If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, you’re in luck, because Plymouth has plenty of cafés that beat your normal Starbucks hands-down. Indulge all of your chocolate and coffee dreams at Chocaccino, along The Barbican. As the name suggests, you’ll find plenty of choccie delights – you might even have a tough time choosing from their menu of homemade chocolates, cakes and real hot chocolates.
Or if chocolate’s not your thing (who are you!?) head over to RumpusCosy vintage tearooms in the ‘Radiant’ cultural space on Derry’s Cross – you’ll deserve a cake after a hard day of studying or revision. William’s Yard also has quite a few trendy cafés to enjoy.
Get your caffeine fix at the trendy YAY! Koffee & Laundry on Mutley Plain – you won’t have to make use of their laundry facilities though, as our accommodation has an on-site laundrette, but you can still enjoy a cuppa…Or head over to The Boathouse Cafe on The Barbican for a coastal view and chilled vibe.
And being by the seaside wouldn’t be complete without an ice cream (or three!). Aptly-named Blue Glacier Ice Cream Parlour, along The Barbican, is like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for ice creams, with every flavour imaginable, including cherry choc brownie, gingerbread, candyfloss, and rhubarb and custard.
