The Ace Cafe

Mileage: Far

Temperature: Cool

No connection with coastal long distance walking at all but our visit to the Ace last night ranks very high on  my list of important moments so I’ve included it here.

Huge thanks go to Simon for ‘sharing the driving’ enabling me to take a heaterless VW to this petrolheads’ Mecca on a cold and frosty night. As you can see, we secured a prime position in front of the iconic venue (and I got a groovy new patch for the sleeve of my coat).


Strange to say, in this the ancestral home of cafe racing rockers, I was not alone wearing a parka. I kind of expected everyone to be in leathers. I guess all that old nonsense is long gone.

Oh, and I can recommend the chilli cheese chips.
