Best Coffee Spots in Newport

As a city on the rise, Newport’s coffee scene is ever-growing. With cosy coffee spots overlooking the river Usk or insta-worthy cafés, there is something for everyone. 

What’s more is that these top picks are all a short walk from our Newport Campus. Perfect for a pick me up in between lectures or a good way to spend a weekend morning.


Quarters Coffee

Cross the bridge to the perfect spot for a speciality coffee. Located across the river from campus, Quarters is an ideal place to visit whilst trying to meet a deadline or catching up with mates.

Watch the world go by on the terrace, enjoy a locally made cake or pop in and grab a takeaway coffee and stroll through the city.

Want to work from a different location? Quarters offers unlimited tea and coffee with Wi-Fi for £11 a day!

Coffee Thirst

Fancy a coffee and dessert? Coffee Thirst has you covered. Less than a ten-minute walk from campus you’ll find this cosy coffee shop, decorated in a shabby-chic style with comfy sofas and a new menu.

Their iced lattes and warm cookie dough will be hard to resist. And with a wide range of smoothies, too, this is the place for everyone; coffee lovers, or haters alike.

A bonus is that they also deliver straight to your door. Ideal for when the weather isn’t on your side!

Horton’s Lounge

Coffee and pizza anyone?

Cross the bridge again into coffee heaven and sample the delights of Horton’s Lounge.

Offering a plethora of different milks and flavoured syrups, Horton’s are on top of the coffee game, and as well having a brew-tiful location and relaxed vibes, they also have a very impressive food menu.

Triple Two Coffee

With a motto like “Real Food, Awesome Coffee”, it would be wrong not to add Triple Two Coffee to our top picks.

Priding themselves on updating their single origin coffee blend on a regular basis, there is always something new to try, that is sure to make you want to come back for more.

Offering milk alternative for no extra charge and with a handy coffee guide on their website, Triple Two Coffee has made great progress to demystify the world of coffee and to encourage a whole new generation of connoisseurs.

If you’re looking for an insta-worthy coffee, this is the place to be. A family run, independent coffee shop, Rogue Fox is home to robust coffee and aesthetic breakfast and lunch dishes.

Offering a coffee and a doorstop size slice of homemade cake for only £4.95, you can treat yourself without breaking the bank.

As well being the perfect coffee spot, Rogue Fox is also available to hire for parties and events (check out their website, the buffets are to die for)

This Newport treasure is open 7 days a week, so we dare you not to spend all week here!

Bar Piazza

A classic Italian coffee bar, here you’ll find the best Italian coffee Newport has to offer.

Aside from traditional coffee, they also serve a cracking hot chocolate, which is said to be very different to what we think a hot chocolate is (the suspense is killing us!)

Catering to the student customers, Bar Piazza has a £10 deal which includes a baguette, cake, and a coffee. This is a perfect lunch deal!

They also serve afternoon tea, which is filled with homemade cakes and an optional glass of fizz.
