Eating in a toilet in London at the Attendant

I have a love affair with food. I will happily graze all day and I love finding quirky places to, or ones based in incredible buildings.

I wee while ago (pun intended), a friend of mine told me about a place in London, which was a former public toilet, now converted into a cafe/coffee house.

It sounded fantastic, so I went to have a look.

Ladies and gentleman, I give you – The Attendant Cafe, London

The Attendant was a former public toilet, built at the end of the 1800’s, but lay abandoned for almost 50 years, before being transformed into what is now a fantastically quirky cafe and coffee bar.

Where is the Attendant? 

The Attendant is in central London; in between Soho and Marleybone. The best tube station to use is either Goodge Street or if you can handle it, the chaotic Oxford Circus station.

The Attendant is open from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday 9am-6pm Saturday and 10am-5.30pm on Sundays. There are no reservations taken, and it is a first come, first served basis. It is small (well, it was a former public toilet), but surprisingly, they’ve done well with how many people they can get in there.

The design is unique, yet they have retained a lot of features from the toilets themselves, and you will eat on a table with a urinal in front of you, which some people may find disturbing, but I found it really quirky, and was not once put off what I was eating.

I found that the food and drinks were reasonably priced (for London), and it tasted delicious.

There was a bit of toilet humour, as well as an actual toilet to use if you so needed it.

The Attendant is possibly one of the most unique places I have eaten, and I would highly recommend you stop in there; even if it is for a takeaway coffee (which they do), to get a feel and appreciation for it.

Where is the most unique place you’ve eaten on your travels?
