Cafe du Coin, St Malo-The doll bar!

Just the best place I have ever had a drink-though maybe not the best to make me sociable, as I spent the whole time taking photos and staring around! This bar is decorated with dolls, many, many dolls. Collections within the collection-a line of Joan d'Arc puppets, a shelf of Mexican dolls, a group of travellers in the desert, ships, circus imagery, a stuffed albatross (coincidentally I also saw a stuffed albatross in Devon), doll arms and legs as the beer taps, swings for bar stools, the most enormous art deco chandelier. Just amazing. And made my doll collection look modest and restrained.















A little piece of England!

Love it!

What an extraordinary and fascinating place. I must confess I would feel a little unnerved by so many dolls.

What a fantastically fabulous place - I am surprised that you managed to leave it ...... I could see you living out your days perched on a stool in the corner, looking after the dolls in return for your keep!!

Love the doll on the trapeze, Moulin-Rouge-style! Must have been like going to heaven for you. What a nightmare for dusting...

Wow! No wonder you spent the evening taking pictures and looking around. That is one fantastic place. It must have taken years and years to put it all together.
