Café patron directs stranger to the toilet.

Sarah standing outside a cafe on a paved street. There are wooden benches alongside the window of the cafe with small tables in front of them.

On a recent trip to Kiel in Germany, my husband and I went into a little café for a coffee and cake. It was very quiet in there, with only 1 other customer.

I went to find the loo but the only door I could see opened into some sort of broom cupboard! The other customer must have guessed what I was looking for because she pointed me towards a door that was more or less behind the actual counter!

I was very grateful that she had worked out what I was doing and helped me find where to go 😊 .
