City centre cafe culture

Steam Yard, Division Street, Sheffield

The coffee culture is thriving in the city, and Sheffield is quickly making itself known as a hub of ethical, carefully crafted coffee. There are unique coffee shops springing up all over.


200 Degrees Coffee

200 Degrees Coffee was founded by University of Nottingham alumni Rob Darby and Tom Vincent. In 2012 the pair began roasting coffee in their garage, and just two years later the first 200˚ Coffee shop was opened in Nottingham. Since then Rob and Tom have opened coffee shops in some of the UK’s coolest cities. There are now seven 200˚ Coffee shops around the country, including on Sheffield’s own Division Street. Expect lovingly roasted coffee, pastries, baguettes and wraps in a cool, inviting setting that links with Sheffield’s industrial past, featuring a distressed copper wall installed by Tom himself.
