The Barista is a coffee and sandwich shop located on Cricklade High Street on the outskirts of the Cotswolds. Cricklade is a Saxon town steeped in history and natural beauty. Cricklade's most famous attraction is North Meadow nature reserve. North Meadow, only a 10 minute walk from us, is home to the very rare & extremely beautiful snakeshead fritillery while the river Thames flows by. In fact, Cricklade is the first town on the Thames.


Here at The Barista, we pride ourselves on serving consistently great coffee. Both our house espresso & decaf alternative come from Rave Coffee in Cirencester, only 7 miles away.


You will also see that we pride ourselves on supporting local business and use local produce throughout our drinks and food menu. The cured bacon and eggs that we use even comes from the butchers next door!


As well as enjoying a delicious coffee or a satisfying lunch you may also like to browse a range of gifts available from local entrepreneurs, IndiCo & Damien Davis photography.


We offer a relaxed environment for all. We welcome cyclists, muddy boots and muddy paws.


The Barista offers great value for money with a very rewarding loyalty card and bulk discounts available for large takeaway orders and sandwich platters.


We try to cater for all dietery requirements and stock many dairy free and gluten free alternatives and most drinks are available decaffeinated. If you are unsure whether we would be able to cater for your needs please get in touch!
