Affiliation

Muggle world

Luchino Caffe[1] was an all-night Italian[2] café on Tottenham Court Road in Muggle London. It was briefly visited by Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger after they were forced to make a quick escape from Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour's wedding on the night of 1 August, 1997.

HistoryEdit

Main article: Luchino Caffe Duel
DH - Harry Potter battling inside the Cafe muggle restaurant
Harry Potter fires off a spell during the skirmish with Antonin Dolohov and Thorfinn Rowle.
StarstuffAdded by Starstuff

Harry, Hermione, and Ron fled there after the Burrow was attacked by Death Eaters, as the Ministry of Magic had just been taken over by Lord Voldemort. Hermione Granger inadvertently triggered the Taboo curse on Voldemort's name, enabling Death Eaters Antonin Dolohov and Thorfinn Rowle to track them down, but the Trio was able to fight them off and clear their memories. A brief skirmish was the result, and it left the café something of a mess, as a table was blown up by Dolohov's Expulso charm. However, the Trio cleaned up a bit before leaving. The waitress who worked there lost her memory of everything that had just happened, as did everyone else upon whom Hermione used the Obliviate charm.[3]

DescriptionEdit

"God, that's revolting."
—Ron describing the coffee

It was described as being small and shabby, with a "light layer of grease" on all the Formica-topped tables. Inside, a poster advertised the play Romeo and Juliet staged by the Carneiro Players at the Regency Playhouse in the summer of 1997. The waitress there served "foamy, greyish coffee" to Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
