The Sanctuary is an award-winning coffee shop located in Stapleford, a suburb of Nottingham. The restaurant is known for its quality coffee, huge English breakfasts, fanciful milkshakes, and seasonal drinks like toffee apple and pumpkin spice lattes. The staff are always friendly and efficient at the Sanctuary. Despite the busyness that accompanies a popular coffee and breakfast destination, all of the staff are always welcoming and attentive to customers, which makes it an inviting place to hang out for all people of all ages.
Aside from coffees and English breakfast, the menu has a good selection of inexpensive breakfast and lunch items, including sandwiches, pastries, pasta, and salads. As the shop is especially popular amongst young families and mother and baby groups, there is a parallel children's menu offering all the things children love. A recent addition to both menus are 'crazy' milkshakes - themed over-the-top milkshakes made of Bluebell ice cream with the addition of loads of toppings, whipped cream, and even cakes or brownies.
