Cafe Culture

If you enjoy dining al-fresco, sipping your latte in the open air whilst indulging in some people-watching, then Coleraine is the place for you with its thriving outdoor cafe culture.

Enjoying dinner and drinks outside was once viewed as an activity you enjoyed only on holidays in Europe. However, with more outdoor seating than any other town in the Causeway Coast & Glens council area, the pedestrianised town centre is frequently packed with people enjoying eating in the open air, reminiscent of our European neighbours, no matter what the weather!

You’ll find it the ideal place to meet with friends, kick back with a good book or simply watch the world go by over a nice cup of coffee.

As more and more businesses in the town apply for their pavement cafe licence you will be able to enjoy the external buzz emulating the atmosphere from within the cafes.

If enjoying your cappuccino outdoors isn’t your thing, there are a wealth of warm and friendly cafes dotted around the town centre.

In the last 18 months, thanks to the Covid pandemic our coffee shops have become so much more - they are a community space, a workplace, a space with a uniquely calm atmosphere to meet family, they are a place to get a caffeine fix on the way to work, for others as a place to gather and meet friends whether it’s the older generation or teenagers hanging out after school and college. 

They are the ideal spot for connection, often offering a friendly smile for those who feel isolated.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out the fantastic range of cafes and coffee shops Coleraine has to offer, you’ll find it the ideal place to kick back and watch the world go by.
