LONDON — Two of London’s famous red telephone boxes have been reborn as a coffee stall, and the owners say the lack of inside space that was a drawback when they opened a week before lockdown could now be an asset in a socially distanced capital. Couple Loreinis Hernandez and Sean Rafferty said Amar Cafe, which operated out of two adjacent disused phone boxes in west London, was trading for just a week before the city shut down at the end of March due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic. The easing of restrictions this week prompted them to reopen the café, which specializes in coffee from Hernandez’s native Colombia. “It was always going to be takeaways and maybe it might be better now for us because people would prefer to be outside, sitting in the park.” While stocks are good for a few weeks, at least, Rafferty and Hernandez are hopeful that the lockdown restrictions in the South American country do not prevent future deliveries. — Reuters
