Outside of Coffee Cup - Clarence Pier


Coffee Cup is a well-established, local family business serving barista-prepared, freshly ground Italian espresso coffee, alongside a mouthwatering selection of treats. With a full menu offering hot and cold food to meet all dietary needs - including gluten free, vegetarian and vegan - you are sure to find something to tempt you.

Food is prepared on site daily, from toasties and sausage rolls to deep-filled baguettes and freshly baked pastries.

Free wi-fi is available for all customers, as well as a loyalty scheme (both in card form and on the free to download Coffee Cup app) to reward you with a free hot drink of your choice after collecting nine stamps.

The coffee house, located at the front of the Clarence Pier arcade building, is open come rain or shine, 364 days a year where the friendly team is waiting to welcome you.
