Home to an increasing number of independent coffee shops and cafés, Sheffield has embraced the brunch in recent years. Explore England’s ‘Steel City’ and you’ll find everything from a traditional full English breakfast to smoothies and pancakes. We pick the 10 best places to fill up in the morning.

Steam Yard

Steam Yard has a great reputation for brunch with a selection of fresh doughnuts, fronuts (a cross between French toast and a doughnut) and sandwiches served all day, along with a superb selection of coffee. Opened in 2014 by Matt Cottrill and Nick Pears, Steam Yard has won numerous plaudits and become an essential, brunch destination in Sheffield, helped by its cool interior of exposed brick walls and classic American styling.

Made By Jonty

Made By Jonty is a small independent café on Sharrowvale Road with an extensive all-day breakfast menu. Everything from breakfast burritos, fry-ups, porridge, smoked salmon, waffles, granolas and toast is available throughout the day. And with free wifi thrown in, this is a popular place for freelance workers and students too.


Bar, Pub Grub

Meaty Breakfast

As the Sheffield Student Union’s resident café and bar, Interval is a natural provider of late breakfasts and brunches the ‘morning after’. With a solid selection of traditional breakfasts, with both vegetarian and vegan options, as well as an array of breakfast sandwiches, Interval is a strong contribution to the student breakfast scene (and suitably priced too).

The Grind Café

Cafe, British, Vegetarian, $
By Kelham Island, across the water from the Kelham Island Museum, lies The Grind Café. Independently owned, the café serves homemade food and barista-style coffee. The breakfast menu is considerable, with a huge selection of omelettes and scrambled eggs, numerous kinds of pancakes, traditional breakfast classics, vegetarian options, waffles, granola, fresh fruit, oatmeal and bagels.


Pub, Pub Grub
If what you are looking for is a proper full English greasy spoon fry up, Fagan’s might be the place for you. A local institution, this pub is just as worn and familiar as it should be, serving pint-upon-pint, along with the classic selection of breakfast foods. Start your day in a down-to-earth atmosphere and enjoy a large helping of breakfast in friendly surroundings.
