I couldn't say that this is the best places for coffee in Huddersfield, as I haven't been to every place in Huddersfield that serves coffee, but it's probably the place that I've enjoyed going to the most in HUddersfield for coffee.
Like everywhere there's the occasional blip - e.g. a cappiccino that's too weak or lukewarm, but on the whole the coffees consistently good. The Americano, which is the easiest to get right (other than espresso) is consistently good enough to drink black with no sugar (a rare occurence here in the uk), and, unlike Costa and Nero, does not expose a frequent over-extraction of the espressos used to make it. The Coopers coffee seems consistently strong enough without this.
I would reserve 5 stars for a place that uses genuinely freshly roasted coffee, but as these are almost non-existent in this country, most places could never have 5 stars from me - however, due to the nice interior and friendly prompt service, four stars in the next best thing I can give.
This is, though, purely on the coffee (it is a coffee shop after all), rather than the food as well - given that I've never had any - but what I can say is that what I've seen other people eat looks very nice (salads, soups paninis etc.).
I can recommend this place a lot, but please don't follow my advice and go - it will make the place more crowded and spoil the peacefulness of my morning coffee!
