The café is near the pier used by the ferry to Fleetwood. There used to be a railway line to here, with a short branch to a mine. The railway was mainly used for goods but passengers were carried until 1930, and the line closed in stages over the following decades. The café is said by a number of people to be a much altered development of the former station building. Certainly it is in the right spot but the original building was single storey, and looked very different to the current one. There is a photo on the flickr site showing the single storey former station building in the 1970's in use as the Knott End Cafe. So either it was massively reconstructed and extended, with an extra floor added, or perhaps more likely was replaced by a new building, which is what we see today.
