Cafe Albert is unusual in that it opens early and stays open late. During the week you can drop in anytime between 7am and 1am. A café in the true sense of the word, serving coffee, cake and not much else, it nevertheless attracts a young post-clubbing crowd at the weekends.
rnFood is served almost until closing and chairs with blankets strewn across them are placed outside, so that customers spill out onto the street late into the night. The café is a hub of activity at this time, tempting in passers-by with promises of a better class of snack than the nearby Burger King.
rnOlder party-goers may feel a little out of place, and don’t expect a quiet cup of coffee whatever the time of day. Groups of friends meet here to shout their night’s gossip to each other, and they don’t mind who hears it.
