a big restaurant going all the way down under the arches. Maybe we could organise a SE1 social dinner there...
What would be great would be to have a 'Latin American business awareness day' (with a better title, obviously) - I do feel self conscious going into some of them as I don't know what they sell and they are in very deep units.
