"Ecclesall Road is a place you can visit time after time and there’s always something different to do. You can find the usual chain restaurants on this road which include KFC, Pizza Express, Nandos, and Mowgli Street Food. You can also find other Sheffield gems such as Lost & Found, Nonnas, Koko, All Siam Thai, Graze Inn and one of my favourites, Friesday Belgian Fries.

There are so many different cuisines to try out here so you're bound to find something to your taste and your budget. You can grab a drink from Coffika, Dunkin’ Donuts or even Starbucks to go along with your little thrifting adventure since there are quite a few charity shops here to explore. If you are in the area then you can also do your weekly grocery shop from Tesco Metro or Sainsbury’s Local and if you’re feeling fancy then further down there’s a Marks & Spencer foodhall and a Waitrose.

Sharrow Vale road is just behind Ecclesall Road which has cute little cafes including Eve kitchen which do the most amazing fresh doughnuts. Then you can grab an instagrammable snack from Pom’s kitchen who specialise in vegetarian and vegan food. During the winter I find myself picking a random flavour of hot chocolate from Pom’s kitchen (you’d be surprised how many they offer!) and taking it on a walk through Endcliffe Park or even through the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Both these places have easy access from Ecclesall road and a walk around this area can be really soothing no matter what the weather!"
