From a flat white to start your day to a post-lunch macchiato, there’s nothing like a perfectly-made cup of coffee to give you a morning or afternoon pick-me-up.
Gloucester is home to a selection of independent coffee shops that are perfect for getting your daily cup of Joe while flying the flag for local businesses, with SoGlos selecting six of the finest the city has to offer.
Get your coffee hit right in the heart of town at Jane’s Pantry’s outpost at King’s Walk, which reopened in November 2016 after an extensive refurbishment following a devastating fire in spring.
The local, independent and family-run business has been serving the community delicious baked goods for more than 30 years, with its retro-inspired King’s Walk branch the perfect opportunity to refuel with a caffeine fix after enjoying some retail therapy at King’s Walk Shopping Centre. The doorstep sandwiches a feast to behold too!
Whether you want to enjoy an afternoon latte and a slice of something sweet or the chance to relax over a leisurely brunch with friends, Gloucester’s Guru Coffee House on Brunswick Road offers a sanctuary for savouring a caffeine hit.
The independent Gloucester café serves a range of ethically-sourced coffees and caters for vegans with soya, almond and coconut milk alternatives. Its varied food menu includes everything from breakfast bites to burgers, in addition to an impressive selection of healthy eats and gluten-free goodies.
Just a stone’s throw from Gloucester Cathedral, Hubble Bubble is a family-run independent business serving a large selection of coffees, along with speciality teas and a varied menu spanning cakes, pastries and delicious hot dishes.
Offering a relaxed, rustic setting right in the heart of the city on College Street, Hubble Bubble is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee, an afternoon caffeine boost or a leisurely weekend brunch. We love the Instagram-friendly interiors too.
Championing sustainable, natural and organic produce, Peppers is an independent café located just off Gloucester’s Westgate Street on Bull Lane.
In fact, Peppers makes its own blend of coffee using the best organic and fairtrade beans, which are roasted locally, with a range of coffees to choose from and the chance to have skinny and soya milk alternatives. A gallery wall dedicated to local artists’ work is a nice touch too.
Certainly not your average motorway stop, Gloucester Services revolutionises the concept with its impressive café and farmshop located on both the Northbound and Southbound M5.
Whether you’re looking for an on-the-go cappuccino, a flat white or a simple Americano, the Quick Kitchen is perfect for picking up takeaways, while the Kitchen café area is ideal if you’ve got time to stop for coffee and a snack. If you’ve got kids, don’t miss the lovely wooden play area.
Located in Gloucester’s Kingsholm area, Roots Coffee and Community is a social enterprise that aims to reinvest profits in the local area and provide a welcoming place to socialise, in addition to hosting and running events.
The business’ ethos is to protect the environment, with the café serving ethically sourced farm-direct coffee, along with offering the chance to personalise your hot drink with its range of syrups.
