With a “passion for delivering exceptional coffee”, the WIRED team are clearly doing something right, as nearly all of their reviews on Trip Advisor are rated “excellent”.

The Pelham street-based café is bustling with customers, both new and loyal, from the moment it opens until close, and offers so many varieties of coffee that only a true fan of the drink would be able to decipher between them.

Reviewers love WIRED, with one reviewer writing: “The coffee is fabulous, the atmosphere is warm and friendly.”

Open Monday- Friday: 8:30am-6pm. Saturday: 9:30am-6pm. Sunday: 11am-5pm.

White Rabbit Teahouse

There are actually two White Rabbit Teahouses located in Nottingham- one on Hounds Gate and one on Bridlesmith Walk- so there really is no excuse for paying one of the cafes a visit.

Serving homemade cakes, scones and light lunches alongside your beverage of choice, the café offers a range of traditional coffees, and promise to have “just the thing for you”.

One customer raved: “Alice would have loved it!”, adding that they “Really loved the vintage décor with the bunting, pretty tea pots and mismatched cups and saucers.”

Open Monday- Saturday: 10am-5pm. Sunday: 11:30am- 5pm.

200 Degrees Coffee Shop

After opening in October 2014, 200 Degrees has already received an award for Best Coffee Shop for Working Out of Office at the London Coffee Shop Awards- any coffee lovers know this is a big deal.

The café describes itself as “Nottingham’s specialist coffe roaster”, and despite it being larger than the average coffee shop, nearly every table is filled due to the popularity of the place.

With 123 “excellent” reviews, Nottingham has plenty to say about 200 Degrees.

One reviewer wrote: “It’s well documented on here that 200 is about the best coffee in the city (only Wired is marginally better in my view).

Open Monday- Friday: 7:30am- 8pm. Saturday: 8am- 7pm. Sunday: 9:30am-  6pm.

Hungry Pumpkin

Lace Market based Hungry Pumpkin is a family owned café and Deli which promises to serve “freshly prepared food with locally sourced ingredients”.

Their large menu is filled with a selection of Italian-inspired dishes, included sandwiches, wraps and paninis to accompany your hot beverage.

Reviewers praised the café for its “amazing selection of hot drink”, with one writing: “Small, comfortable, and friendly family run establishment that is probably the best cafe in Nottingham.”

Open Monday- Friday: 8am- 5pm. Saturday: 9:30am-4pm.

Charlie’s Coffee Bar


Charlie’s coffee bar is a little more out of the way, but it’s definitely worth getting out the Google Maps and sourcing out this independent coffee and sandwich bar.

There’s free Wi-Fi for those who fancy drinking whilst working, and a huge selection of hot drinks to choose from starting from just £1. This is definitely one for students or those on a budget.

Reviews were nothing but positive, with one customer writing: “The coffee was gorgeous.”

Open Monday-Friday: 8am-4pm. Saturday: 10am-4pm.
