Coffee Shop Tourist: The Canteen

Coffee Shop Tourist: The Canteen

As promised, here is the latest Coffee Shop Tourist post from my list of favorite places that supply me with wonderful vanilla coffee beverages.

Today’s coffee shop is The Canteen located in Old Portsmouth right on the seafront by Square Tower.

It’s relatively far from where I live, so I’m not entirely surprised that I hadn’t found this café until then. Viki, Rosalind, and I discovered it on accident while we were in the middle of a scavenger hunt.

We loved it so much we returned a few days later so we could take the time to order drinks, sit down, and properly take in the beautiful view. It was a perfect sunny day as well!

We ordered a mixture of hot chocolates and lattes and possibly some pasta salad and headed through the stone arch to find seats outside.

Indoor seating was to the left of this door but going outside on such a sunny day seemed like a better idea.

HOW COOL IS THAT?!

Careful, if you sit this close you might get splashed!

We could have easily spent several hours here. The drinks were great the sunshine was warm and if it wasn’t such a long walk from me I would go here all the time.

We explored inside as well in case we ever wanted to come back on a rainy day. Equally cute!

I highly recommend a visit! It’s beautiful and high on my favorites list for sure just because of its seaside location if not for how adorable it is.
