As a lover of both photography and all things vintage, I am fascinated by seeing photographs of Margate in the past. Changes in technology are immediately apparent in these historical images, however, the differences in familiar streets and buildings provide a slightly strange feeling.
To those who are not local, Cliftonville is an area in the town of Margate, which, in recent years, has become run down and the site of considerable deprivation. Resort is a somewhat unlikely recent addition to this particular area yet it continues to work with residents as well as bringing those interested in the arts 'up the hill' from Margate itself.
Yama's quite simply makes the journey to the top end of Margate High Street more than worthwhile. This cafe combines a very informal, relaxed and friendly environment with the most delicious, fresh and affordable Thai food that I've ever had the pleasure of eating.
