Cracking Places for Coffee in Harrogate

Feb 27, 2018

Whether you’re after a pre-work caffeine fix or a quiet afternoon with a book, Harrogate has a coffeehouse for every occasion.

With the promise of delicious cakes and rich espresso, be sure to pop into one of these independent gems for your next coffee in Harrogate:


A family-run establishment with an award-winning past, Baltzersen’s is a refreshingly crisp slice of Scandinavia tucked away in Harrogate.

Specialists in Norweigan food, local coffee and scantily clad IKEA furniture, this coffeehouse is an ultra-cool alternative to the vintage-Britain feel of the wider town.

Leeds based North Star supply the main filter, with rotating options offering a new blend from across the globe.

That’s Starling Independent Beer & Coffee House, to give the joint its full name.

When hasn’t there been a better combination than a beer and coffee chaser? Never, that’s when.

Your caffeine hit is roasted just down the road, at local boys Dark Woods. Starling’s uses Dark Woods’ award-winning Under Milk Wood medium blend, so you know you’re getting a tasty cup.

There’s a solid brunch menu too, with lots of hearty grub to choose from handmade pizzas to loaded poutine.

Bean & Bud

The award-winning Bean & Bud is a hipster’s paradise and pours some of the best coffee in town.

Nestled away on Commercial Street, this little spot is perfect for idling away a Sunday afternoon.

The team here know a thing or two about coffee and you can have your brew brewed in a variety of waves, from the snappy V60 to the smooth-tasting Aeropress method.

LDMC Espresso Bar

An Italian style espresso bar in the heart of Harrogate, LMDC is a popular haunt of the lunchtime crowd.

The coffee is from ever-popular London roasters Square Mile and the menu is stacked with locally sourced goodies including toasted sandwiches and proper pie and peas.

The Wild Plum

We’ve had our coffee and beer combo, so now how about some women’s fashion alongside that filter coffee?

This prim and proper venue is hidden away on the 1st floor of popular boutique, Snooty Frox.

Styled like a pull-out spread from an edition of Country Living, The Wild Plum partners great-tasting coffee with a deliciously light food menu.

Better be quick if you plan on eating though as food is served up on a first come, first served basis.

Mama Doreen’s Emporium

When the queues for Betty’s are just too long (and when aren’t they?) head over to Mama Doreen’s for a (we say better) alternative.

Vintage chic is everywhere, and in amongst all that are rows upon rows of sweetshop-style jars and what Doreen’s dubs “proper Yorkshire cupcakes”.

The Emporium’s an afternoon tea spot, but that doesn’t mean they’ve neglected their coffee.

Traditional Italian roasts are the name of the game and are the perfect partner in crime for that cheat day cupcake.
