FOOD: Mettricks - the best coffee in Southampton

Mettricks Southampton
You might have seen from my Instagram and Twitter of late my new favourite location in Southampton, Mettricks
Basically the lovely Alice from Annie Writes Beauty is a bit of a wizz at finding the next hot places in the city, and pretty much made us fall in love with Mettricks and everything they do. 

Mettricks is a gorgeous and rather quaint local business in the heart of Southampton that specialises in bringing the very best coffee and loose-leaf tea to city dwellers and visitors, as well as locally sourced food. In keeping with a traditional cafe they of course sell an abundance of cake (especially to bloggers - lemon and blueberry is lush FYI), as well as breakfast, brunch, lunch and as of February 26th evening food. 
Housed in Old Town and outside the Bargate they have great locations depending on where you are in the city, and come May, we'll be seeing Mettricks in the culutral quarter in the newly refurbished Guildhall Square. Due to their new opening and fancy extra location, they are broadening their coffee horizons and introducing live music, cocktails, wines and evening food with opening times running til 10pm at Old Town and 11pm at the Guildhall on a number of evenings per week. 

Of course, I'm totally excited. I've kinda fallen in love with Mettricks in the last few months and quite happily will go there over the chain coffee shops. Plus the team that run each location are just amazing, and so talented. Oh and Spencer (the owner) named the coffee house after his Great Grandparents... could you get any cuter? 

Last week I popped along to Mettricks with a couple of the girls for an evening of cocktail tasting (no alcohol for me) and food.

And massive thank you to Spencer and Steve for a lovely evening! 

Give them a follow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. And if you're in Southampton, make sure you pop by for the best coffee, loose-leaf tea and food in the city centre!
