Breakfast and Brunch

Whether you are up bright and early ready to get to work and give it all you’ve got; or you’re hoping to enjoy a late brunch with your nearest and dearest, we want to make sure your first meal of the day is full of goodness and flavour!


The occasional sweet treat in the morning can be the little pick-me-up that we need to get our positive energy flowing. Pancakes are the perfect way to achieve this! Drizzled with fruit, maple syrup and whipped cream, they are a vibrant way to start your day!


According to the NHS website, one of the healthiest ways to eat eggs is to poach them, and we have a variety of ways to enjoy this delicious breakfast. From Eggs Benedict to Eggs Florentine, you can take your pick!

To understand a little more about the benefits of eggs, it’s worth mentioning that they are full of nutrition, including:

  • Protein
  • Vitamins A, D, B2 and B12
  • Folate
  • Iodine

Breakfast Baguettes

What better way to enjoy brunch than having all your favourite breakfast ingredients in a convenient baguette? Choose between delicious crispy bacon or succulent sausage and get fueled up to embrace your day!

Our breakfast baguettes are for those who want to start the day with comfort and warmth!

Avocado and Sourdough

If you prefer plant-based ingredients, our avocado and sourdough breakfast is perfect for those who love to feel light and refreshed from their food! Finished off with beautiful tomatoes and chilli flakes for an added oomph, this delicious and nutritious breakfast is also fit for vegans!

Avocados are perfect for including in a morning meal because they provide lots of energy for the day ahead. In fact, 80g of avocado provides 152Kcal as well as 5g of protein. The benefits don't stop there; it also contains:

  • 6g fibre
  • 360mg potassium
  • 6g fat
  • 5g carbohydrates
  • 56mg of vitamin E

Grab-and-Go Snacks

Moving from place to place, sometimes eating while on the move is the only option during a hectic day! Here at Esquires Coffee, we don't think quick food needs to be bland or unhealthy!

We have plenty of delicious foods on offer that is not a delight to snack on wherever you find yourself, but also nutritious!

We always love it when our customers sit in with us, but when this isn’t possible, much of the Esquires menu is also available to take away, so you can have your favourite Esquires Coffee treats with you wherever you need them to be!


Granola provides a little boost of energy that is ideal for trying to balance a healthy diet while living in a fast-moving environment!

So how does granola provide energy? Granola is a beautiful mix of:

  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Oats
  • Dried fruit

Many of these ingredients, such as oats, are high in protein and are packed with nutritional value, including:

  • Antioxidants
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  • Phosphorus
  • Healthy fats (when eaten in moderation)

The delicious combination can be pulled together with sugar or honey to create a handy little granola bar, so it can also appease a sweet tooth instead of heading straight to the biscuit tin!

Don't fancy it in a bar? No problem, have it in its purest form with some yoghurt!


Sometimes we want something to give us a push of energy, but a dense snack isn't what we are always craving. Instead, we desire something light and refreshing. That's where our delicious smoothies step in to save the day!

Most of our freshly made smoothies are blended with apple juice. We have many combinations of fruity ingredients for you to choose from. A few of our favourites include,

Berry burst for when you want something sweet! As you have guessed, this smoothie is packed with delicious berries, including blackcurrants, blueberries and blackberries! Not forgetting a banana too!
Green Reviver for the ultimate health kick! It combines kale, mango, banana and lemongrass.
Pineapple Sunset is ideal for when you want to recreate the freeing feeling of being on holiday. A beautiful blend of pineapple, mango, and papaya is a great way to reinvigorate your body and soul!

Croissants and Pastries

A croissant is the perfect pastry to accompany a warm and soothing coffee in the morning, or at any time of day! We think it makes the ideal partner for a coffee, and it can be quickly eaten when on the move.

Sweet Treats

We all deserve a sweet treat now and again, and there isn’t a better way to enjoy it than with a hot cuppa. Whether you are a tea lover, coffee fiend or hot chocolate enthusiast, our extensive range of sweet biscuits, cakes, and pastries are sure to tempt you. We share some of our favourites below.

Ciao Affogato

If you love to indulge, this one’s for you. Our delectable Ciao Affogato is one of the newest sweet offerings in our range of sweet treats.

If you’re not familiar with Italian, ‘affogato’ means drowned, and we have a delicious vanilla ice-cream based dessert that is covered in a shot of our renowned Fairtrade espresso. Oh, and then finished off with a drizzle of Fairtrade chocolate sauce.


We can’t help but think of ourselves as a leading light of traybakes. Each of our stores has its favourites, and there are plenty to choose from.

Our homemade triple chocolate brownie or rocky road is a must-eat for chocolate lovers!

Fancy something more biscuit based? Our caramel shortbread is a classic amongst those with a soft spot for sweetness.

Still not quite what you’re after? Check out your local Esquires Coffee shop menu to see what is on offer near you.


If you want something sweet but not too sweet, a scone is the ideal sweet snack. A traditional but nonetheless exciting way to enjoy your cup of tea is with a scone. You may prefer it with plain butter or you can pamper yourself with cream and jam; pick your fancy and enjoy!

Vegan Alternatives

Our coffee shops are a place for everyone to enjoy, and we love thinking of creative food alternatives. If you’re after brunch, lunch or fancy a quick snack, our vegan options are sure to get your taste buds tingling!

Full Vegan Brekkie

Our full vegan breakfast is filled with delicious energy, providing foods to get you pumped for the day ahead! This colourful breakfast is a favourite amongst those who are after a dairy and meat-free start to their day.

Vegan Sausage Roll

Freshly baked in-store, the instant smell of our vegan sausages rolls will have you craving one, whether you live by a vegan diet or not!

Thanks to the nutritious vegan sausage at the centre, you can be sure to get your fix of protein. Our vegan sausage roll also contains fewer carbohydrates and saturated fat compared to the standard pork-based version. What's not to like?

Sweet Alternatives

We love sweet treats, and just because dairy isn't the shining star in some of our classic cakes and biscuits, it doesn't make them any less delicious!

Each one of our Esquires Coffee stores offers some vegan treats for you to dive into. One of our ultimate favourites is our vegan Bakewell tart. Why not check our vegan alternatives at your closest Esquires Coffee shop?
