The rather faded "In a nutshell" on Chesterfield road was there for as long as I can remember, and was a great place for veggies and health food fans to grab a few essentials. Unfortunately though as time went on, the lady who owned it grew older and more tired and with it, grumpy. It was because of this that I didn't care too much for the shabby little shop with its worn around the edges sign and staff.
But all this has changed!
The brand new "The Incredible Nutshell" comes with a huge array of exciting new ingredients and enthusiastic and friendly staff too! It's spacious and well organised produce is appealing to the eye and tummy, plus its vintage décor really adds a characteristic charm to the place, and the unusual window display really catches peoples eye and draws them inside.
The new owner is keen to keep things as local as possible, from the fresh cat lane bread, to rescue battery hens eggs from a local lady and another Pakistani woman from the refugee centre at st marys who makes authentic onion bhajis. They are looking into adding honey and organic vegetables to the exciting range of foods including the more adventurous ingredients such as sumac, miso and coconut oil. Certainly a wider range compared to your usual health food store.
Plus they are the only place in Sheffield to sell happy kitchen brownies, my favourite! Get yourself down there, if it's sunny then take a seat outside and enjoy a cat lane scone or authentic Pakistani bhaji washed down with a refreshing healthy drink.
