Underground Victorian toilet turned caffe, London

The Attendant

I was walking through London in 2013 doing some visa paperwork when my husband and I stumbled upon this underground cafe. We were starving and had no idea that we were about to walk into a restored Victorian underground bathroom built in 1890. The toilet was abandoned for over fifty years until being turned into The Attendant cafe. The original porcelain urinals have been transformed into a long communal seating area that gives each individual their own nook to enjoy a cup of tea. They also kept the original attendant office & window which is now turned into a small kitchen. The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch. They whip up some pretty amazing sandwiches.

Address: 27a Foley Street, London W1W 6DY
