We’re also keeping our peepers peeled for sweet spots to enjoy a frothy cappuccino before, during and after a road trip and we recently stumbled upon a petrolhead’s paradise.
It’s called Rare Street Coffee and you can find it tucked up Rütistrasse in Rapperswil, Switzerland. Look out for the stylish black sign, vintage petrol pumps and array of retro motorcycles lazily parked up out front.
Inside, fans of vintage machinery are treated to some mighty fine specimens along with the potent aroma of freshly brewed coffee and still-warm pastries.
We’re talking an immaculate Porsche 935 ‘Moby Dick’, complete with Martini Racing livery, a stylish Norton Commando cafe racer and a Triumph Bonneville flat-tracker – the very machine that appeared in the achingly cool On Any Sunday – to name a few.
Proprietor of the ace cafe and owner of a brilliant name, Scott Dean, has gone to maximum effort to conserve but celebrate his customer’s rare and collectible cars.
Each car and bike is immortalised on the packets of sugar served with every hot drink, there is a giant studio photography book to flick through and some natty Rare Street Top Trumps cards are £10 to you, sir.
Above all else, the place serves a mean coffee (be prepared for the post-espresso kick in the head) and boasts a great atmosphere, which is especially welcoming to those who arrive on something interesting, vintage and worthy of a place on a Top Trump card.
