Coffee, p(o)lease!

One of many old police boxes that were converted into little coffee shops. They were originally built as mini police stations, often with a phone on the outside for members of the public to contact the police. In England they're usually blue but in Scotland they're often red.

What a lovely scene to imagine stepping into - a sunny day, summer clothes, historic and colorful structure, and most of all, coffee. 8^)

In Glasgow most of our police box/coffee booths are blue and Tardis-shaped :) I'll have to take a picture one day, I've never featured them on my blog.

Surely the sign of an advanced society-coffee shops replacing police boxes!

Oh that's really cute! :)

Near where I live someone turned a wheel house into a coffee shop. Original - and the coffee is very good too. :)
