Where else can I be?

The Summer Scavenger Hunt devised by Rinda ended today and I had completed it a couple of weeks ago but.... BUT, yesterday we went to the free book shop, which has closed now, and then for a little ride up to Morrisons for tea.
Her in Newport there is a pub called The Handpost. This has, in turn, given the name to the area that surrounds the pub. While we paused at the traffic lights by the pub we chuckled over the fact that the cafe in the row of shops was called That Cafe. and decided that it was a great name because when someone says meet me up the Handpost you can say "Oh yes, let's meet in That Cafe" and you will be actually giving the name. Well it made us laugh.
I was craning my neck around to try and get a picture of the sign but there was a car in the way and then I spotted the notice above the door
Now that made me laugh but I did have time to snap it as the lights changed and we were underway again.

That sign is classic! I love it. It's so simple, but says it all!

Does make you wonder why the sign is there, though? Good spot!

That's great! We have a cafe here actually called "The Other Place"

Miriam said...

Too funny. It reminds me of 'The shop around the corner'

Great sign ... And I like the cafe name as well. Very clever, whoever thought of it.
