We’re a nation of coffee drinkers!
From a good ol’ fashioned scoop of instant granules to the more hi-tech and exotic espresso of an artisan café, whatever way you choose to get it there’s no denying coffee has become about as essential as any other part of our daily diet.
And with the rise of large coffee chains taking over high streets up and down the country, there’s no sign that our infatuation with the caffeinated beverage is going to die off anytime soon!
But even with all the available options, sometimes you might struggle in finding the perfect cup of pick-me-up, or at least one that will reach your high expectations.
These coffee shops in Glossop have proven a hit with countless customers and have shown that with the right amount of dedication, practice and a handful or two of good coffee beans you can create a lasting coffee experience that’ll keep people coming back for more.
So, here are just a few suggestions of cafes and coffee shops in Glossop you’ll want to check out:
Panaderia by Dowds
If you’re after a genuine artisan coffee shop experience right here in Glossop, you need not look any further than Panaderia by Dowds.
Formerly Dowds Restaurant, Panaderia offers patrons a number of freshly made products straight from their bakery including pastries, cakes, breads and more!
Boasting some of the most photogenic food produce in Glossop (as you can see from their TripAdvisor page here) a trip to Panaderia is a real feast for the eyes, as well as a feast in general.
But the food isn’t the only thing that looks delicious at Panaderia… The coffee is always presented with acute attention to detail and looks about as delightful as coffee can look. Often served in glass mugs, each of the individual layers of milk, froth and espresso create a rainbow of assorted coffee colours and add a little extra life to your latte!
Either this or you’ll find a unique and unexpected chocolate design sprinkled atop your cappuccino in traditional fashion.
Panaderia’s website boasts that their sourced coffee is “award winning” so you’ll have to pop in and sample a shot of espresso to see if it’s really worth the title. But judging by the slew of overwhelmingly positive reviews online, we can virtually guarantee you’ll leave impressed!
Who doesn’t love a hot cup o’Joe to warm them up on a chilly train journey?
Ideally situated right beside Glossop Train Station, Twig Coffee is your perfect stop-off point to pick up a long black Americano to accompany you on your train ride, or simply knock back a quick espresso shot to liven you up a little!
Plus, if you’re after a snack to go along with your hot drink they have a selection of cakes, sandwiches and more to eat in-house or to take away and set yourself up for the rest of the day.
Many commuters have reported stumbling across Twig completely by accident, which is always the best way to find your new favourite coffee shop!
And the vibe at Twig screams “independent” as every good independent coffee house should. Big enough to seat a few weary travellers but small enough not to be overbearing, if you’re a fan of cosy coffee shops you’ll feel right at home at Twig.
Oh, and their espresso game is always on-point. Nothing like a good double shot! One of the most well-known and well-liked coffee shops in Glossop.
