I absolutely l o v e the city of Chester so I’m going to start by suggesting that you go! There is plenty to do around the centre and there are loads of cute (independent and chain) coffee shops. This is a major pull factor for me!
I visited Bean & Cole with a friend who highly recommended the place. She thought I’d love it and she was absolutely right!
First of all, I absolutely love the green shop front and cute window art! It draws you right inside from Frodsham Street!
The shop interior is minimalistic but it works. With exposed brick walls and wall art, there’s a variety of seating areas and despite being quite a small unit, the team have created ample space for plenty of visitors. The minimalist lighting around the shop results in a warm and comfortable vibe, attracting a variety of customers.
On entrance, the staff are strikingly friendly and provide a lovely warm welcome.
The drinks menu is vast meaning there’s plenty to choose from, whatever you’re in the mood for (even for non coffee lovers)! I chose a Latte which came in a really cool mug with the artistic flare I so greatly appreciate. The coffee was smooth, rich and a good size.
I also opted for something sweet to eat. I chose the Açai Bowl which gets a 10 out of 10 from me! It was absolutely delicious, consisting of a red berry smoothie mixture, granola, fresh fruit, coconut flakes, chai seeds and peanut butter. This is by far one of the freshest dishes I have ever ordered from a coffee shop.

Made in house, I can not knock the quality of the dish or the fresh, local produce it consisted of.

The Bowl itself was really artisan and handmade by Fire Station Square Pottery in my home town of Salford – check them out (link at end of post).
As I’ve alluded to already, the staff were so friendly, attentive but also respectful of our current social restrictions.
All in all, I am so glad I visited this coffee shop and I will be back, without doubt!
Let me know what you think if you pay Bean & Cole a visit!
