The Sound Cafe – The Sound (obvs)

That view is like something off a sci-fi movie, no? The pics might not be great if Manannan’s got his cloak on but still, this is a great little spot for a day out down south.

Tea evolution – Douglas

When talking instagramable hotspots, this one take the biscuit (or tapioca pearls) because Tea Evolution has… a flower wall. Yes, the perfect aesthetic backdrop for any beverage shot. It’s the latest edition to Dougy high street and people are love’n it! Queues out the door since 12pm apparently, but it goes down quick.

The coffee art, the freshly baked goods and their location on North Quay makes Noa’s a weekend classic (and week day classic, in fact they’re an all-rounder). Interested in the success story of Noas? You can read all about it here.

Hey Coffee Lovers….. we've got some good news, no great news! As of tomorrow we are opening for take away coffee and cake, every day 9am to 1pm at Noa Market Hall, North Quay! If you're popping to the shops, drive by the quay and grab a coffee to go, on your way! If you're working from home, take a slightly longer detour for your coffee for the ultimate recharge! If you're homeschooling, f……flip you deserve it! If you're working in town, you know the nightmare of road works, one way streets, lack of access to great coffee, come and get a coffee from the people who love coffee! We'd love to see you. If you're retired, or person of leisure, come and cheer us up! It's beginning to feel a bit like normal (disclaimer; new normal) Bakehouse team #coffeelover #coffee #takeaway #takeawaythepain #caffeine #lover #manx #local #independant #cofferoaster #isleofman @noabakehouseiom

Hopefully this has given you some inspo on where you can go eat, drink, snap and spend local now we’re opening back up. If you think there’s anywhere insta worthy that we missed, be sure to tag us in your pics! We’re always looking for new places to check out.

Happy weekend!
