I was pleasantly surprised at the number of new coffee shops in Lincoln.

What is good news is to see that indie coffee shops have got in first, rather than aggressive chains and peddlers of bad coffee like Costa and tax dodger Starbucks.

Café 44 in Sincil Street, art by Phil Martin on the walls, quality fairtrade coffee from Stokes.

Oliver’s coffee shop in The Strait, nicely done out, but not always open.

Modern Classics, a little further up The Strait than Olibers, an unfortunate garish sign outside, inside very retro, more of a traditional café than a coffee bar, fresh made cakes, locally sourced food, Stokes coffee.
