Sheffield is a pretty cool city - it’s not only vibrant, friendly and green but is also home to some AMAZING places to eat. I love discovering a new place to have lunch or to take a friend to dinner when they come and visit. So I’ve compiled a list of some of my fave places to eat… (sorry if this makes you crave cake or pizza)
Proove restaurant - what can I say? I’m sure most people have walked past it a few times on the way to Ranmoor/Endcliffe. It’s in Broomhill, just up from Morrisons. This place will always have a special place in my heart as it converted me into being a pizza lover. Controversially before I ate at proove, I didn’t get the big deal about pizza and would never choose it when eating out. So, when my flatmates decided to go out for dinner there I wasn’t too fussed about it, but thought I should give it a go so off we went to Proove! Fifteen minutes later I had eaten every last bit. With reasonable prices and a fab location, there’s no reason not to try the pizza here!
I won’t say too much about this place as its arguably the most well known place for a causal dinner for students at Sheffield. The pub has a chilled atmosphere, pies which are the definition of comfort food and, like Proove, it is in such a convenient location for uni accommodation.
Five Rivers Coffee Co:
This place trumps all other café’s in Sheffield for it’s cool but welcoming vibe. It’s a Vietnamese café with buckets of charm and traditional yummy Vietnamese sandwiches.
The Steam Yard:
This is a lovely independent coffee shop on Division Street. It has a cool interior and yummy treats to die for, including gorgeous brownies and donuts. It apparently has some great lunch options too.
Peddler Night Market:
This food and craft market comes once a month to Sheffield. It can feel like a bit of a trek from uni as it’s on Kelham Island, but the extra effort is worth it. With live music, a lively atmosphere and a range of food and drink stalls, it makes for a lovely evening out. Expect to queue to enter at peak times (around 7pm and 8pm) but this shouldn’t put you off going. I had a lovely pizza (I told you Proove converted me!), and my flatmates enjoyed some tasty burgers and fries.
I love this place - I love it’s American diner feel and dreamy menu. With crepes, waffles, shakes and ice cream, there’s literally nothing not to love about this place! Some people complain about the steep prices and, while the waffles and crepes aren’t cheap (around £5-6) they’re definitely big enough to share between two!
Saved the best till last. Tabby Teas is a cat café, which you can find near Aldi and Waitrose. This cute café sells cakes and brownies which you can enjoy in the company of their cats (which are all rescues). There are comfy sofas, funny cat books and plenty of toys to play with the cats! There is a fairly steep entrance fee (to cover the cat costs) so make use of the 2 for 1 entrance on Tuesdays for students!
