Sausage and Mash Cafe (or S&M Cafe as they proudly call themselves) is a throwback to the traditional greasy spoons of the 1940s and 50s.
The first S&M Cafe opened in 2002 in the former space of Alfredo’s Snack Bar, a classic cafe which closed down in 2000. S&M restored the space to its former glory, even keeping the original Alfredo’s signs in the window advertising ices and teas. The cafe has been used as a set for several movies (Quadrophenia and Mojo) and is a great place to get a full English breakfast (served all day), and enjoy the glorious formica and chrome surroundings.

As soon as the sun goes down and soft, ethereal moonlight descends over the crowded cityscape, workers call it a day and shuffle back to their apartment blocks. While the rest of the city settles down to sleep, a myriad of multi-colored-neon lights, flickering shop signs and glaring car headlights illuminate the night.
