A modernist beauty that makes us envy students for all the hours they get to spend here.
Our Favourite Places would be nothing without our contributors — a massive thanks to all of them!
Tell us about you…
I’m a designer at Eleven. I’m interested in all types of design, films, travel, anything pedal-powered, and the great outdoors. I collect far too much stuff: Braun products, chairs, posters, ashtrays, 1960s design books, bicycles – the list goes on. I’m also Welsh and quite sensitive about it.
What does Sheffield mean to you?
Friendly people with a down-to-earth attitude, huge potential and ten minutes to some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.
What’s your favourite Sheffield place?
Endcliffe Park Cafe (outside, NEVER inside) on a sunny day, watching the dogs, with a plate of egg and chips on my green plastic table.
What would you do to improve the city?
- Employ Our Favourite Places as city ambassadors.
- Close Meadowhall and make the city centre somewhere worth visiting again.
- Re-develop Kelham Island as a "creative hub" offering affordable work/live spaces for designers and creatives.
- Make Sheffield a proper destination city by promoting it as a sports city: build a velodrome and assign an area of the city as a "sports hub", then sort out the pedestrian/bicycle access to it.
A gem amongst gems, serving up small plates of deliciousness to Sheffielders for nearly fifteen years. This is Chinese comfort food at its best: dumplings and bao, washed down with a pot of jasmine tea.
A mobile coffee stall run from the back of a beautifully restored Italian van, Motore can be found parked up on Howard Street in all weathers.
A cosy shop with an eclectic selection of soul, dance, funk, indie and (whisper it) prog-rock classics.
