Tina, we salute you
I am thrilled to tell you about my first cafe, which is a real gem. I was drawn to ‘Tina, we salute you’ http://tinawesaluteyou.com/ when I opened Foursquare to see what places were listed locally and was intrigued by its name. It was also very handy, just right for a quick lunch time visit.
The cafe has a lovely relaxed feel about it, and there is a huge table with eight seats which reminded me of a family breakfast table with pots of jam and marmalade in the middle. Coffee was great and I indulged in a piece of white chocolate and raspberry tart which was delicious. There is an amazing, original loyalty scheme which you must experience.
The best thing, however, is the art. Every eight weeks, the walls are whitewashed and a local artist decorates the walls however they choose. The latest art is by Edd Bagenal and is brilliant.
And the name? Tina was the name of a woman, painted by JH Lynch. More about him here http://www.jhlynch.org/
