Cafes

Cafe culture has exploded in St Albans since the 1990s. There are the usual global brands in the centre of town, but also numerous small cafes that offer something different.

Welcome back to Starbucks and a brand new New Look!

In August this year, we experienced the closure of Borders Bookstore in Colney Fields Retail Park. Along with that, the popular Starbucks Café closed too. This weekend, the fashion store, New Look has opened in its place.

The Flat Whites have arrived in St Albans

t is with great joy that I can announce that Flat White coffees can now to be enjoyed in at least three (maybe more?) local cafes! Initially, they were only to be found at the Merchant Tea and Coffee Co but recently they have appeared on the menus of Costa and Starbucks! Costa’s (skinny) Flat White was absolutely perfect. Starbuck’s Flat White also looked and tasted great but was only available in full-fat milk.

The Beech Tree Café

Maria has been tasting some of the best coffee in St Albans, at The Beech Tree Café, here is what she found.....

Taste the essence of life in historic surrounds.

Last year, the coffee and tea addicts of St Albans heard that the lower floor of the Town Hall would be converted into a café with outdoor seating. I was really pleased about this as it seemed the perfect location to sit and people-watch in one of the great historic cities of England.

Happy Birthday to our smiling Barista

C is for coffee, C is for caring, C is for community and C is for the lady who stands for all of the above; Charlie! Charlie, the famous lady with the little Soko Coffee van, has a community of her own;

Wilco Johnson Band and Glenn Tilbrook at the Alban Arena March...

The Alban Arena is a venue with a rich history of welcoming touring acts, some of which have gone on to world-wide fame - such as Dire Straits, who played there in 1978. I saw the legendary Rory Gallagher there in 1988, more recently The Waterboys and The Gorillaz have graced the stage. It is maybe a sign of the times that more tribute bands than original artists perform there these days. So when two of the UKs most respected musical artists were coming to the Alban Arena it was likely to be an evening not to be missed!
