Double shot in the arm for New Cross

Transpontine has spotted that two new cafes are on their way in New Cross.

The first is "Cafe 465", which replaces "Come the Revolution". The sign on the front door pointedly explains that the cafe is "under new management".

The second is The Cottage Project, at 106 New Cross Road. The renovation of the defunct tandoori restaurant is as ambitious as their business model. The Cottage Project will combine a cafe, with a gallery (natch), shop, cottage industry and community projects. A bit like Come the Revolution was intended to do, but without the estate agency tacked on.
