Only a short stroll from PLATFORM_ in Bedford you’ll discover Coffee with Art, a unique café infused with an inspiring atmosphere. You know you’ve found it once you spot the majestic book-built wall.
Coffee with Art sets the perfect space for you to indulge yourself in delicious coffee or, if you prefer, a special selection of tea or home-made chai. The menu offers an extensive list of beverages, together with rolls and home-made cakes.
Recognising the need for high-quality products that are ethically supplied, Coffee with Art has chosen to cut out the traditional middlemen and instead to buy its coffee straight from the growers. The café has successfully incorporated this direct trade approach within its business and has created mutually beneficial relationships with individual coffee producers.
What makes Coffee with Art irrefutably stand out in the Bedford crowd, however, is its unique and relaxing atmosphere. The beautiful setting stems from the book elements that are melded within the structure of the café itself. A wall built from a cluster of reclaimed books and a stairway erected from more literary pieces give off the refined sense that the entire place is submerged within a world of its own.
To give the rustic space a flare of history, Coffee with Art used salvaged 120-year-old factory floorboards to make the flooring. The exposed brick walls add to the unique aesthetics, while the traditional leather Chesterfield sofas and Edison-style lighting together give a cosy feel to the place. It is safe to say that the café offers a peaceful retreat for you to read, work, relax and spoil yourself with a treat.
The walls are decorated with amazing art work and photography pieces by local artists. Being a small Bedford gem, Coffee with Art is keen on supporting those local talents by promoting and selling their work.
Located at 82 High Street, Bedford MK40 1NN, Coffee with Art is open seven days a week. Take advantage of this perfect retreat from your busy life by enjoying a smooth cup of coffee and a tasty slice of cake at this exceptional café.
