Well I have used this place quite a few times now, and have always found their hot chocolate to be the best in the area. The staff are great, and always try their best to make every visit an occasion to remember. Don't forget to ask about free loyalty cards

Popped in for a sit down and a drink after a long train journey, let me tell you something: definitely worth it! The interior of Kahawa is beautiful and the drinks were brilliant; the best latte I've ever had.

This is without doubt the best café in the city. The staff are friendly and helpful, the prices are very good and the quality is great. The premises are spotlessly clean, there's never dirty cups or plates left lying round for long, and the atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxed.

This is a little gem that a friend found and turned me onto. The Chocolate orange Mocha is absolutely divine and the mince pies are as delicious as they are enormous! They have a great range of coffee, tea and hot chocolate here, something for everyone. The cakes all look amazing, over time we plan to try them all! Another... More

This has always been the place, that I keep telling myself that I need to go to, and then I finally I made an effort. There is an amazing range of hot drinks, and I loved the hot chocolates. Particularly enjoyed the fact that they were able to make soya milk hot chocolate taste so good! Worth a walk in... More

My wife and I needed a pick me up after a long early morning drive to the city. The 2 shot Americano coffees were absolutely perfect... Strong, yet still full of flavour. The cafe was spotlessly clean, the server was extremely attentive and polite, even the Toffee and Banana muffin was of top quality. We are not from the Midland... More

Visit Kahawa Cafe every week and sometimes twice a week. The staff are very friendly and always have a smile on their faces. The coffee is so nice especially the vanilla skinny latte. I even purchased the coffee beans for my coffee machine at home and the guy was very helpful to advise how to store the beans. Would definitely... More
