Cosmo Restaurant

From London RIP "Cosmo, in Swiss Cottage, was a large restaurant in a parade of shops which was divided into two parts - a somewhat Spartan cafe and a much grander restaurant with a more ornate, possibly gilded interior and that defining restaurant feature, a sweet trolley."

The photo is from 1965.

2023: Camden New Journal (9 February 2023) reported that the restaurant first opened in 1937 but its heyday began in the 1950s when it was taken over by Adi and Herta Manheimer who had fled to London in the 1930s.
