There have been brilliant new additions to the thriving indie cafe scene in Shrewsbury over lockdown and we thought we'd share them here. We'll leave it to you to support them!

Shrewsbury's vibrant cafe culture is one of the things we love about living in this fabulous place and there are some absolute gems out there already - but we thought we'd let you know about some of the newest offerings that have opened up during the lockdowns. 


Hopefully Made's new coffee shop and art studio will be opening tomorrow (Friday, April 30th) at 9 - 10 Milk Street! As well as selling their art, they will also be running screen printing workshops.

Daily Brews UK- This independent coffee shop in The Square strictly opened just before lockdown, but they'd barely had a change to put their chairs and tables out before the pandemic closed them down, so we've included them here too! Specialty coffee with a twist & hearty, handmade food in the Square has outdoor seating. Open weekdays 8am-5pm, weekends 9am-4pm.
