Have your say

I wonder how many of you can remember this cafe, above, although it looks as though it was more of a restaurant?

It appears to have been the place to be seen in town.

It was located in The Arcade and founded in 1893 by Albertolli & Sons.

The Arcade was found between Edinburgh Road and Commercial Road, Portsmouth.
