CoffeeHaus, John St, Sunniside, Sunderland, SR1 1QD – Visit Now
CoffeeHaus can be found on St. Thomas Street in Sunderland city centre and came out of unused space in 808 Bar and Kitchen and what was changing rooms in the next-door port independent clothing to create this coffee shop. Only having cost £20,000 it is an incredible achievement and has turned the place around very successfully. Opting for the minimalist interior that many coffee houses prefer, it is stylish and cool. Using North East suppliers such as Baristocracy from North Shields and local bakers Whipped Goods Co (another Sunderland business who provide a staggering range of sweet treats) to provide their tray bakes and cakes. Each day there is a new baked good to enjoy at Coffeehaus, from cinnamon swirls through to tray bakes, banana breads and the more exotic chocolate Babka (a Jewish braided sweet bread) they have all of the sweat treats to complement your coffee.
When it comes to choosing suppliers, they want to stay in the North East – they are already committed to supporting other independents and seeing the local area grow with the aim to create more jobs as the business grows, with plans to increase from two staff to five. Part of the vision is to also connect it to its sister venue, BierHaus, and connect beer pumps so that the craft ales can also be provided to local people alongside the coffee. This independent coffee shop has plans to grow. They are already turning heads with LivingNorth listing them as one of the eight new businesses to watch out for in 2021 – this is a coffee shop to try while your in Sunderland.
