Coffee in Southampton.


As cliche as it is, I love coffee. Proper coffee, yes I love Starbucks and Costa as much as the next person. But I also like quirky individual coffee shops. 4 years in Southampton and I’ve found a few gems.

No. 4 Coffee and Wine Bar My love of this place is well documented on the blog. The food and iced coffee is perfect. If you are down by Ocean Village and fancy a change of scenery for a pre-dinner drink, try here.

Mettricks Mettricks followed me on twitter a few weeks ago and I was determined to come try out. After a morning of errands in West Quay, I came for an americano and bacon sandwich. The bread is as thick as a doorstop and the coffee is amazing. They played Ben Howard for the duration of my visit. Such a good spot for a lazy morning.


No. 7 The Coffee Room A 25 minute walk away from the Avenue is the tiny coffee shop near Shirley. Great fresh sandwiches and coffee. (Sorry, don’t have any photos!)

Any one else found a gem in Southampton for a coffee?
