Sprinters Coffee Shop


A Shrewbury Original since

Sprinters Coffee Shop is particularly known for its selection of delicious home-baked cakes and its LavAzza Italian barista coffee.

It also serves light lunches, including sandwiches, soups and ploughmans, as well as full afternoon tea, teacakes, scones and a selection of teas, milkshakes, hot chocolate, protein shakes, cold drinks and juices.

Cakes are freshly baked from scratch by proprietor Julie Anderson who has a reputation for whipping up some of the most tasty cakes and desserts in town. There is usually a line-up of eight or nine lip-smacking cakes, tarts or cheesecakes to choose from each day.

Sprinters prides itself on using quality ingredients but is competitively priced, charging £2 for a speciality coffee and £2.75 for a slice of cake.

Full afternoon tea costs £6.95 per person and includes a scone with jam and cream, a slice of homemade cake, sandwiches and tea or coffee. Staff are barista trained and know how to make a proper flat white!

The family-friendly coffee shop also serves a light breakfast of toast and cereal and a children’s menu of sandwiches, snacks and drinks such as babychino topped with marshmallows, cartons of fruit juice, milk and kids’ milkshakes.

A Shrewsbury Original

While the choice of cakes varies each day, customer favourites lemon drizzle, caramel flapjack, fruit and cherry cake, bakewell tart and custard tart are usually a permanent feature of the menu.

Julie’s repertoire always includes a gluten-free option, such as the popular strawberry and almond ripple torte, and all her creations are made using free-range eggs, real butter and other quality ingredients. Fresh lemons are used to make her famous lemon drizzle.

Sprinters enjoys a 5-star hygiene rating.
