If you like: Coffee and Carbs
Then try: Steam Yard, Sheffield
Here they do sweet treats you never even knew you wanted to try – cruffin anyone? Thats a croissant-come-muffin to you and me. The doughnuts aren’t to be missed either, oozing with nutella, jam, Portuguese custard or salted caramel, they’re freshly-baked clouds of doughy joy – kick back in the courtyard or pick up a box to go.
