Memories Of Cafe Monica

A Memory of Drayton.

Cafe Monica was the best place in the world for Heather and Trevor Eastes of Solent Road School. We went there every day for our lunch carrying our big boxes of veg waste to take home to our many guinea-pigs. We'd buy lardie cake, cottage loaves and meat pie - and sometimes I'd have a Viennese Whirl - all home -made and freshly baked by Monica Baker - then we'd deliver the meat pie to our mother as she got in from work at the SEB, feed the guinea-pigs, and catch the bus back to school.
Wally Baker was a beloved father figure to us and we were sad when he moved away to the golf club. We moved to Hove in 1962,
and Cafe Monica and the kindness of Monica and Wally Baker have remained a treasured memory.
