Coffee & Cafes

The Holt

Nestled inside its grand warehouse space, The Holt Cafe & Creative space offers the perfect atmosphere to grab a much needed coffee break while you continue to work on that next big adventure that will launch you into a world of unknown.

Started from a passion of good coffee and food, founders Jess and Gareth drew inspiration from travels across South America and Berlin where the rustic DIY vibe sparked the start for The Holt. A holt otherwise known as an otters den fitted their location perfectly as they reside close to some of Sheffield’s main waterways, and although we are yet to experience the inside of an otters den we imagine that it is just as snug and creative as the space you can find inside this particular Arundel St location.

With Smith Street Coffee Roasters providing The Holt with a blend of beans you can guarantee to experience the perfect tasting crema from their in house, hand built Giesen roaster. Championing local produce lies at the heart of The Holts ethos as they recognise some of Sheffields greatest independents like Cow Molly and Cocoa Wonderland, who blend together to create the most lustful hot chocolate.

If the brilliantly crafted drinks don’t grab your attention then The Holt offers a selection of unfussy food with specials such as ‘Fish Finger Friday’ accompanied by a strong selection of soups available on their specials board. If it is coffee and cake you are after then a selection of beetroot brownies, ginger tiffin and matcha white chocolate cake usually being available among other delightful treats. Having recently launched a new breakfast/brunch menu along side a new opening time of 9am on weekdays the future seems bright and the brunch at the Holt is the perfect way to start any day.

With an event filled year ahead, from poetry to music, art exhibitions to academic talks The Holt is quickly becoming a creatives playground for knowledge, a one stop shop to fuel a dream into a reality. With bistro nights on the horizon, it certainly seems that we won’t be forgetting about them any time soon.

Although being slightly off the beaten track it is clear as to why The Holt is fast becoming a favourite on the Independent scene, from coffee, sandwiches, brunch time treats, vegan bites and a pure love for creatives, The Holt has a huge rustic space that requires your visionary social mind. Head over next time you are in the area or seek a space to work when yours isn’t cutting it and enjoy an exclusive 10% OFF when you spend over £5 with your Independent Sheffield card.
