Great little coffee shop in Lichfield!

Great choice of food and coffee - light snacks, great service and comfortable informal atmosphere. Accommodating for children too!

This was one of their evening events but the enthusiasm of the management team and the commitment of the performers was brilliant. This has been an excellent addition to the Lichfield scene.

Have visited spark many times and it never fails to delight! The menu all looks delicious but I struggle to not have the same as always because the steak and onion sandwich is sooo nice. Also the cakes look amazing but I'm always too full to try one 😉 The Spark has a relaxed atmosphere with board games and magazines... More

We love stopping by here for a coffee and sandwich. Simple menu, nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. We also went to a night function they had there with a ukulele band, which was fantastic fun.... Menus again were simple but sufficient.

Like other reviewers, we had always wanted to try this place but it had always been too busy on previous occasions. We were lucky today and got a lovely table near the window. We liked the light, airy feel of the space and the fact that they don't pack the tables in too close to one another. We ordered coffee... More

This was my first successful visit to The Spark, I have been meaning to go here for some time but it is usually packed, however last Saturday I was lucky. It is one of the many coffee shops in Lichfield, the difference is this one has really fresh coffee and fresh cakes; this may be due to the fast turnover... More

We regularly visit for lunch or just coffee. Delta and her team are simply delightful, she has a knack for recruiting like minded staff who go about making you feel welcome without being over familiar and gushing. Food is always excellent. Not the cheapest but if you want cheap there are plenty of other places. Not for us though -... More

Great Cafe in the heart of the city, with great style and atmosphere, the menu is innovate and has changed a few times since I started going, this keeps it fresh and vibrant. There are lot of evening events on with live bands too. So sign up as it gets booked very quickly.
