Hello
I am tracing my family tree (surprise surprise) and I know that my great grand parents Nicola(s) and Maria Esposti ran a coffee shop on Penarth Road in the early 1900's with anther member of the family Carey Nardini. I would love to know what the coffee shop was called or if there is a way of finding out.
Thanks to anyone who can help . Louise

1901 census shows this:

Reference RG13, Piece 4987, Folio 154, Page 12
176 Penarth Road, Canton, Cardiff

Esposti, Nicola  Head  M  29  Refreshment Shop Keeper  b Italy, Italian subject
Esposti, Maria  Wife  F  30  b Italy
Esposti, Teresa  Daughter  F  5  b Cardiff
Esposti, Joseph  Son  M  4  b Cardiff
Esposti, Louis  Son  M  2  b Cardiff
Esposti, Charles  Son  M  3 months  b Cardiff
Nardina, Carey  Sister-in-Law  F  34  Assistant shopkeeper  b Italy

There is no name of the shop, just the address!
Also "Coffee Shop" is written on the census in addition to the description above.

Maybe a birth certificate of one of the children may shed further light on the address
 
June 1899 Esposti  Lewis     Cardiff  11a 415   
 
Mar 1901 Esposti  Charlie     Cardiff  11a 393   

PS. Seem to be a few Esposti births in Cardiff between 1895 and 1908

Hello yes I have almost all of the family tree of the Esposti family (which has led to finding long lost cousins!) but I have lots of memories of my father telling me all about his grandparents coffee shop except for its name! (Charlie born in 1901 was my grand father) but as my father was born in 1925 I don't know if the coffee shop came later or even how long they had it! Thanks anyway

Historical Directories has 2 mentions

Bennetts Business Directory 1900 describes N Esposti as "Ice Cream Maker" at 176 Penarth Rd.

The Cardiff Directory 1901 lists him amongst private residents - no reference to the business - at 176 Penarth Rd.

Thank you  for your help what a shame I never thought to ask my father such a simple question - maybe it was just "Esposti's"!

Hi, this is Carl Esposti. I live in Los Angeles. My Father was Thomas Derek Esposti, brother of Ronald Esposti - both from Cardiff (Penarth rings a bell!) - son of Thomas Esposti and Nelly Esposti. My mother (*) has a cousin who has a lot of information about our family tree.

Hello
 Well another cousin we are all over the place! Was Thomas another son of Nicolas and Maria? I may know of your mothers cousin as I think we are several  researching the family and  thanks to people like her I have some lovely photos of Nicolas and Maria.
