Schoolhouse Modern

The interior of the Toad Hill Café (sadly defunct now) in Madison, Wisconsin; a former one-room schoolhouse converted to a retro-inspired coffeehouse with wi-fi. Old-fashioned light fixtures, roll-down maps of the world, childrens' books and toys, and a mixture of Eames chairs and classic institutional furniture. Problem was this café was on a side road far, far from anywhere people normally went, and I don't think they ever generated enough traffic to stay afloat. They've moved to another location in a regular commercial strip, according to Google Maps.
