Atkinson's Tea and Coffee Shop: The original 'old coffee shop'
Step back in time and visit this specialist tea and coffee shop established in 1837. Teas and coffees from around the world can be purchased, coffee is roasted daily on the premises and every effort has been made to keep the business as original as possible.
You can smell the coffee roasting as you drive past on the street - beautiful.
Besides the obvious coffee, we bought some nice brass and wooden handled little tea spoons.
Not open Sundays.
(Note they sell the stuff to take away, not drink on the premises).
What to buy: Tea, Coffee, specialist associated equipment.
