Kardomah Chester

The Kardomah in Chester I think this now the building which houses Next. If you can confirm this, that would be great! Again if you have any memories drop me a line.


  1. When I was a small boy growing up in Chester in the 1950's (I live, now, in Los Angeles, California), my grandmother would take me to the Kardomah. I remember fondly the smell of coffee on a Saturday morning. The sound of china and crystal and silver knives, forks and spoons. The red leather seats. Great memory! Thanks!

  2. I also remember going to the old Kardomah in Easgate Street, Chester. The building now houses a branch of the Russell and Bromley shoe shop chain. The photograph shown here was taken in 1951 when Woolworths had their shop next door (one of the two entrances in Eastgate Street - the other, is where Next is now).
