A cup of coffee is the perfect way to while away time, catch up with friends and to warm you up on those colder days. In no particular order, here are some of Gloucester’s best coffee spots…

Hubble Bubble, 42-44 Westgate Street
Located just a stone’s throw away from the famous Gloucester Cathedral is Hubble Bubble, an independent, family-run cafe. After a day of retail therapy in the city, stop by and tuck into one of their hearty ciabattas, choose from a meat feast or a veggie alternative to be enjoyed alongside a delicious Jaffa Cake freakshake! On those colder days visit the quaint cafe and indulge in a cup of their deluxe hot chocolate or coffee variations.

Caffé Corretto, The Docks
Down at our beautiful Docks is a great Italian cafe, Caffé Corretto. Wake up early and enjoy this little gem for lovely, fresh baked croissant with an espresso to boost your energy ready for work! Perhaps a catch up with the girls is needed, Corretto have that covered, with a variety of Italian wines for you to choose from.

… in our defence we were really hungry and we love anything remotely Italian.

Lily’s Tearooms, 5a College Green
Lily’s is one of Gloucester’s best kept secrets, the family-run is tucked away in College Court surrounded by beautiful floral displays. Whether it’s a home-cooked breakfast or a relaxing afternoon tea you’re after, Lily’s is the place to be. After a catch up with friends why not pop over the road to the infamous Beatrix Potter Museum and treat yourself to a unique gift.

Situated on Westgate Street is The Crow’s Nest, a quaint cafe with a variety of delicious foods to choose from. Here there is something for everyone, from homemade pie to vegan flapjacks, best served alongside a warming hot chocolate!

On Toast, 15 Severn Road
Imagine enjoying a hearty sandwich whilst overlooking the beautiful docks, at On Toast you can. Gather friends and enjoy a peaceful stroll along the water’s edge and order something delicious, whether it’s a cheese and tomato or even a Mars bar toastie! On those colder days, pull up a seat and soak in the views with a cup of coffee to hand or a hot chocolate.

Knobbly Cob, Westgate Street
The infamous Knobbly Cob has been around for just over 20 years and has become one of the city’s go-to cafe’s for a quick yet tasty lunch! This is the perfect pit-stop for your lunch break, you’ll be spoilt for choice with their extensive menu from deli sandwiches to jacket potatoes and salad boxes. However, if you have a meeting coming up or a function you are organising, keep this cafe in mind as they also offer a buffet menu.
