We specialise in coffee here. All our beans are freshly roasted on the premises (this
sets us apart from 99% of other coffee outlets in the UK).
Our most popular drinks are latte and cappuccino, which are both espresso based.
We also brew freshly filtered coffee, from beans of a single origin.
We serve numerous types of tea. Our hot chocolate is well renowned in the area, we
can make it as thick as you want it, some people actually eat it with a spoon!
Our milkshakes are simply made with ice cream and milk. Both are sourced from farms
within 10 miles of the shop. We sell fruit smoothies that are made from real fruit
and natural yoghurt.
Our cakes, biscuits, cookies, brownies, flapjacks etc. are all home-made in Stow.
We don't really serve any other food, but if you want to bring a sandwich in from
somewhere else we don't mind at all (just as long as we can have a bite....)
We now have an alcohol licence. So we can add a shot of Baileys to your latte, a
dash of Cointreau to your hot chocolate or for the more adventurous we think we've
perfected the Espresso Martini! Now you know why the locals of Stow on the Wold
are so happy…
We have room for 45 customers to be seated in the shop, the majority of which are
upstairs in our four upstairs coffee lounges. We have comfy settees up there and
the much sought after leather armchairs by the window....
We have a high chair and some toys for our younger customers. The toilet has a window
seat that can be used as a baby changing area.
We also offer free Wi-Fi and well behaved dogs are allowed in (they usually get a
treat or two as well.)
For your safety, please note there are a couple of steps to get into the shop and
anyone over 5 feet 4 inches must watch out for the numerous low beams found within.
And be aware that most of the walls and floors are not particularly straight or flat…..
The building itself is Grade two listed, and was built around 1660-1670, however
the cellar and part of the frame of the building are believed to date from Medieval
times (when exactly is fairly vague, as the Medieval period lasted from the 5th Century
to the 15th, still what's a thousand years among friends!)
