If you have been into Durham City Centre in the past few months you may have noticed a new coffee shop opening up in the market place where Phones 4 U used to be.
Of course coffee shops are nothing new in Durham. We have more Starbucks, Costas, cafe Nero and many others than we know what to do with. So The Lounge is really nothing new in that respect.
I have mentioned this place a few times on instagram for its well presented food and decent portion sizes for reasonable prices. I paid only £8 for the above meal. Usually I would just get a coffee though. But I really wanted a sandwich!
What makes the lounge stand out though is the atmosphere inside. The staff are so friendly and quick to make your order.
It is quite a small shop with an upstairs sitting area. I love how well set out it is. There are so many plants and wooden tables with cushiony sofas and chairs. It’s a really relaxed atmosphere. And yes, it does have power sockets and wifi for laptops if you want to do some research or work.
If you are in the area, it’s definitely worth checking out.
