Number 17 Chancery Lane was great. The pancakes were fantastic. I loved the Oyster and Cheese ones.
Large coffee cups. the owner was a skinny guy who always wore a turtle neck and had a well trimmed beard.
The urban legend was that it had been a brothel

Now someone's said it, I agree, it was Leo'sCoffee House originally, then changed to Sargeant Peppers later.
In the Square, we used to buy plastic cups from Krispy Chips (by the United Service pub) to 'pre-load' with our McWilliams port LOL. The dodgy one was The Cat's Pyjamas (burger bar) 'round the other side by Warners - was open the latest, but used to be frequented by some dodgies late at night.
retroqueen1 - totally get the hairspray comment! - Black can 'Sillhouette'

Was the doghouse not there at that time?

retroqueen1, Dec 29, 3:09am
Yes I went through a large can a week of that stuff

the dog house great place, but hey I.m not dodgy.

There used to be a hamburger place in Colombo street by Tuam street, they used to be good.

Yep, the Doghouse was the main one, but the Cats Pyjamas was a little fish and chip place right next door. Actually, both enjoyed a 'different' clientele than the other side of the Square LOL.

Anyone else remember the Miami Vice style gay bar 'Eden' up on the second or third floor of the United Services pub? Lots of mirrors, pastels and plants. Such a bizarre venue, but so much fun (and wine coolers) had there!

There used to be a quaint little tearoom beside the old cinerama picture theatre in Worcester street east back in 1980's as the old no. 10 new Brighton bus (via keys road) used to stop right outside it (across the street from tramway lane)

Leo's coffee lounge was right across the stairwell from the central city medical centre
