‘The only place to buy Guinness cake in Sheffield’
A few months ago I asked @sheffieldblog Twitter followers where the best independent coffee shop was to be found in Sheffield. The responses included many of the popular outlets, although Bragazzis wasn’t mentioned which surprised me a little, as I rate that as one of the best.
You might have seen it mentioned in last week’s Sheffield Telegraph, and I would definitely recommend a visit. The place has a lovely feel to it, with bookcases lining the walls, proper old furniture and a collection of musical instruments in the corner which customers can play if they want. In fact, the atmosphere reminds me a bit of both Cocoa and Bragazzis.
The drinks are good – excellent coffee and a range of teas including sweet chilli – and the Guinness cake is amazing. The rest of the homemade food menu looks tasty, with eggs sourced locally from hens owned by friends of proprietors Sally and Pete.
You’ll get a warm welcome from the owners and they have plans for plenty of events including jukebox Sundays, open mic poetry and prose nights, bistro evenings and there is currently a competition to design the sign for their toilet door. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for what is going on.
Oh, and it is open until 8pm during the week and 10:30pm on a Saturday so offers a cosy alternative to the pub.
