Best coffee shop in town!

I'm sure I'm not the only one who cannot survive a day without consuming some sort of beverage packed with caffeine. That simply does not happen in Biba's life. Neither am I a fan of making my own coffee or teas at home, mainly because of the fact I'm really lazy, but lets admit, if theres a place in town that makes the most delicious beverages and sweet treats, would you want to bother making your own?  So, let me introduce to you Brü coffee and gelato; my favourite place to eat, socialise, and believe it or not, do my uni work without any distractions.

Brü basically offers everything you would want in a cafe; specially hand crafted coffee, a huge selection of sandwiches and toasties freshly made in store, over 20 flavours of heavenly gelato  made in Leicestershire, (the raspberry sorbet is my fave), more than 10 tempting flavours of loose leaf tea and the most divine Liege Belgian waffles that I guarantee you won't find anywhere else. And if thats not tempting enough, Brü is well known for being Leicester's first late night cafe and by its unique and quirky decor giving it a welcoming, homely and soothing atmosphere. You'll find loads of shoppers, parents and students stopping to take a break but its not just the food that attracts them. It's the brilliant friendly service from the staff that work there and the free wifi is just the cherry on top!

Brü recently celebrated their 1st Birthday and generously treated staff and customers to cake and complimentary hot drinks, which I was very kindly invited along to. Since they opened in March 2014, they have had enormous success and nothing but positive reviews and I only hope to see their business flourish and many more years of delicious coffee and gelato.

So if you live in Leicester or even if you don't and still haven't had a chance to savour what Brü has to offer, then you need to hurry down there immediately. Get your friends together for breakfast, lunch or dessert, Brü will definitely satisfy those cravings. I reccomend you try the coconut frappe, spicy cheese and jalapeño panini or peanut butter gelato, my three personal favourites, trust me you'll thank me later! And don't forget to check out their website and follow them on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter so you can upload and share your photos using the hashtag #BruLeicester.

Happy Brüing!
