The Coffee House Durham

“Picturesque” is the word that comes to mind when visiting the Coffee House Durham. What’s odd because there is very little to visually view apart from the world passing you buy. Situated near the Gala Theatre on Millennium Place it is a perfect place to either stop before you see a show or after a show.

I personally like sitting in the sunshine of their outdoor seating area whilst drinking a blueberry smoothie and relaxing to the sound of cars and people pass me buy. At the door their current 10% off for student offer is proudly displayed. Once you are through the décor is pleasant. There is an array of differing seating options.

Most of the seating is ordinary café style seating with a small round black table encompassed by dark wood chairs. Along the far wall on the left for the entrance the seating is more cosey with sofa seats in pink. Along the front window is a bench with high stood to sit at. The counter is situated to the northwest of the entrance.

If you follow the carpet, you should be able to find the counter. There is a beautiful array of choices to choose from at the counter and so ordering from there is not a problem. Their fridge houses some of their more healthier options including yogurt and fresh fruit.  Once you have ordered and you are seated the staff serve you your food and, or drink.

Due to the windows there is allot of natural light within the building. Furthermore the lighting itself makes the place an easy to navigate area. There are also leaflets on the  table sometimes offering a service or advertising for the Durham escape rooms.


There is only one toilet in the building and it is the accessible one. Whilst it is a little narrow there are helpful handy holds to pull down whilst transferring ones self onto the toilet. Furthermore whilst the staff are not specifically autism or dementia trained they re happy to help wherever they can. The floor is a mix of dark plain wood and dark carpet. I doubt that this will course any issues for those with dementia. However the coffee and smoothie machine is pretty loud. Whilst there is no braille menu the staff are happy to read it out to you. The staff are also happy to help you find a seat if you have any mobility issues.
