Crafts Café is in one of the nicer spots for a coffee in Hull, just opposite what is (arguably) the largest parish church in England.
There’s a small crafts shop attached, but half the ground floor and all of the sprawling upstairs are taken up with the café.
The upstairs is strangely characterless. It has a collection of small tables and chairs, probably catering for coach parties (although some interest is added with one or two murals). Still, it’s quite relaxing, and there’s no problem finding a spot to sit with a coffee and have a natter.
Plus, if you don’t believe that Hull is a nice place to go, the immediate surroundings of Crafts Café may prove you wrong.
Opposite Trinity Church.
We visited on 22 July 2006.
