The Car Crowd Cafe

Recommended Posts

A new car cafe has opened in Edingley, near Southwell in Nottinghamshire.  By pure good fortune it is less than a mile away from my house (😊) so I have nipped down for a brew in the Elise three times now.  It's not a big venue but the cafe itself is like a cool man-cave with a massive picture of a Type 49 GP car on the wall, the coffee is good and all sorts of cars turn up. I like the place.

I have no connection to it, I just thought I would put up a post in case anyone local fancied calling in.

The cafe is an add-on to a classic car investment business, and some of their portfolio of cars are on display including a Renault 5 GT Turbo, Sierra Cosworth, Integra Type R, 205 Gti and so on. They also have a Lotus Omega that is having some paintwork done but should be on display in a copule of weeks.

Saturday between 9 and 11 currently the busiest times, but I think he hopes to open in the evenings during summer.

Love the 5GT Turbo in the photo had one from new way back in 1990 in Tungsten Grey. Fantastic car and still brings back great memories.

I Luv the lancia 😍 had one in my early twenty's

I had a couple of those as well Ray the last one suddenly sprouted rust all over it in a couple of weeks, and the first time I took my wife out the back window fell out brilliant cars though.

The Lancia in the pic is s Spider, and he has fitted a 2 litre volumex engine in it. It's remarkably rust-free

would the cafe be suitable for a breakfast stop? for one of the Notts/Newark runs?

 

 

Yes I think so Ray, I'm pretty sure they open Sunday morning now.

I was thinking this, but didn't want to step on Dean's toes.

Don't worry about that mate, feel free to organise something. You have a better handle on the roads round there than me!
