Your guide to Sheffield's coffee shops

Posted on January 26, 2024

We all love a good bit of caffeine, don’t we? It’s basically the equivalent of an IV drip for most students. Sheffield is blessed with some absolutely lovely coffee shops. From cosy, small rooms with only three selections to ones which are practically restaurants, Sheffield is a good place for any coffee lover (or you Tea fans, I know you are here!). 

We have created a guide to some of our favourite Sheffield coffee shops, so you know where best to grab a hot drink when you are living here! 


Nam Song 

Meaning “5 Rivers” in Vietnamese, Nam Song is a beautiful Sheffield ode to Vietnam. Founded after a year aboard travelling across Asia, Nam Song has cemented it's place as the most unique of Sheffield's coffee shops.. Featuring a whole menu of Vietnamese-inspired food, including Pho and Bánh Mí, as well a large array of coffees and teas and even some Pandan Cake. As well as the amazing food and drink on offer, Nam Song just looks great. Orange walls with cool lighting and vintage Vietnamese posters adorning the walls, there is even a section where you can sit on the floor (without shoes, don’t mucky up that carpet!). Nam Song is located in the heart of Broomhill, so it’s dead easy to get too.

Steam Yard 

Located along one of Sheffield’s liveliest independent districts, Division Street, right in the heart of town, Steam Yard is definitely one of the cooler places in Sheffield, and one of it's best coffee shops. With a great atmosphere and fantastic outdoor seating area, it’s regarded as one of the best coffee places in town. Thanks to the high-quality coffee and delicious baked goods on offer at Steam Yard, it is one of the most popular places in Sheffield, and a perfect places to nip in for a take-away coffee, or to relax for an hour inside with a drink and a cake.

Tamper 

Tamper Coffee, as a whole, is an attempt to bring a little slice of the Kiwi café culture to the heart of Sheffield. Tamper is all about ensuring that New Zealand experience, through its beautiful interior, featuring a rustic and quirky environment, as well as fresh seasonal food, exceptional service and coffee from fellow New Zealanders Ozone Coffee Rosters. Tamper can be found in the historic Sellers Wheel building on Arundel Street, in the heart of Sheffield’s Culture and Industrial Quarter. Tamper is also only two minutes from WaterBear’s Sheffield campus, making it absolutely ideal for a midday coffee run!

Coffika 

Coffika, first and foremost, does the best pancakes in Sheffield. To be honest, that could be the whole review of it. But that wouldn’t be a good review so I will write a bit more. Located on Eccey Road, Coffika is a bit of a rising star amongst hospitality places in Sheffield, with it becoming more popular by the day. A great selection of coffee, tea and especially food makes Coffika a favourite coffee shop amongst most students, and it has a lovely outside seating area for those more sunny days.

Sheffield is such a great city when it comes to coffee shops, and these are but a small selection of the countless amazing cafes in Sheffield.
