Aldershot and Farnham

October 6, 2021

A lovely warm sunny day.

First Aldershot

I wished to eat at Indonesian street food restaurant. Closed. As far as I can tell, closed end of lockdown last year and has never re-opened. I inquired of a local massage parlour. They claimed it was opon. I let them know it was closed.

A sign welcoming to Aldershot does not make Aldershot any the more welcoming. Deserted streets, boarded up shops.

Lower part of the town centre demolished for an ugly development. I lacked the time to walk down and investigate further.

Lunch at Caffe Macchiato. It was not very good.

Ice cream parlour him coffee shop has closed. No surprise, the only surprise it lasted as long as it did. A pity as the ambience and decour was pleasant. The coffee was not good. The mood point if exceĺent coffee would have made a different where locals lack taste, a town centre infamous for disgusting junk food. Was only busy Saturday for ice cream. An owner who lacked people skills did not help.

For coffee, nowhere in Aldershot. Visit Farnham or Guildford.

On to Farnham

Called at Coffee Gems, the only coffee roastery worth knowing about in Surrey.

Then on to the coffee shop Electric Cycle Cafe that has taken over what was Krema.

Poorly named, as not a cafe, a coffee shop serving specialty coffee.

A speciality coffee shop selling electric cycles or a cycle shop serving speciality coffee. Take your pick.
