Nice place to sit in the back - small garden. Had the crab soup, which was okay and a curry chicken sandwich and hummus plate. Coffee was above average. Fine place for lunch in a pleasant environment, friendly people, including the other diners.

They are great for just coffee or a light lunch. Nice garden area outside. Make a great egg salad sandwich. They have specials that are great too.

Very good coffee, I'll say that. I'm not a fan of the burned beans style of coffee and thankfully this is not that. Just good tasting coffee. The pastries are also good even though I thought it was a little weird that they are all individually wrapped in saran in the display case. I found the hot food to be... More

During strolls through Olde New Castle, my wife and I frequently stop into the Traders Cove Coffee Shop for a bite and something warm to drink. The pastries are out of this world and the staff could not be any friendlier. If you journey into Olde New Castle, you must try this Coffee Shop out.

Oh my favorite coffee shop in the Historic New Castle area. Has a charming back yard eating area. There are all sorts of pastry and bakery delights; light sandwiches. A good place to take a break from walking the Historic City of New Castle, the Battery, and having a coffee or an alcoholic beverage. Could it be more fun since... More

This is one of my favorite places in town for a cup of coffee or a light meal. Great atmosphere and friendly baristas. Love to sit outside in the courtyard in nice weather, and they are pet friendly! Highly recommend stopping by if you are in town.
