The Magical Teleporting Cafe

(This post was originally posted by Chewy on the Coronation Street Blog in March 2013.)

Many people will know that Roy's Rolls moved from Rosamund Street to Victoria Street back in 1999, but what many don't know was that it first sat where Prima Doner sits now.

I uncovered this when watching some old episodes, and noticed there was something a little off about the location of the cafe, as it's not usually straight across the road from the Bookies.

This would make Roy's Rolls on the new set, the fourth version of the cafe!

edited to add: According to a commenter on the original article, the cafe was indeed located where the Kebab shop is now when it was built in 1999 but moved 30 feet to the right when the studio did an overhaul and built the rest of Victoria Street in 2000 when they added what would soon be Sally's hardware shop and the butcher shop.
