So I've seen a few seperate threads re: cafes in Sheffield. And I apologize if I am repeating known knowledge or if this is a repeat thread (did do a search).
Dana cafe: serve coffee from Forge coffee roasters. Consistent quality and i think they use the Invicta blend. Good snacks and atmosphere.
Whaletown coffee company: My current new favourite. Coffee quality comes first here before anything else. Baristas are very well informed. I believe they use a number of different blends and single origin beans from Cuppers Choice. Adola in particular was excellent....strong tastes of tangerine and strawberry to finish. A section for breads and pastries in the back. Great espresso brownie.
Aesthete Coffee: We buy our birthday cakes from here; best in town imo. Great brunch for eating (Greek/Cypriot) inspiration is heavy (and I love it).
Cawa coffee: Very popular coffee joint. Great selection of breads and snacks. I'm not sure which beans they're using but it's a tasty medium roast.
Nam Song/Previously 5 rivers coffee: Vietnamese inspired place with floor and chair seating. Good atmosphere. Food is far east inspired. You have your standard coffee as well as the quite tasty Vietnamese egg coffee.
Upshot espresso: Now closed but I believe maybe returning as Elm 2.0. Shame. Often felt they delivered the best tasting coffee of all the cafes.
Steam yard: Another favourite of mine. I believe they previous used square mile coffee beans but now forge. Again consistent with their coffee but excellent snacks. Good sitting in area (when that returns).
Cawa: Recently opened a hole in the wall type joint on the street.
200 degrees coffee: Not a fan of their beans. But the actual cafe is great. I love the sitting in set up. Knowledgeable baristas and an area set up with a grinder to give advice how best to grind their beans for different drink types.
Albie's: A nice little cafe in Sheffield's (imo) dying city centre. Decent bagels. Mixture of beans. Cuppers Choice. Dark Arts.
Chakra lounge: Sorta South Asian inspired. Good coffee, interesting lattes on offer. South Asian inspired meals.
Foundry Coffee Roasters: I believe they still have a cafe based at the Cutlery works. Need no introduction really. Rocko mountain appears to be a fave here and they have some excellent baristas working for them.
Workshop coffee company is new. Based in Steelyard (again new/work in progress). Good brownies, maybe I caught the barista on the wrong day, shot was overexpressed and milk underdone. The missus said it wasnt the norm for them; so I'll give them another try.
Grind Cafe: A kelham favourite. Known for their brunches. Great salads I must add. Decent coffee as well.
Depot Bakery: Sourdough everywhere. Bread and pastry specialist. Again good coffee and brunch options.
(Generally a must visit area of Sheffield for lovers of ... Well anything really).
Coffika (another branch in Meadowhall). Relaxed atmosphere for sitting in. Big indoor and some outdoor seating. Again, brunch options here are excellent. They tend to use a lighter roast for their coffee and I like their filter coffee.
Poms Kitchen: Vegan cafe. Extremely popular; mainly students. But good coffee options. Though, I wasn't so keen on the biscoffee latte. Jaffles, salads and brunches are excellent.
Made By Jonty: Love the brunch here. Good Veggie butty. Again consistent and good coffee.
Eve's kitchen/Handmade doughnuts: Best doughnuts in town and they just happen to do good coffee too.
Elly Joy/Olive and Joy: didn't realise Vegan doughnuts could be so good. In the summer, this place is killing it with its Froconut (coconut ice-cream); and to top it off, they add scoop sitting a top a doughnut sitting atop an iced latte.
Hopper: A new joint, open until late hours, I think there's a bar upstairs. I've heard some good things but haven't been yet.
Nam Song (they have another branch here; near Elly Joy in Dyson Place off Sharrowvale)
Braggazzi's: Sorta legendary really, especially in Sheffield coffee culture. Italian roast, Italian brunch, even sell Italian goods.
Forge Bakehouse: Massive fan of this place. Similar to Depot Bakery, with bread, pastries and brunch. Again the coffee is excellent.
Again many apologies if a thread exists. These are just my experiences and I'm happy to update as I go along.
