Couch (City Centre – Campo Lane)

DATE OF VISIT    Spring 2017

COMMENTS

Called in for brunch, and found a table straight away, a good variety of seating available, including some settees!

We ordered from the menus on the table. Coffees arrived soon after ordering, and were refreshingly tasty, rather than the all-too-common insipid offerings. We ordered a full breakfast (for him) and poached eggs (for her). Food followed after a short while, nicely presented, freshly cooked and piping hot. Good quality menu, sufficient options for vegetarians.

OTHER NOTES    Spotlessly clean and tidy, comfortable seating, friendly staff, speedy service. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Pay on ordering. The venue can also be part / fully booked out for special occasions (there was a 30th birthday party on our visit).

DEPOT BAKERY (Kelham Island)

DATE OF VISIT    Spring 2017

COMMENTS

Having seen this on a “10 best brunch venues in Sheffield” list we headed down to give it a try. It’s located in the Peddlers Market area, and is housed in what appears to be an old industrial unit.

It was quiet when we arrived just after opening, but the people just kept pouring in, and soon there was not a table to be had. First thing we noticed was the rack of freshly baked breads available to be purchased for take away (we bought two for later on). The bakery itself was in the next room of the unit, and was a hive of activity as they were making up some of the menu items.

We found a table and ordered at the counter, there are menus on the tables and some on the board behind the counter.  We chose one Eggs Benedict (on sourdough toast with ham hock, leeks and spinach!) and one wild mushrooms on sourdough toast (with a creamy mustard sauce with shallot), both of which looked and tasted the part. Coffees were good and hot and lasted the duration.     

Food was beautifully presented, tasted great with lovely fresh ingredients. Very friendly and efficient staff.   

OTHER NOTES    We paid on ordering, fresh water on tap flavoured with cucumber and mint, a great touch.

Urban Deli (City Centre – Campo Lane)

DATE OF VISIT    Summer 2013

COMMENTS

We called in for Saturday breakfast, and found a seat straight away, not overly busy. This is a cavernous place, furnished in a modern almost industrial fashion.

Urban Deli also operates as a deli take away.

We ordered from the menus on the tables. Coffees came after a short while, and food followed not long after. A nice simple range of tasty fresh food, with good coffee to accompany.

Pleasant friendly service.

OTHER NOTES    A welcome cool venue on a hot Summer day, newspapers available to browse. Pay on leaving.
