Marmadukes to open new city centre café in Heart of the City
One of Sheffield’s most popular local businesses is opening a second store in the city’s transformative £470m Heart Of The City – which is designed to make local creatives a central part of the scheme.
The Scandinavian-styled venue, complete with mezzanine and outdoor terrace next to HSBC on Cambridge Street, comes just days after Swedish fashion brands Monki and Weekday confirmed moves to the Heart Of The City, providing the perfect blend of local and international in the new development.
The original Marmadukes café, which opened on Norfolk Row in 2012, will remain open for business as usual.
Hugely popular with Sheffield residents and workers, Marmadukes uses local, sustainable and ethical suppliers – such as Our Cow Molly – to make fresh coffee, salads, sandwiches and baked goods in house every day.
While still serving up its speciality coffee and homemade cakes, the new 1,500 square foot venue will have a stronger focus on its vegan and vegetarian offer as well.
“We are proud to call Sheffield our home and are excited to be playing a part in the Heart of the City regeneration scheme. It is a major development that will significantly transform this district of the city centre."Tim Nye, Owner of Marmadukes
“Marmadukes is one of Sheffield city centre’s best loved independents, so we are delighted that they are continuing to grow their business within the city centre."Councillor Mazher Iqbal, Cabinet Member for Business and Investment at Sheffield City Council
Heart of the City has momentum, with more occupier announcements in Grosvenor House anticipated soon, as well as construction getting underway on nearby Blocks B and C of the masterplan.
Proposals for the wider scheme include more modern workspaces, premium shops, urban homes, restaurants and cafes, stylish hotels and relaxing public spaces.
