CAWA artisan bakery and coffee shop will open in the old Thornton's chocolates shop on Broad Pavement, Chesterfield.

CAWA takes its name from the Turkish/Arabic word for coffee. Chris said: "For CAWA, it all began with the vision of artisan food and artisan coffee served in an amazing place with live jazz music celebrating life. Our first artisan bakery and coffee shop opened in 2017 serving Broomhill, Sheffield. With tremendous support from our community we were able to open a second location in the city centre. Our shops are open all year round, seven days a week, except Christmas Day."

"We take pride in everything we do and we want everything we do to be the best it can be. We bake all of our bread and patisserie seven days a week using the finest ingredients. When it comes to making the perfect cup of CAWA coffee, we ethically source our own green beans directly from farmers from across the globe and hand roast here in Sheffield. We are very much looking forward to delighting our new customers in Chesterfield."
