This month one of the independent cafe’s Spoke and Co in our neighbourhood. closed. A real community hub and conveiniently opposite the school for a post-school run coffee hit / mega-breakfast.
It brought home how important it is to use your local independent shops that bring so much to the local community and economy.
But as the big chain restaurants have struggled in our main Shopping precinct – The Victoria Centre – Independent Nottingham Street Food moved in offering an alternative pop-up residencies for local independents at weekends
Now for a weekday treat – Nottingham Coffee Club is Open from 8am Monday to Saturday for 200 Degrees Coffee – Roast House they also stock local independents Mumma G’s Bakery, Bluebird Tea Co., Doughnotts, The Bakehouse, Ugly Bread Bakery
I tried to go a few weeks ago but they had been totally cleared out of supplies by Black Friday weekend shoppers. This time Issy and I popped in as a reward after the always horredous new shoe buying trip. I needed a hit of caffeine and Issy had definitely earned a hit of sugar in the form of a cinammon danish the size of her head.
The coffee was great, the danish delicious , I was amazed she didn’t go for a massive chocolate or jam number.
The only thing to note is they don’t take cash so don’t forget your debit/credit card.
