5 Interesting Spots for a Cup of Tea in Wrexham

Drinking tea is a pastime enjoyed by many people across the UK.  Whilst we do love our morning cuppa at home, sometimes it’s nice to get out and about and enjoy a brew – and maybe even indulge in a slice of cake.

Here are some of our suggestions of some interesting and quirky places to enjoy a cup of tea in Wrexham.

Cwtch Ceramics

Set right in the heart of the pretty village of Rossett, Cwtch Ceramics offers a great place to relax, especially if you are a budding artist.  Not only can you grab a delicious sandwich and a coffee, you can also sit back and paint a number of different ceramic items.  Choose your items off the shelf – glazing and firing is all included in the price.  Painting can be a really good, mindful activity – why not give it a try?

Caffi Cyfle

Translated into English, Caffi Cyfle means Café of opportunity and offers jobs and volunteer opportunities for people of all abilities. The café serves a wide range of local produce at affordable prices and is set in the lovely setting of Alyn Waters Country Park offering some great riverside walks.   If you fancy being a little more active and burning off the calories from lunch, then you might want to check out Pedal Power, which is also situated at Alyn Waters.  This community initiative offers cycle hire for all including hand cycles to wheelchair bikes, trikes and dual-controlled cycles.

Top Tip! Caffi Cyfle also has a sister venue in Buckley, Flintshire which offers a Refurb and Reuse facility where you can take small household items to get fixed free of charge.

Yellow and Blue

Recently opened in an empty unit in the centre of Wrexham, the Yellow and Blue Hub has quickly become the heart of the community, with a café and community space, and plenty of activities taking place for all ages.   Yellow and Blue prides themselves on being a totally inclusive space – everyone is welcome to the hub, regardless of their background.  They offer support groups and social activities for people who are going through a range of issues and offer a safe, friendly space to meet with like-minded people.

Honey’s Bakery

If you are wanting to find a nice place for your morning cuppa that also offers a beautiful location, then you can’t go far wrong with Honey’s Café and Bakery, situated overlooking the River Alyn in Caergwrle.   Either sat on the sun terrace, or in one of the large bay windows you’ll get a clear view of the stunning scenery outside.

With fresh bread, pastries and other baked goods made on the premises, lots of parking and disabled access, it’s a perfect setting to enjoy a relaxing coffee and cake.

Pontcysyllte Chapel Tearooms

Just a stone’s throw from the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a World Heritage attraction, is the Chapel Tearooms.

The Chapel was originally built at the turn of the last century, with local red bricks from Ruabon and in recent years has undergone a vast refurbishment to bring it back to life.  The café incorporates many of the original features including a stunning wooden staircase as a focal point.

After you’ve indulged with some delicious food, why not take a trip in a narrow boat across the aqueduct, which stands at a dizzying 126ft/38m high – making it the tallest navigable aqueduct in the world and has World Heritage status!
