Bean cafe

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "More than just Beans"

Quote:
The Bean CafeMy husband and I visited this cafe for a tea and cake offer they had. It is a little way out of the city centre but near a number of restaurants and businesses including Derby College . It has a pay and display car park beside it and also across the road where you find the pay and display car park that is £2.75 for a day. I usually park there if I have a few things to do in Derby as it works out cheaper. This cafe is handy then to meet friends doing the same thing.The cafe was the winner of the Best Cafe given by Derby Food & Drinks Award so it is well worth a visit for that alone. They obviously cater to the businesses around there as they are only open 8 am ...Read More

Costa Coffee

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Costa cost about the same as others"

Quote:
I have a Costa loyalty card as Costa is my husband's favourite coffee place. We travel a lot and also drive around the country a fair bit so Costa is a chain that we come across quite frequently and it is good to get a little reward from our coffee visits.The Costa franchise I am referring to in this review in one the ground floor at the end of the centre nearest M&S and Debenhams. There is another small franchise upstairs in the centre but this is the main one downstairs.This is not in my view the best position as the cafe is not completely closed in and in winter it gets pretty chilly when sitting at the front of the cafe. However I put up with it as my husband seems to l...Read More

Patisserie ValerieWestfield centreDerbyWe have only very recently had this branch open in Derby and I was drawn in by the fabulous looking cakes and gateaux in the window displays.The original Patisserie Valerie was in Soho in London's Soho and that was way back in 1926. The founder was a Madam Valerie and she was a Belgian who felt she had to share her fine Continental Patisserie with the English. Although her original shop was bombed in WWII she opened another shop and this shop became a chain of shops mainly down around London but now spreading northwards so hence ours in Derby.We went in and headed for the counter to order and were asked if we wanted...Read More

Derby Cathedral

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Okay if nearby"

Quote:
As you sit enjoying your drink you can admire paintings that are displayed that are for sale, there are cards and books as well as gifts available in the shop which leads from the cafe. Downstairs is a small art gallery and a display of the Cathedral's treasures as well as some valuable items from churches around Derbyshire including a plate from our village church.This downstairs area is available for hire for groups and meetings and the cafe will cater for functions for up to 45 people. The stairs going down are open and so anyone with disabilities re walking could have a problem and I didn't notice a lift but there may well be one.The toilets were nice and clean and th...Read More

The Book Cafe

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A cafe with books and music"

Quote:
This Book cafe used to be in the Westfield centre but in 2009 it moved to this address on the Corn market which is known as the Cathedral Quarter of Derby.The café is an independent, family owned business and is now in a restored Grade 2 listed building which was originally as a bank built in 1879.I regularly visit this cafe to meet with a group of friends and we like the welcoming relaxed atmosphere in the cafe. There is a variety of seating from leather sofas to upright wooden chairs and armchairs as well so you can choose which suits you best. The floor is stripped wood and quite rustic looking and all around the cafe are bookshelves with books you can look at ready to purc...Read More
