There was some furniture left over from the Richmond? All I remember seeing were Adidas for sale. I wonder what happened to those beautiful chairs and tables. I'd like to have bought some. The Richmond was a really classic cafe. It's even mentioned in Graham Green's novel the Honourary Consul.I don't hold out any hope that it will be temporary: look what happened to Cafe Richmond. I used to go there from time to time The city had required the new owners to leave some vestiges of the old place so I called in after the conversion to see what they had done. I only did it once for, who wants to go into a retail store to look at some old tables and chairs? It wouldn't surprise me if even that little corner gets swept away - if it hasn't been swept away already. And don't mention Cafe Retiro!
Cafe Retiro? In the station? Have they ruined that too? The station itself is in better shape these days.
What's happened to the Ideal? It was in dreadful condition over twenty years ago but it was still vaguely functioning as a confiteria. Then it started to put on tango shows.
