Time and money; the truth
Intrigued by the concept of Ziferblat, London’s first pay per minute café, we decided it was worth a visit ourselves!
At first glance the entrance seemed obscured, concealed from those not in the know. You cannot merely stumble across it therefore everyone who is inside chooses to spend their time coexisting with likeminded others. We were greeted in a most friendly manner before being introduced to the Ziferblat way. We scrawled our names and entry times on paper before fixing it to a tree of colourful bull dog clips; a holding place awaiting our exit to clock back out.
We were intrigued to find a fully equipped kitchen complete with selections of tea, an intricate coffee machine, homemade lemonade and even bread to toast with a selection of tasty spreads. I opted for an orange and lotus flower tea with a scrummy slice of chocolate cake. The kitchen also housed an interesting communal art project allowing visitors to donate unwanted fresh produce on the verge of spoiling for others to enjoy when stopping by. A community pin board was also in place allowing guests to share business cards, interesting thoughts and life related needs.
Chess was being played, laptops in use and people creating art in a relaxed atmosphere, all with a wonderful sense of belonging, just like coming home!
