So if you had July in the when-will-Hawthorne’s-new-station-cafe-open? pool, you lost.
If you had August, or September, or October, or November, and probably December too, for the grand opening of the Train Delay Cafe, you lost.
But there is a nice tile floor in place, on which the soles of cafe baristas will trod, and coffee will spill, and scone crumbs will tumble.
So it certainly appears, for really the first time since the venture was announced over a year ago, that we will indeed get a new cafe in the long derelict Hawthorne train station space.
