Capuchino is the name of the new cafe in Cressida Road - it’s not a misspelling, but a play on the chemical formula for caffeine. The cafe has proved popular so far and, as well as offering friendly service, good coffee and snacks, books and games, there are also plants for sale. In the picture (click to enlarge) are the owner, Csaba, his mother, and our illustrious chair, Dorothy. A welcome addition to the neighbourhood and well worth a visit.
