Despite rumours that the high street is struggling (thanks to the rise in online shopping etc), that could not be further from the truth on Front Street in Arnold, Nottingham. A thriving high street, it’s home to an impressive eight different cafes, ranging from the national chains to the small independents. If you’re in Arnold, here’s the lowdown on where to stop for a coffee or to treat yourself to lunch.
If you’re a fan of a quirky Christmas takeaway cup and a festive Christmas menu then head in to Costa. Serving up their popular range of treats, you could sample this year’s winter specials of a Caramelised Orange & Cream Latte or pigs & blankets mac and cheese.
This independent cafe prides itself on serving up fresh, hot and tasty food to their customers with popular menu items including the full English breakfast and their wide variety of filled paninis. Choose from egg, bacon, mushrooms, avocado, peri peri chicken and much, much more!
You may know it as the home of the sausage and bean melt and the champion in the world of sausage rolls but have you sampled all the other great things that Greggs has to offer? So much more than a pasty shop, they sell granola and yogurt pots, vegan mexican bean wraps and they even have a limited edition pumpkin spice latte too.
You can try the wonderful food that Cafe Amelia has to offer without even going in, thanks to their handy local delivery service! With a great range of toasties, jacket potatoes and breakfast foods, they do an amazing chilli that will warm you up on a cold day.
Another place that’s popular all over the country, Birds brings with them their famous cream buns and creamy hot chocolates, and they’re going above and beyond this month to mark the 100 year anniversary of the end of WWI. Selling the cutest poppy cupcakes, they are donating 15p from every sale to the poppy appeal so you get food that tastes AND does good.
For a hearty lunch, look no further than Paradise Cafe. Serving up omelettes, chips, salads and more, the cafe prides itself on home-cooked style food that will fill you up and have you returning again and again.
Situated just off of Front Street, this cafe is worth seeking out. Not only do they make yummy breakfasts, lunches and hot drinks, but if you have a special occasion coming up then you’ll want to order a cake from them. They make speciality cakes for all occasions with impressive decorating skills, that taste as good as they look! They even do gluten-free ones.
Bringing the list up to an impressive eight, this newly opened cafe is one to discover. Having had a refurbishment with new shop front and new furniture, the cafe is ready and open for business. They’ll be serving a great (and vast) range of jacket potatoes, omelettes, sandwiches, salads, pies and even roast dinners, to cater for your every food fancy or craving.
