Marmadukes Cafe Deli, Sheffield

The bloody weather has stepped up its game a notch, and today I warmed my cockles at Marmadukes on Norfolk Row.  This is one of those places that I've walked past many times and made a mental note to visit, but never actually gone in.  Until now!  I'm a total sucker for cute and quirky decor and this place has plenty of that so we were off to a very good start.

As part of my work for Social Sheffield, I'm putting myself out into Sheffield as the drinks guinea pig.  Basically I need to visit as many bars, cafes, pubs and restaurants as possible - I'm pretty happy with this arrangement to be quite honest.  To keep up with my discoveries remember to follow @drinksocialshef on Twitter.

This place is all about keeping things Yorkshire themed, which I like.  Tis God's own county after all!  We perused the cakes and rolls on offer but in the end opted for the leek and potato soup - I needed something warm and wintery.

The soup came in the cutest school dinner style bowls with a side helping of locally produced rye bread.  Find Marmadukes on Twitter here and Facebook here.
