As two ex-baristas, and therefore Coffee Snobs™, we are always looking for the best cup of coffee wherever we visit. 

If you’re planning a trip to Cheltenham for Christmas Shopping, Christmas Markets or a Cotswolds getway, or are local and looking for a new spot for a change of scene, we’ve used our local knowledge and compiled a list of our top coffee shops in Cheltenham. 

All of these spots serve really high quality delicious speciality coffee. They’re also all independent, and owned by women. If you’re looking to support local business, you won’t be disappointed.
