Independent Coffee Shop and Cafe based within Middlesbrough Town Hall

Local & Independent

We pride ourselves on using the freshest, and highest quality ingredients, from a carefully selected bunch of local suppliers.

Our coffee is roasted just down the road in Northallerton by speciality coffee roasters Rounton. Our teas are all single-origin and organic and are supplied by Storm Tea based in Newcastle. Acorn Dairy, also just down the road, in Darlington, supply us with their wonderful organic milk & dairy - including their specially formulated 'barista milk'.

Our Food

Whether it's our £4 Breakfast, £5 Lunch, or something from our specials blackboard - it all starts out as a big pile of tasty ingredients and is freshly created in our small kitchen just behind the box office.

Because we make all of our food on-site, we know exactly what goes into every item so we're a great choice if you have any special dietary requirements.

From cafe favourites like toasties and home-made soup, to the hearty and wholesome home-cooked food on our specials board, there's sure to be something that will take your fancy

Community Cafe

We don't only try to cater for all with our food - we're confident that you'll be made to feel at home in our little corner of Middlesbrough Town Hall.

Situated within the wide old carriage driveway we are easily accessible for all - there are accessible toilets available, baby-changing facilities, high-chairs, and free wifi.

Our team also recently became dementia friends by taking some time out to learn more about it, and going forward we are hoping to host plenty more community focussed events.
