The Best Coffee Shops Across the North East and Yorkshire
Celebrate UK Coffee Week (16th-22nd October) with a delicious cup of joe from your local independent coffee shop
Laneway & Co
Hidden down High Bridge Street in the heart of Newcastle, Laneway & Co have been serving silky smooth lattes for years. Their cosy coffee shop recently underwent a renovation and they now have a gorgeous, light and airy space where you can enjoy high-quality coffee alongside a scrumptious slice of cake.
17–19 High Bridge, Newcastle NE1 1EW
One of Leeds’ favourite coffee shops, Laynes Espresso have been serving quality coffee for the last 12 years. Over time they have expanded to include a kitchen, meaning you can stop for breakfast and lunch, as well as a great cup of coffee.
16 New Station Street, Leeds LS1 5DL
Rounton Coffee Roasters
Roasting sustainably-sourced coffee beans at their roastery in Northallerton, Rounton then brew the perfect cup of coffee at their coffee shops in Norton and Middlesbrough using their own speciality beans. Stop by to order your favourite coffee, before picking up a bag of beans to take home. Want to master your latte art skills? Book a barista course at the coffee academy at The Old Pigsty to learn from the experts.
27 Bedford Street, Middlesbrough TS1 2LL

Grinder Coffee Co.
Their signature blend is a bright, full-bodied medium roast, and the coffee here is mellow, well-rounded and perfect for those who love a bold cup first thing in the morning. Pair your latte, cappuccino or espresso with one of the locally-made cakes (Sunderland’s pink slice is a popular choice) and choose to sit in or take away at either of these coffee shops.
24A New Durham Road, Sunderland SR2 7AA
Hills Arts Centre, 17–18 Waterloo Place, Sunderland SR1 3HT
Pilgrims Coffee House and Roastery
Not only is this coffee shop in a unique location (housed in a walled garden on a tidal island off the coast of Northumberland), the team here also roast their own coffee beans. The family-run speciality coffee shop and roastery bring top quality, speciality grade, carefully sourced arabica coffee beans from around the world to UK coffee drinkers, and you can sample their coffee first hand at the coffee shop. Can’t make the trip to Holy Island? Order their coffee online to make the perfect home brew – we recommend the Daily Bread blend.
Marygate, Holy Island of Lindisfarne TD15 2SJ
Get a taste of Kiwi café culture at Tamper at Sellers Wheel in Sheffield. Tucked beneath a red brick vaulted ceiling, deliciously smooth coffee takes centre stage here, alongside a selection of cakes and pastries. Order everything from classic cappuccinos to milky mochas, try the matcha latte or ask your barista about the choice of guest coffees for a hand-brewed V60 drip coffee.
Sellers Wheel, 139 Arundel Street, Sheffield S1 2NU
