police box coffe shop at night

Some of the old police boxes in Edinburgh have been sold and converted to coffee shops, like this one at the top of Middle Meadow Walk, next to the University and old Royal Infirmary.

 

Update: I read in the local paper that this is indeed a fascimile of an old Edinburgh Police Box set on wheels which can be moved. The operator had it built and sits it right next to a real Police Box converted into a coffee/juice bar, presumably they are arch rivals. Quite a few of the old boxes have been converted into wee coffee kiosks around the city, the Edinburgh design being a bit bigger than the traditional 'TARDIS' style Police Box probably makes it handy for that kind of thing
