Stowmarket’s 5 best places to grab a coffee
We searched for this town’s best coffee spots and here’s the list of our five favourites.
Stowmarket has a wide selection to choose from when it comes to cafés - so we hope this list helps you navigate where to go for your next brew.
This list is in no particular order and is based purely on affordability, atmosphere and black coffee/americano.
1. Osier Café
After relocating last year to St Peter and St Mary’s Church in Church Walk, Osier Café has proven to be a fantastic spot in the middle of town.
Owner Helen Knock and her team have been serving hot drinks, breakfasts and homemade cakes from the church since May and the historic location has proven extremely popular with customers.
The coffee on offer is delicious and every visit has been filled with a chatty and warm atmosphere.
Langams has been a Stowmarket staple for many years as one of most popular cafes in town - and for good reason.
It sits at the entrance to the town centre and the welcoming staff seem to start a conversation with every customer that walks through the door.
Hot drinks on the menu are really reasonably priced with the most expensive drink being a hot chocolate with marshmallows for £3.50.
Without a doubt, Langams serves one of the hottest cups of coffee on this list as the steam completely fogged up my glasses.
If you’re after a strong coffee that packs up a punch alongside a real sense of community conversation - this café delivers.
Moments in Bury Street is a bustling hotspot of community spirit - especially during busy lunch breaks.
The large menu features café classics like sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes and even a ‘make your own toastie’ section.
Most items ranged from £4 to £5.50 and what makes Moments really special is that all funds from the coffee shop go towards St Elizabeth Hospice.
I paid £2 for my black americano and alongside the wonderfully rich and smokey flavour, it is a great feeling knowing the purchase is for charity.
4. Feast Café at The Food Museum
If you prefer a quiet brew away from the town centre, Feast Café at The Food Museum could be for you.
The menu contains a lot of artisan products including homemade chutney with a warm sausage roll and homemade hummus with pita bread.
The coffee is served in sturdy mugs and delivers a no-nonsense kick of caffeine to warm up after a morning of exploring the museum's grounds.
5. The 1936 Café Bar at The Regal
The Regal is well known for being a fantastic cinema and has entertained families for years
Following suit, the relatively new café bar is a perfect place to catch up with friends before watching a film.
From stone baked pizzas to full english breakfasts, the café menu caters for all palettes which has built a strong reputation among regulars.
The 1936 Café Bar oozes glamour and elegance - making my frothy coffee taste like the golden age of showbiz.
