Does turning an old bus into a coffee shop seem like a mission impossible to you? Most people would have no idea what to do with a really run down bus.

Transform a old bus in a cafeteria, does this seem like a mission impossible? Most people would have no idea what to do with a really run down bus.

But Aleah, owner of the Wild Thyme Coffee House of Saturnia Island, in British Columbia, is a voice out of the chorus. In 2012 in Leyland he found a vintage double-decker bus in a landfill.

It was built in 1963 and used as a means of public transportation until 1976. In 1978, the bus was the Canadian team's transportation mascot at the Commonwealth Games in Alberta. In this run-down bus with broken windows empty one huge potential.

After five months of hard work, Aleah managed to transform this piece of history in the Wild Thyme Coffee House. The coffee shop serves lunch and breakfast daily, has a bar and serves only fair trade coffee.

The café serves rich dishes prepared with local ingredients, including fresh mixed salads complete with floral decorations and fruit salads. A little corner of paradise born from creative recycling. The images allow us to follow the extraordinary transformation of the bus into a coffee shop.



Incredible but true!
