Popped in here with the wife for a quick lunch when visiting Derby recently. The girl who served us was very freindly and the whole place was welcoming but had a relaxed feel about it. We both had sandwiches and coffee which I found to...More

My sister and husband both said these milkshakes were the best they ever had, pure ice cream and fruit. The salads were also top of the range as we're the cupcakes

Thank you, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. We love 'proper' milkshakes too so we always put 4/5 scoops of ice cream in (depending on the flavour) so they are nice and thick =)

I happened across this place on a scorching Saturday while my wife shopped in Westfield over the road. Equator has a cool, big city feel so sorely lacking in any of the other coffee places I saw on my (admittedly brief) trip to Derby. The...More
