Coffee & Cafes

Show me Joni

Sheffield has that ‘big village’ feel to it; everyone knows everyone and you’re sure to bump into friends and family whenever you step out of your door. This creates great community spirit in many neighbourhoods around the city and South Road in Walkley is no different.

Residents will be pleased to know that another independent has just opened it’s doors opposite the library; Joni is owned by Kathryn and Liam and specialises in macaron’s and good coffee.


They have actually been a business since September 2015 but spent their time doing the rounds of markets, food festivals and pop-up shops, as well as providing fine establishments like Steamyard and Upshot with the best macaron’s around!

With the increasing demand they needed a bigger bakery and so opening a shop was the obvious step; they could provide the people of Walkley and Sheffield with a peaceful space to take a few minutes and enjoy the finer things life has to offer.


Although their bread and butter is macaron’s and coffee they also serve brunch and sandwiches throughout the week and at weekends. To keep things as local as possible the bread is provided by Gerry’s down the road and Our Cow Molly provides the milk for great coffee!


You may be wondering where the name comes from; Joni is actually Liam’s Nan who has nine children and over 50 grand- and great grandchildren, none of whom have taken her name. A very fitting title for a local, family business, I am sure you’ll agree.

So, when you’re next in Walkley be sure to wander that little further along South Road and pop in to Joni for a macaron and a coffee.
