Best for Lunch Breaks and Cakes
As someone who works in a nearby office, I had already heard a lot of positive things about this little gem of a patisserie before going there for lunch with colleagues and friends, or sampling some of their cakes to take away.
La Pearle is an airy and light establishment with friendly staff and Wi-Fi access. This corner café is easy walking distance for a number of offices and businesses dotted around Millsands and Kelham Island, and from the nearby hotels.
The cake-counter itself boasts a nice selection of treats for either you to feast on if you are feeling you have earned some, or to take home to your loved ones if you are feeling like sharing the love. The quality of the pastries is commendable and I will be back to try something new again soon.
Last time I visited though, I went for lunch with a friend and ordered the halloumi cheese and freshly made humus. It was both decent value and delicious. That said, I was equally tempted by my mate’s spicy chicken burger and nicely cooked chips with just the right amount of well-presented side salad. So often in British cafes, and with burger and chips especially, you would just get some unappetising salad plonked on your plate as an afterthought. Both our salads here were fresh and tasty.
La Pearle is located is on the Wicker in central Sheffield and stays open all day and late into the evening…so there really is no excuse not to call by and treat yourself to lunch or some cake!
