Housed within a grade II listed building on the beautiful Low Pavement in Nottingham, Cartwheel Café and Roastery is the first coffee house in Nottingham to roast its own coffee on site. Wanting to bring a sense of play to the serious business of food and coffee, we have created a soft modern café space, offering full table service, a coffee take-out bar, and on site coffee roastery. Bringing you the finest beans from around the world, sourced and roasted on site by our coffee specialist, we will give you the opportunity to learn about what you are drinking and choose, not only the beans, but the brew method to be delivered by our trained baristas. Serving our breakfast, all day brunch and lunch menus, we cater not only for those with dietary requirements, but those who want beautifully made food at cafe prices. With plenty of options to eat in or to takeaway, our aim is to give you an experience you won't forget.
