The Full Monty: Some of the best experiences in Sheffield
Get Your Brunch On!
For all you artisan bread, pastry and patisserie fans, this is your little slice of heaven.
Made by Jonty
Trek a little further along Sharrowvale’s indie food showcase and you’ll find Jonty’s. Touted by many as the best full English in the city, it’s a true brunch and brekkie gem – just make sure you get in early to avoid queues.
The aroma of freshly baked goodies is sure to inject positivity into your day, whether it be morning, midday or evening. The Forge Bakehouse delivers such authentic tidbits and even offers classes teaching you how to bake your own handmade delectables.
A collaborative effort from James O’Hara (Public, Picture House and Gatsby) and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders, there are two Ambulo venues – one at Millenium Gallery and one at Weston Park Museum – serving high quality comfort food throughout the day, alongside stunning coffee and cocktails.
This Aussie-inspired joint, based just opposite our office in Kelham Island, knocks up some of the finest brunch dishes in the city. Modern, spacious and with outdoor seating perfect for some al fresco dining.
Fancy a Brew?
Tucked away in a courtyard just off bustling Division Street, Steam Yard is an absolute gem of a place serving up the tastiest donuts in the city. The coffee’s something to shout about, too.
Found just a few minutes’ walk from Steam Yard, Tamper brings you Antipodean cuisine culture in style. There’s the cosy, quaint unit on Westfield Terrace, or the larger, more food-focused venue near the Hallam Students’ Union. Both are well worth a visit.
The Grind Café
This airy Kelham Island spot serves up superb breakfasts, lunches, salads and their jaw-dropping sausage rolls have achieved legendary status.
For a taste of Italy, look no further than Bragazzis – a longstanding favourite on the café scene and an award-winning deli. Delightfully old-school (no wi-fi here, kids) it’s well worth venturing out of the city centre for your fill of coffee, cake, sandwiches and beyond.
Small but mighty, Marmadukes offers the best of British food and drink with an exciting range of options from breakfast through to lunch (including a full English breakfast for under a tenner with vegetarian options available too). The perfect place to go for a hearty Sunday brekkie after a hectic weekend.
South Street Kitchen
Situated at Park Hill flats just above the train station, this independent coffee space with a focus on community and Middle Eastern food is the very definition of a hidden gem.
