Results of a quick Twitter poll
Earlier this week I took up @lordjlo‘s suggestion and asked people following @sheffieldblog on Twitter what they considered to be the best independent coffee shop in the city.
The results are below, with votes in indicated brackets. While the sample of the poll was small, they say that personal recommendations are the best so if you are out and about and fancy a coffee, these shops can’t be a bad place to start. And what’s more, I’m sure that these local businesses will appreciate your support.
Coffee Revolution*, Ecclesall Road and Students’ Union (2)
Cream, Broomhill (2)
PJ Taste, West Street (2)
Also voted for:
Alfie and Bella, Howard Street (1)
Cocoa, Ecclesall Road (1)
Cafe Gusto, Church Street (1)
Fusion, Arundel Street (1)
MoCo, West Street (1)
Nonna’s, Ecclesall Road (1)
Refresh, Broomhill (1)
Remo’s, Broomhill (1)
22a, Norfolk Row (1)
Does anyone disagree? Or are there any more that deserve a mention? It wouldn’t take much to nudge a of the coffee shop up the list with a few more votes.
*Obviously Coffee Revolution has more than one outlet so could be considered a chain, however it isn’t on the scale of Starbucks, Costa Coffee or Cafe Nero (yet)…
