Coffee Bars In Sheffield In The 1950 And 60s

Recommended Posts

Used to go in the Chez Brion in Broomhill early 60's. I think it was run by a chap called Mooney.

Paid Chez Brion a visit one time in the sixties with a mate of mine with two hoity toity birds we were trying to impress!.It was a complete disaster they made it quite clear that we both came from the wrong side of the tracks and nooky was a nono,my pal put the top hat on it when he had a sudden stomach problem and dissapeared to the little boys room!.He was missing for a good while so I went to see what was wrong,I should have took a canary in a cage with me to check emmisions in the wc ,he was stuck there with no toilet paper so as a last resort he wiped his self with his scanties and flushed them!.He made me swear not to say anything to the ladies who I told anyway almost as soon as we sat back down which put a cowbosh on the evening which I had written off anyway,we escorted them home bade them farewell and never saw them again,a sad tale from my murky past!.

Before our Coronation Cafe days I used to visit a cafe on Meadow Street who,s name I forget,it was run by a friendly Caribean guy who was very popular,it was pretty busy most evenings!.This was 1959 I was ready for leaving school in those days there was not much for youngsters to do so cafes did pretty well!.I made friends there who were a couple of years older than me,they came from Parsons Cross one who was a pretty blonde girl who I started courting for a while until the age difference put her off as I was a tad naive for her!.I knew about the birds and bees but I had never put into practice,there were six of us altogether three boys two girls and we knocked around together for quite some time until I met a girl who knocked me for six and my adventures began!

Can anyone remember the name of the coffee bar/cafe on South Road at the bottom of Greenhow Street?

The Disc Jockey was my second home,we were all bike lads.

Mine too.....around '59 to '64. Really enjoyed being there, "racing" up and down London Rd, and visiting other coffee bars and pubs around Sheffield

HI Sedith,the "in n out" cafe was on the top of Howard street, just below a shop fabulously named "lift up your skirt and fly",I used to work on St Pauls Parade and we had liver,chips,peas and gravy sent across  at least three times per week,Barry used to work upstairs and his mum used to do all the cooking downstairs (cat remember her name) we used to have the crumble and custard afterwards, all home cooked, beautiful,happy memories!.

I remember my sister going regularly to a cafe called 'The mustard seed'. Can anyone tell me exactly where it was?
