THE city has no shortage of excellent cafes and coffee shops to enjoy a hot drink and a cake.

Worcester even has several quirky cafes, including coffee boats, jungle-themed streamers, and 1930s railroad decor.

Now that Easter is right around the corner and the weather seems a little dull, we’ve compiled a list of some of Worcester’s quirkiest cafes.

Perfect for a rainy day but also ideal for a quick coffee break from the sun on a hot day.

Francini Coffee From Colombia

This city cafe has been dubbed a coffee lover’s dream and the quirky decor only makes the experience even better.

One diner said: “Lovely original coffee, had one of the best lattes I’ve had in ages! Great quality, great friendly service and the coffee certainly delivers.

“We also had olive bread with buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes…simply delicious! We will definitely be back.

Ditch those run-of-the-mill coffee chains and support this lovely family business, you won’t be disappointed. »
