For many of us, the first thought that goes through our head when having a coffee is getting it down you so you can finally wake up, but for others, its “how good would this look on my Instagram?” – at least that’s the case at one of Sheffield’s most loved independent coffee shops, Steam Yard.
Steam Yard in Sheffield has been officially named the most Instagrammed independent coffee shop in the UK, winning the title based on new research by Shredall SDS Group.
The research found Steam Yard had a whopping 8,345 Instagram posts published by other users, in comparison to other independents – even in big cities such as London.
The research collated data around how popular establishments were based on how many posts were created about them on social media, with Steam Yard topping the list (even with competition such as runner up Palm Vaults in London!).
Here’s the top 10 in full:
- Steam Yard, Sheffield
