Does anyone have any information on "The Old Curiousity Cafe" situated in Chalfont St Peter possibly in the 1930s/1940s? I do not have the full address and would be grateful for any help :)

I'm fairly certain, so is the other half, that it was the cafe opposite Church Lane that became Cross Keys later on run by the Moses.
 
It is certainly mentioned in Cats & Kittens Magazine in 1950!

Wasn't it the cafe that was in what is now Buckingham Parade? You had to step down into it, it had large bow windows a bit like the Old Curiousity Shop in the Dickens novel.
