It took me a while to find it.
Pictured above is the S&M Cafe, which was the mods' hangout from the classic rock film "Quadrophenia."
Formerly Alfredo's, it's located at 4-6 Essex Street in Islington and was tucked away down some back streets, a reasonable walk from the Angel tube station.
As it was a nice summer evening, I wanted to have a glass of something red sitting outside at one of the tables, but was told I would need to order dinner to sit outside. Dinner options revolved around sausage and mashed potatoes, so I passed.
So this is where Jimmy and his pals got lit, plotting against the rockers.
I snapped the picture then headed out of 1973 and back into 2009.
