Lady Lavender


There is a new café by the market ground entrance to Clarendon Mall. The premises have been previously been occupied by a jewellers, a money-exchange office and a pawnbrokers.

  1. It's nicer with a café isn't it :)
    But I'm not sure if the lady wants coffee or a new ring ;)

    1. Not sure what this comment means. I have signage to indicate that I am a vintage tea rooms and my window display consists of celebration cakes and cupcakes.

  2. A cafe - how intriguing! That window doesn't make me think of a cafe, exactly - what is the skull doing there, for one thing? But it definitely is eye-catching - great find!

    1. The Skull is a handmade solid white chocolate skull.

  3. Certainly an unusual window for a cafe. Does it have many customers?

    1. I am not just a tea rooms, I also sell cupcakes and make celebration cakes. I have displayed the examples of my cupcakes and celebration cakes in my window. It's not an unusual window display for a celebration cake suppliers which is predominantly what I am.

  4. I thought at first that this was a home decor shop! Perhaps that woman is also a little confused?!

    1. I'm not confused at all Lesley. My window display is full of examples of the celebration cakes and cupcakes that are part of my business.

  5. I'd like to go inside and have a taste. I assume there are products with lavender flavoring on the menu. The window decor makes me think they have some delicious pastries too. Much nicer than a pawnbrokers or money exchange place.

    1. Thank you Sara, you'd be welcome to come inside and have a taste. I do serve Lavender shortbread, along with lots of different flavours of cupcakes. I'm pleased that you can see my window display is full of cakes. I have been surprised by some of the comments on the blog from people who don't seem to realise that the window has cakes in it. I'm not sure what else I can do with the window display, other than fill it with cakes, so that people realise what my business is.

  7. This is an eye-catching and unique cafe - I would be fooled yet upon further review, I do see a muffin as a tantalizing and tasty clue. I'd be certain to visit!

  8. I can see what some people mean with regard to the windows - it's not the contents of the window that's the problem, it's the style of the fittings. If you look properly it's obvious it's a cake shop, but to a casual passer by not so (many jewellers sell ornaments). If it's not practical/affordable/desirable to change the windows, maybe block off the little one with a vintage style poster on the inside advertising what you do?

    1. The window display has long since been updated in the 18 months since this photo was published.
