Spotted By Chance #2: Walls/Cafe #9/The Rutland Arms

September 27, 2010

I’ve seen some interesting things this week.

Several were on walls.

Beer mats, The Rutland

Currency, Cafe #9

Cafe #9 was a delight. In all my time in this area I’ve never been in there (it’s on Nether Edge Road) and now I actually feel bad for that. It has an amazing atmosphere – almost like a scandinavian coffee/hot chocolate house with its candles and round wooden tables. The stereo was playing trad/folk revival stuff (I couldn’t identify the singer) and there are homemade cakes. My friend said his cappuccino was good, though I just had a tea. The staff were very busy due to the Farmers Market outside, and service was beyond casual – I don’t think we would’ve been asked to pay had we not asked to ourselves. It wasn’t clear whether it was table or counter service but I don’t really think there are rules – just try and catch the staff! I’m hoping they might be interested in letting me run some folk gigs/sessions there so watch this space.

Candles and Folk Songs (heard and not seen), Cafe #9

Jokes, The Rutland

The Rutland Arms – everyone’s favourite pub-near-the-train-station…at least until the Sheffield Tap came along. Still, The Rutland offers a friendly bar, lovely staff, some great and varied hand-pulled ales, and a good little food menu. I had a Rutty Butty (not pronounceable without sounding like a posh twat unless you’re thoroughly Yorkshire-voice…unlike me) which was nice though not that hot for some reason. My friend had one of their cinnamon chocolate brownies and I can only assume from the noises she was making and the fact that she practically licked the plate clean that it was pretty good!

    Enjoyed these a lot – thanks, Rosie.

    The lack of a menu at Cafe #9 sometimes troubles me – maybe I’m just a bit uptight and traditional that way. But yeah, it’s a lovely relaxed place. Folk gigs there sound a great idea.
