Hubble Bubble Coffee House
This quirky coffee house in the centre of Gloucester works its magic to entice locals and first-timers inside to sample all that it offers. Established in 2013, Hubble Bubble is warm and inviting, with hanging pendant lighting, vintage singer sewing machine tables to sit at, and local artwork making up the fun interior. The venue is also dog-friendly, so you’re welcome to bring your four-legged friends along. Owner Rae has a clear vision and has carefully selected everything you see on show to lend plenty of personality to this much-loved hub.
It’s not all style over substance though – cool music plays as you peruse the delicious menu, which places emphasis on local and ethically sourced ingredients. Dietary needs are well catered for, and hunger is kept at bay thanks to daily specials, soups, sandwiches, sweet potato jacket potatoes, and build-your-own beef, venison, and wild boar burgers. The delicious rosemary fries remain a firm favourite with regulars. Sweet treats are abundant here – we succumbed to the fantastic banoffee fudge cake and popcorn caramel brownie. To quench your thirst, magnificent freakshakes complete with tons of cream, sweet sauces and doughnuts complement the organic coffee and Fairtrade tea offering. One visit here and you’ll be under Hubble Bubble’s spell.
