Cafe Culture

It occurs to me that somebody could create a profile of a cafe like the one the beeb has posted here about the cafe in charlton park. I think the two cafes have a lot in common: they both function as hubs for a community, the same customers going in day after day after day. I find it interesting how small little eateries like that have the same function wherever you find a small urban group within a larger metropolis. Charlton still has the feel of a village to it, despite being part of greater London; it's community feels separate from that of the wider metropolis. Cafes like this are the pins which tack such communities-within-communities together. The bbc has done a photographic profile of one up in Clapham High street; I wonder if I could do something similar in charlton park.
