Flat white, cappuccino or Americano? Today is International Coffee Day and, whatever your favourite, Plymouth is home to some fantastic independent coffee shops! Here are five places to try in celebration of International Coffee Day. 

The Mad Merchant Coffee House

A hidden gem on the Barbican’s New Street, The Mad Merchant serve up great coffee. Relax in the garden or tuck into a delicious all-day breakfast.

Rockets and Rascals

Also a bicycle shop, cyclists are more than welcome at this Barbican café - along with those more interested in coffee and cake than bikes! With a relaxed vibe, it’s one to try, especially after a hard day’s pedalling.


Tucked away in a former garage, Koffiehuis has unbeatable views of Sutton Harbour and the Barbican and is a lovely spot to enjoy a coffee in the sunshine. They also offer free WiFi, so you can get some work done while enjoying the fresh sea air.

The Hutong Café

Located next door to the historic Royal William Yard, The Hutong Café offers expertly brewed beans and consistently delicious cups of coffee, with beautiful harbour views.
