Cafe in Lincoln

About the Café

Open the ancient door to our beautiful coffee shop in Lincoln. The High Bridge, built over the River Witham in around 1160, is the only Medieval bridge in England with houses still on it. Our unique building at Stokes High Bridge Cafe Lincoln is steeped in history and has been standing tall since 1540. Visiting this place is a real experience and it's just like stepping back in time. Soak up the atmosphere as you sample a delicious brew, a mouthwatering afternoon tea or lovingly prepared meal all served by our friendly staff.

If you’re a true coffee lover you'll be spoiled for choice with our extensive and special selection of freshly roasted, single origin beans and blends. Get comfy with a smooth and creamy cappuccino, wake up with one of our fabulous filter coffees, or tickle your taste buds with something a little more unusual. We also have more than 30 loose leaf teas on the menu, from our award-winning Gold Medal Tips to the utterly unique Flo’s Mix, a true Stokes original invented way back in the 1970's by one of our long-serving waitresses.

Tuck into some proper fare at Stokes High Bridge Café Lincoln. Take your pick from our scrumptious snacks, salads and sandwiches, freshly made to order from locally-sourced ingredients. Or, if you’re after a hearty meal, why not try one of our gorgeous homemade dishes. Breakfast, luncheon and afternoon teas are served daily. We look forward to serving you soon.
