With the removal of 12 layers of century old paint, some elbow grease and $150 000, the owners of Attendant managed to turn a smelly restroom into a funky lunchtime spot where sandwiches, cakes, breakfasts and espressos are served to hungry customers.

The wrought-iron entrance was spruced up but kept as close to its original look as possible. A small kitchen was fitted in the space below, along with a large counter where diners could be seated to enjoy their food. The green chairs were chosen to fit in with the original Victorian floor tiles.
