Our mission is to bring Better Coffee and Fresh, Made From Scratch Food to Southampton. This starts with the quality of the coffee and locally sourced food that we serve, but includes our commitment to fully trained, expert baristas and chefs at each of our sites. It includes the great team that backs that up, the quality of our complementary products and the quality of our working environment. Put simply, Better Coffee is far more than just what is in your cup (though that is important). 


We also want our business to have a positive impact on our local economy and community. Which is why, whenever possible, we source locally, from within our city and county. It is why we open our doors to community events, local artists and musicians. It is why we are home to numerous entrepreneurs and students. And is why we will actively talk up our city and all that happens here. 


Back in 2013 we opened Mettricks Old Town, the first speciality coffee house in Southampton - in fact one of the first in Hampshire. Now here we are in 2021, and whilst it's been a bumpy ride, we are back making Southampton's tastiest coffees, brunches and cocktails.
