Coffee: Joni – South Road, Sheffield

We are back in Sheffield, well, James is back in Sheffield and is now once again officially my second home. If you’ve been following us for a while, you’d know that James attends university in Sheffield, so expect more restaurant, especially coffee shop reviews in Sheffield over the next year.

Before we left Sheffield last year, we told ourselves that when we came back, we had to visit Joni, with their instagramable dishes, macaroons and doughnuts, it was a must and it obviously became priority, and here we are.

We arrived just after 11:30am and brunch is exactly what was on our mind. Upon arrival, we were taken by the very small independent feel of this coffee shop has, that we have terribly missed since being in busy London city.

Walking past the counter with beautifully crafted maroons and doughnuts, we knew we found another favourite, but we’ll take about those in the end. With only a handful of tables, we were lucky to have been able to get a cute table in the corner and admired the minimal aesthetics.

Joni has your typical brunch dishes, eggs and avocado on toast. We all know I, Jessica, always has something avocado, so instead, I chose to have classic eggs with bacon and James got something even more different than usual – mackerel toast.

We adore having options you wouldn’t usually get in many places, as we like to take the opportunity to try something different when we can. With that, James also took the chance to try their peach loose leaf tea, as I got myself a flat white.

Back to the doughnuts we all know you were waiting for, just look at them.

How could you not want one?

Although we were so full and I did contemplate for a while if I could consume one so quickly after eating such a wonderful brunch, I knew I regret it if I didn’t at least take one away, and so we did – the macaroon and mini marshmallow one 😉
