Tea for TARDIS?

In Glasgow, we have an enterprising lady who has turned the city’s iconic Police box into a zero-waste micro-cafe…

Laura Camerron, with the help of her dad, has transformed a TARDIS-esque Police box into the “Brew Box Coffee” on Argyle Street. Here you will be able to enjoy a daily selection of snacks with tea and coffee. I applaud this enterprise for its green credential – everything is made fresh, only enough for the day and wastage is non-existent with everything left over being biodegradable.

But the firm stand out – because they are striving to be a zero-waste business. Absolutely everything is hand packaged in biodegradable packaging, down to the fresh coffee pods which Laura then takes to her South Side allotment for composting.

I only wish this were closer to where I lived. I’d love to visit and experience the, errr, experience of street food served from a TARDIS! Laura told the Glasgow Evening Times:

“My hash tag is #weeplacebigtaste. I want to emphasise that I may be a wee place but I am not here for a wee while. I mean business when it comes to good local, handmade food and great tasting coffee and I’m going to do my damnedest to make sure Glasgow gets the best of me and the service they deserve.”

If you are of the Scottish persuasion or even just visiting – please go and say “Hello” and let us know what you think!

[UPDATE 23-Feb-16: Just did some research (i.e. stalking on Google Maps) and found that the newspaper lied! The TARDIS/Police Box is actually on WILSON STREET at the junction with GLASSFORD STREET – HERE. Why not look them up on Facebook, as well?]

Simon was born at an early age and has loved Doctor Who since even before then. Truth be told, it was those pesky giant maggots and the dandy in the frilly shirt that got him hooked... but it was the hair, teeth, eyes and scarf that made him stick around to this very day. When not writing for Kasterborous, Simon indulges in his passion for karate training and listening to (and writing about) some seriously heavy rock and metal music. Not at the same time, though, as that can lead to serious injury and/or lawsuits.
