Speedy’s Café is the real life restaurant that resides next door to the fictional 221b Baker Street on Sherlock. The folks that work there are quite active on Twitter, are very friendly and seem to have loved the explosion of popularity that the worldwide success of the show has brought to the doorstep of their shop. As is evidenced by the photo they shared last week from the first round of London location filming on Series 3.
Yeah, that’s star Benedict Cumberbatch and new (recurring?) cast member Amanda Abbington hanging out having a morning cuppa (though I suspect that’s actually coffee, she said, applying the deductive skills learned from watching too many hours of this show) in the real life version of the shop that’s been on the show already as itself. It’s a bit extra meta, maybe, but the picture’s still cute.
