The View - Inside and Out

It rained most of last week but in between the few showers we managed to take a few snaps of the place. Our bright orange umbrellas was donated to us by the local Concord West Pub (on the corner of Victoria Ave and Queen St) and it has definately helped in attracting a few customers.

We're trying to make an effort to change the artwork in the cafe each month, so for June, new paintings by Louis Ricaud was hung recently to liven up the place.
(all are available for sale if interested)
