Excellent Cafe

This is the Excellent Cafe on Holderness Road. If your nearest competitor is a branch of that ubiquitous purveyor of burnt cow meat called McDonald then there is, I suppose, little point in being modest. Despite its name the local council rates this place as only average for hygiene and so on; and I'm afraid images of the fare on offer are not quite to my taste. I think I'll give it a miss.

The weekend in black and white is here.


  1. It looks a lot more interesting in black and white than in colour. I love the old brick and the decoration across the upper windows.

  2. Great BW shot of a neat building!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  3. How many of these old cafes are still in operation? I prefer to try them, but not at the expense of my my health. It's a tough choice. Cool BW photo regardless.

  4. It does have a better feel to it in black and white than I think it would be in colour.

  5. The big version of your shot is really quite full of life and this place photographs very well. I, too, am not a fan of eating out except for that very occasional occasion.

  6. I often give these places a try, they often do quite good coffee at a responsible price and poached egg on toast is way better for you then anything McDonald serves
