Trendy Doncaster coffee shop is the perfect Instagram backdrop
A new coffee spot aims to update the ‘greasy spoon’ cafe aesthetic in Doncaster and prides themselves on their commitment to using only local produce.
Brix Coffee Co opened six months ago in Kirk Sandall and are passionate about supporting other local businesses and source all of their produce from Doncaster Markets.
Jack Pendlebury, aged 28, owner of Brix Coffee Co, said: “We’re an independent coffee shop and we want to be something new and exciting for Doncaster.
“We’re proud that we source everything locally, we believe that it’s important to support local enterprises instead of the big boys in the industry.”
Brix Coffee Co sources its fruit and vegetables from K.D. Davis and Sons and it’s meat from Plane and Armstrong Butchers both inside the town centre market.
Jack also says this choice is also reflective of the environmental impact that shopping local produce has - in regards to the reduction of CO2 emissions when transporting goods across the country.
“We’ve had a fantastic first six months - we have a regular customer base and there are always new people coming through the door,” he continued.
“People are ready for a change and want something different from the old greasy spoon cafes.
“Young consumers are an important market and they like our fresh spin on things.”
The cafe serves breakfasts, brunch and is expanding its food menu into lunch.
One of their stand out items is their Kronut which is a cross between a croissant and a donut.
Jake said: “A lot of our food is tailored towards the health-conscious or people with vegan diets.
Brix Coffee Co even has its own blend of coffee made at Sheffield Forge Roastery.
“It’s a medium to dark blend with notes of chocolate, nuts and dried fruit – sourced from Peru, Guatemala and Vietnam.
“People that have come in have told us that they think it’s the best in Doncaster.”
The business is hoping to expand into other areas of Doncaster in the near future and is also looking to take on an apprentice through Doncaster College.
