Bricks and Bakes: 'Builder's Brew' is Sheffield's LEGO Cafe!

Located on East Parade, adjacent to Sheffield Cathedral, is the newest café in the city centre. Perfectly blending the love for brick-building creativity and freshly brewed beverages, this café is set to become the go-to destination for LEGO fans of all ages.

'Builder's Brew' exudes a captivating atmosphere right from the moment you step through its doors. The interior boasts some impressive LEGO sets that have previously been completed by patrons, which invites you to start thinking of what creation you want to build during your time in the café. Admittedly, I never played with LEGO as a child and have never really found it to be something I was drawn to. But that’s where bringing a LEGO lover comes in. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our few hours collaborating, laughing, and working together on creating something whilst sipping some delicious brews and enjoying cake.

For just £3 per person per hour, you can reserve a table and build LEGO! The experts at Builder's Brew suggest that if you’ve booked for two hours or less, you’ll want to avoid sets with more than 500 pieces. When you get there, simply choose a set number from the ‘menu’ (presented on LED screens behind the counter), order your selected eats and get to the building! From Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, and Star Wars sets - there's tons to choose from. We chose the floral bouquet set (approx. 700 pieces) which took the entire length of the two hours that we were there. It was challenging but so much fun! It is such a satisfying experience to watch your creation come to life and finish the set.

Alongside your LEGO building, you can savour coffees, teas, hot chocolate, and cold beverages all prepared by the ‘Builder's Crew’. To appease hungry LEGO builders, the café also offers a delectable range of pastries, cakes, and sandwiches with vegetarian and gluten free options as well. They have also just launched a ‘build your own’ meal deal for kids which is fantastic for the school holidays too.

Builder's Brew is a wonderful addition to the city centre and is a welcoming environment that has turned a café experience into a hub of creativity and imagination. LEGO fans of all ages can explore their limitless potential, constructing their dream LEGO creations. So, if you find yourself wandering through the city centre soon, make sure to pause for a moment and visit 'Builder's Brew.' Whether you're a seasoned LEGO builder or just someone looking for something unique and delightful to do, Builder's Brew promises to be an unforgettable adventure in the world of bricks and brews. Embrace the spirit of creativity, share a cup of coffee with new friends, and let 'Builder's Brew' capture your imagination, one brick at a time.
