No, there wasn't a cafe opposite the tavern in our day.  When my family moved there in 1948, there was a workman's cafe a shop or two down from Allneeds but for most of my life on Downham, there wasn't a cafe to be found.

I used the cafe opposite the Downham Tavern every day, instead of school dinners, and he use to sell us kids a cigie for 2 pence, I could just make chips and a sausage and a fag for school dinner money. I seem to remember it was in the left hand side looking from the tavern.

Did they turn that into a launderette?
