I love visiting Utopia for the best goats cheese and roasted vegetable panini. Also the sticky toffee pudding cake is amazing. It comes as quite a large slice so maybe best shared with a friend.

The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is lively and the surroundings are very quirky with mismatched furniture and decor. It gets very busy at times but well worth walking 10 seconds away from the main high street as it's so much nicer than your typical chain coffee shops. I'd definitely recommend stopping by and supporting such a wonderful independent local coffee shop.

Avoid the chains , this is a little gem , great quirky decor and if your on your own a book or 2 to thumb through its squeezed in between other well known brands . They roast and grind thier coffee onsite and the smell is great so much fresher than the mass produced stuff next door ,if your suffering from a few to many sherbs the night before they do a damm fine Americano and Bacon Sarney cure and they will bring it to the table with a smile , happy days ! ,good line in cakes and panninis as well , they also sell freshly ground coffee to take away and use in the drip machine at home , perfect .

Walk past CostaBucks and head for Utopia. Excellent ambience and décor upstairs and downstairs. Great food, teas and coffee ........wonderful selection of cakes. One of the best coffee bars I've been to - it must be the finest in Southend.
