Situated just a stones throw from Cheltenham’s regent town centre is a Scandinavian family-run, bijou coffee house located in a former shipping container famed for their fantastic coffee served alongside a superb range of fresh authentically baked cakes, pastries and savoury snacks.
Although small in size their coffee and cakes certainly pack a punch, we’d highly recommend trying one of their ‘friands’ (a Swedish muffin) with the salted caramel with pear & pecan a divine choice, there’s also chocolate & hazelnut and plain too alongside warm Portuguese tarts (Pastel de Nata, pictured).
Cookies feature marshmallow & double chocolate with tray-bakes varying from biscuit bomb, chocolate & coconut flapjack, Jammie Dodger, and Biscoff cookie slice. For those looking for energy targeted food there’s a small selection of protein balls (coconut, strawberry or cinnamon) alongside banana bread to boot.
The specially selected coffee roasts vary by the day; on our most recent visit they included a Brazilian with dried fruit & almond notes alongside an El Salvador with subtle hints of vanilla & citrus. The cinnamon protein ball, long black vanilla coffee (from El Salvador) alongside a creamy Pastel de Nata were the perfect match for our summer Cotswold ride!
Out front in the sun-trapped courtyard you’ll find a small amount of benched seating alongside a number of tables inside the former shipping container too.
