Description
Cinderbox Coffee is a friendly, independent coffee shop in the heart of Chester. Save up to 30% on our daily deals. All deals are served with our finest, authentic, Italian, dark roast coffee. Here at Cinderbox we don’t do tiny, our coffee cups can attest to this. We have freshly made paninis, bagels, croissants and sandwiches. We always have a variety of locally made cakes and pastries, with a range of gluten free cakes. New this summer we have Gelato, Cinder Shakes, Frappes and Smoothies. We have an outdoor sitting area, looking out onto Bridge Street, which is a popular spot to sit and eat our gelato, sip on our new shakes and relax. Cinderbox has a number of comfy couches, for those times you just need to rest your legs and have a coffee. We are open for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. The team at Cinderbox look forward to seeing you.
