For some reason this story just tickled my funny bone – the smallest coffee shop in Birmingham has just opened… inside a red telephone kiosk!
This isn’t quite as mad as it sounds, since it’s only the counter which is inside the box. Judging by the pictures in the article, the chap running the shop then puts trestle tables outside to make space for the coffee machines, cups, and pretty much everything else. I can’t help feeling this is cheating slightly since the bulk of the shop is outside the kiosk, not in it! But it’s still a novel idea, and a great way of using one of the iconic old red telephone boxes which might otherwise simply have been scrapped.
Hats off to charity Thinking Outside the Box for coming up with the idea. And next time you’re on Colmore Row in Brum, stop off and grab a coffee from what might just be the smallest coffee shop in the world!
