We must confess, we are BIG tea fans at OFP. In recent years, however, our heads have been turned. And it all started with Bragazzi’s. The delicious aroma emanating from our friend's espresso was impossible to ignore, and drinking English Breakfast just feels a bit wrong in an Italian cafe. When in Rome and all that.
There's so much to love at this Italian cafe and deli: delicious homemade panini and cakes, scoops of gelato in summer, coffees expertly made from their own unique blend, and pannettone to take home at Christmas. On top of all that, there's the added bonus of Bragazzi's decor – the best in Sheffield. And, situated on Abbeydale Road, it's the perfect place to recuperate after a good rummage in the many nearby shops and centres of the Sheffield Antiques Quarter.
A place this packed with charm is, naturally, very popular – so aim to get there early at the weekends if you want to bag a spot on the comfy leather settees or (in summer) the outside tables.
