Hull Spotlight: Two Gingers


It wasn't going to be long before yet another coffee shop snuck its way into my Hull Spotlight series (Hull is full of gems) and this month it's the turn of Two Gingers. It's in Paragon Arcade directly opposite the Magpie's Den, which I featured last month (here). It's only been open a couple of months, but already seems to have a large and loyal following (if following is the right word - custom?) and I can see why. Hull is crying out for more places like this - little unique Instagrammable places that serve great coffee. 

And Two Gingers definitely serves great coffee. I mean, just look at it. As well as looking pretty and providing an aesthetically pleasing little square for my Instagram grid it also tastes great. It's just the right strength (for me anyway) - quite strong but not at all bitter. I actually had my coffee made with oat milk and I'm so pleased that somewhere has started doing a tasty milk alternative in Hull - what's with all the soya milk? It's gross and all the other coffee shops need to take a leaf out of Two Gingers' book. It's a very small place so it doesn't serve hot food, but there is a range of cakes and snacks to make the perfect little accompaniment to your drink. I've heard very good things about the veggie sausage rolls, although not tried them myself yet!





Paragon Arcade is a gorgeous little place so it's the perfect setting for a little coffee shop. Inside the shop the aesthetic is quite minimalist - white walls, wooden seats and plenty of plants. Basically my dream place. It's quite small so I imagine it gets full quite quickly, but they do takeout too. If you're lucky enough to get a seat there's a lovely skylight at the back of the shop, which creates the most beautiful shadows and makes you feel like you're sitting outside. As well as serving coffee they also sell a few gorgeous pieces of marble goodness (e.g. these plant pots) by Paige Cavill Designs - I love cafes that also sell things by local artists, it's always nice to see small businesses supporting each other isn't it?

I believe the name Two Gingers came about because of the two owners' hair colour, but the reason I love it (which is essentially very sad) is because of my cats - because yes, they are two gingers. And yes, I know I'm a crazy cat lady.

Have you visited Two Gingers yet?
