"Harry spent the long sunny days exploring the shops and eating under the brightly coloured umbrellas outside cafés, where his fellow diners were showing one another their purchases […]'"

There were plenty of cafés at South Side, Diagon Alley, in London in the 1990s. There were tables outside them, where diners could have their meals.

In the summer of 1993, while Harry Potter was lodged at the Leaky Cauldron, he would eat in these cafés, listening to his fellow diners' conversations about their purchases.[1]
