Those who like the best, barista-brewed coffee, great food, and a famously good cup of hot chocolate are happy to have a Heaven Independent Cafe in the heart of Hull’s Old Town. There’s a few good Heavens scattered around the Yorkshire region, and each is an independently-owned cafe with a uniformly homely feel and a fantastic range of cafe fare. This particular cloud nine is found down King Edward Street, within easy reach of all the cultural landmarks in the centre of Hull.
A great spot to fuel up or refresh after taking in the sights scattered about Hull’s venerable Old Town – the Maritime Museum and the Ferens Art Gallery are just two landmarks close to the docks at the foot of King Edward Street – Heaven Independent Cafe’s Hull outlet is a destination for locals and tourists alike. On those balmier days, there’s nothing like a glass of Heaven’s traditional lemonade or their lemonade fruit smoothies and frappes. All natural, vegan, and free from additives and GMOs, these are real thirst quenchers.
Forget the chains that try to crowd out independent cafes wherever these plucky souls set up shop, Heaven Independent Cafe’s Hull premises are champions of down-to-earth and genuine cafe hospitality. Spread across two floors down King Edward Street in Hull’s Old Town, there’s plenty of seating. Just as well, because this cafe gets busy at peak times with in-the-know locals and visitors who can spot the difference, all in search of wholesome snacks and light meals, served always with a smile alongside perfect coffees. In a word: heavenly.
