An enterprising neighbor aiming to bring his local community together has opened one of the UK's smallest cafes - in his 3 feet by 6 feet GARAGE.

Rob Savage, 51, sells cakes, coffees and cups of tea from his tiny garage which he converted during the lockdown.

Named '3ft 6' after it's dimensions, Rob claims the eaterie is one of the smallest in the UK.

Despite it's compact size, the cafe in Redfield, Bristol, does a roaring trade and even offers seating on the paths outside his terraced home.

Open on weekends between 10 A.M.-3 p.M. for the moment, Rob built the tiny cafe out of his garage that he uses as a workshop with limited resources.

Rob, who is also an artist and designer, said: "It's very much about being a neighborhood cafe.

"I made it in response to a demand that became apparent during lockdown where basically there was nothing around.

"I realized that actually there was something lacking in the area for the local community.

"We came up with this idea of making a small takeaway coffee and cake place for the neighborhood."

The cafe took around a year to construct, opening in March 2022, and is described as being a "little bit like tetris" behind the counter.

Rob said: "I've been here for nearly 20 years and I've seen a massive change in people caring.

"There's a real sense of community, a real sense of neighborhood - and hopefully this adds to it."
