I like funny titles, outlandish names, and silly stuff. The Whim Wham Café ticks the box of silly names, so I was inclined to go in when I was strolling past like a normal pedestrian.
In need of a cool beverage, for it was an unusually warm afternoon The Whim Wham offer a surprisingly large number of cool drinks, and a vast array of hot ones. I opted for some water followed by a cuppa and marvelled at this rather strange little place.
I say odd, for the Whim Wham, looks more like a pub, and it makes me wonder whether it was one in previous years. Nonetheless it's a winner because it's cheap, cosy and they only serve local food. That deserves special recognition in my book.
The location is also quite important. There aren't really any other café's around when you're at this exact location, and I've been in many situations where you're parched and desperately seeking a liquid of any kind to ease your dry throat.
The Whim Wham isn't just perfectly located though, the staff are just so damn nice. They're friendly, chatty, and quite funny too. If you're alone, like I was, they will happily chit-chat until you depart. You can't help but want to go back with prices that surprise you and lovely – what I consider, landlords. I know they're café owners but it just doesn't look like a café.
It's open til 10pm too. I don't know many cafés that are open later than 7pm, and even then that's a damn find. I believe The Whim Wham had me in mind because I cannot tell you the amount of times I've been out late and hankered for a cup of hot chocolate. Looks like it's The Whim Wham Cafe to the rescue, and we all know about the endless powers of a good cup of tea.
