what's the story?

Established in Spring 2018 (in the the old Post Office), Datchworth Coffee is the place for great barista coffee, tasty breakfasts, lovely lunches and a delicious selection of cakes. 


As well as our cosy front room, we have a covered and comfortable courtyard - lovely in the summer and when it's a little chilly, with the window-blind down and the heaters on, like being indoors!

We love a pooch in Datchworth Coffee - dogs most welcome inside or in the Courtyard.  Water on tap for the thirsty ones and a natural treat available on the house if well-behaved!!

Every month, we have a special Supper Club evening; a themed 3-course menu with a choice of starter, main and dessert.

Book and pay for food in advance and then on the night, choose from our curated selection of wine, beer or have a bottle of fizz (we are fully licenced).

If you want to join the Supper Club mailing list and be connected to us, please drop us an email to datchworthcoffee@gmail.com with your name, email and mobile number.

Note that Supper Clubs are temporarily suspended to ensure compliance to social distancing rules.
