The gradual easing of pandemic restrictions could mean a return to our favourite cafes before too long.
To get you in the mood for a brew or a bite to eat, we have compiled 9 photos from inside Hartlepool and East Durham’s cafes in times gone by.
Were you pictured in Cafe 177, Place In The Park, the Nip In cafe or Eugene’s in one of these archive photos?
How about Tea @ Hart or Springs?
We have these and more in our retro round-up.
