- The Attendant Cafe in London

After more than fifty years of lying dormant, an abandoned underground Victorian toilet has been transformed into a unique new cafe called The Attendant. The former Victorian Gentleman's convenience is located in the heart of London's Fitzrovia and sees the original porcelain urinals, designed by Doulton & Co in 1890, turned into one long seating table. The old attendant's office has also been kept, complete with payment window, and has been turned into a little kitchen. Of course, the setting is nothing without the food and drink, so coffee beans have been sourced from The Caravan Roastery and a healthy range of meals are available for breakfast and lunch, including home baked bagels, pulled pork sandwiches, and wholesome roasted vegetable salads.
- Gross? Jesus, get over yourselves - it's porcelain, and has been sterilised. In any case, dear euwgrossers, after fifty years of not being used any germs would have been long dead. This is an amazing repurpose of the kind of beautifully designed spaces we're entirely incapable of recreating these days. Top fucking marks, The Attendant.

- I couldn't agree more with Tom! This building has a new purpose and I am sure any of our old house bathroom, WC could of been converted into part of the kitchen or bedroom. Does that gross you out and cross your mind? People are so narrow minded these days...
