Great Spots to Grab a Coffee in Notts


We’re spoilt for choice for places to get a caffeine fix in the city and county, so here are just a few of our favourite independent bean brewers who we think make Notts a coffee capital!

200 Degrees Coffee

Nottingham coffee royalty since their Market Square shop opened in 2014, 200 degrees have since opened a second branch on Carrington Street and they even share their expertise at their Barista school – you’ll never have to suffer a substandard coffee again!


Cartwheel Cafe and Roastery

Cartwheel believe ethical production is key to producing a great cup. They take care when sourcing their coffee and their beans are roasted in house by their knowledgeable baristas. Drink in their slick new cafe or buy a bag of beans to takeaway for home brewing.



Nottingham’s own UK Best Deli 2012/13 winners know a thing or two about the perfect coffee…



Delicious coffee isn’t hard to find in the heart of independent Nottingham with the Hartley’s cow outside their Hockley shop!


Strays Coffee Shop

From Jazz Saturdays to a tapas menu, there’s lots of good thing happening at Stray’s in Newark… and coffee is one of them.


Alfresco Caffè

Visit Alfresco’s cafes in Southwell and West Bridgford for a taste of proper Italian coffee in Nottinghamshire.



Stop for fresh coffee and a bite to eat as you shop on the second floor of Hockley’s Dezigne store.


Warsaw Diner

Warsaw Diner really know how to do a morning pick me up – all American pancakes, full English and, of course, bottomless coffee.


The Refectory

For coffee with a view, it doesn’t get much better than a cup in grounds of the magnificent Southwell Minster.



Sobar is the East Midlands’ first alcohol-free cafe bar and day or night, their coffee is second to none.
