      ... s own Wurlitzer juke box and was open only on Saturdays for breakfast coffee and croissants. A more contemporary but equally delicious Italian feed was had at Lola. We tended to have a large lunch and on some evenings made ourselves a salad at our flat in our hot pink cupboard kitchen and eaten on our tiny but perfectly formed terrazzo.
