Be careful not to choke on a stray crystal

Posted on 07 / 03 / 2012

Airy Fairy is the kind of mildly ironic and humorous name an alternative, craft shop would call themselves. Hippy Dippy would be better for this place. The cafe area is so small, and the volume of crystals, wind-chimes and crafty bits so extensive, that it's a little cluttered and untidy for my taste... and suggests compromised hygiene. The food was fair, but the cafe section of the shoppe seems like an afterthought, and the oppression of hippy clutter meant I couldn't wait to finish my meal and leave.

Pros: some vegan options, staff were nice
Cons: cluttered, disorganised

i HAVE BEEN ONCE OR TWICE LATELY AND there was a lousy episode, with an employee loudly telling her boyfriend by phone "i [edit by staff]"..abysmal, caught out, and jmust a totally dire response to a kitten in the garden.
Cup of tea with soya milk is always available, the food is not cheap nor, in the main, vegan.

Cons: small, expensive, poor range of food

    the edit was the foul language by the staff member concerned, who hated cats and said she wanted to get away from it.

Nice cosy little place on the busy London Road coming out of Sheffield at the south end near Bramall Lane football ground. You walk into a shop first that sells handmade cards, crafts and trinkets (insence, scarves, ornaments, jewelry, candles, lamps etc). The cafe is at the rear and is very small with around 10 seats and a tiny kitchen area. It's a bit like what mother hubbard's kitchen could look like but in a nice way. There is a hot stove at one end keeping things warm in winter and boiling a kettle of water. The range of food is OK (paninis, sandwiches, calzones, toasted sandwiches, soups and dips). The coffee is good and there is a nice friendly local atmosphere in the place. Great for a snack and hot drink and maybe a little mooch around the shop. There are a nice selection of hand made cards at decent prices. If you're in Sheffield and make a point of going to vegetarian places then it's worth a crack.

Pros: cosy, interesting
Cons: small, limited food
