Mol’s Coffee House in the Cathedral Close of Exeter, county Devon, southwestern England.

   Mol’s Coffee House, (a half-timbred, quintessentially late Tudor structure) was opened in 1596 (the date below the crest on the building’s sign) and frequented by those Elizabethan Marauders Sir Francis Drake (sea captain, navigator, pirate, and politician) and Sir Walter Raleigh (writer, poet, courtier, spy, and explorer.) I think I need more knowledge of these fascinating fellows than I currently possess.
