We’ve picked a selection of places you may not have discovered yet. There’s something for all tastes - whether you are a coffee aficionado, a lover of brunch or you are looking for an evening out with friends.

We know there’s lots more fine food establishments in Sheffield - we couldn’t mention them all. Thank you to everyone for your hard work and for giving us a food scene to be proud of.

Tonco is a seasonal restaurant serving simple food with an emphasis on locality. The Sunday Times described them as ‘warmly ramshackle’ in a recent review.

We love this time of year because we are coming to the end of the gluts of summer. Foraged plum ketchup and local courgettes will feature strongly again on this menu. Then there’s the excitement of all the autumn squashes and root vegetables just round the corner.

Team Tonco

Tonco is based in Dyson Place off Sharrowvale road and has strong relationships with many local growers to produce their sharing plates menu.

Sheffield Organic Growers have produced some agretti (similar to samphire) especially for Tonco this year. This seasonal vegetable has featured on the menu for the past few weeks.

Tonco is a restaurant for everybody, whether you are a student with a book enjoying a couple of small plates or you want to celebrate your birthday.

New dishes coming soon will include cauliflower and salsify, and they are super excited to have a three-year old sow coming from their friend Katie at Keepers Cottage Organics.

We enjoy flat access all the way from Sharrowvale road. Our toilets are reduced mobility/disabled friendly. Pushchairs are welcome although we are a small restaurant.

Get Wurst

Get Wurst will be opening on Fargate this month as part of the new shipping container development.

Get Wurst offers a super tasty menu bringing German street food classics to the streets of Sheffield. If you want a proper currywurst, then you know where to go.

It will be a laid-back vibe down at the container park with seating to eat in or you can order anything to takeaway. There will be other street food vendors, a bar and three retail outlets - so it’s a good place to stop to get food, grab a drink or do a bit of shopping.

Get Wurst’s bestseller is currywurst with fries. A Berlin classic. Sliced bratwurst served on top of rosemary salted fries with homemade warm curry ketchup, sauerkraut and pickles. A vegan version is available.

The schnitzels and schnitzel burgers are also really popular. You can have chicken or tofu, flattened and breaded in a mix of breadcrumbs and spices and served with fries. Alternatively you can have it served as a burger topped with bacon and melted raclette cheese.

Get Wurst is located on the ground level and will be completely accessible for wheelchair users and for pushchairs. There will be toilet facilities and baby changing facilities on site.

Napoli pizza

Napoli Centro

Napoli Centro on Glossop Road offers traditional Neapolitan pizza and fritti just like you get in Naples.

They make the dough fresh daily and it’s left to prove for at least 24 hours before it becomes a pizza. Napoli Centro imports the finest ingredients from Italy including fresh fior di latte (mozzarella) twice a week.

The vibe is casual and laid back, this is a non-pretentious pizzeria. Expect funky Neapolitan rap or old-school hip hop to be playing.

Now summer is coming to an end, it’s the last couple of weeks to try certain pizzas. Including Nerano and Zucchinosa. The autumn/winter menu will be dropping soon with some amazing combinations.

We recommend the Crudo pizza. This is a margherita with fresh rocket, parma ham and parmesan shavings with a Burrata added on top.

On the side, treat yourself to a portion of fritto napoletano. This includes arancini (deep-fried risotto balls filled with mozzarella and tomato sauce), potato crocche (golden croquette filled with mozzarella) and frittatina (bucatini pasta, bechamel sauce, peas and smoked mozzarella).

Napoli Centro is accessible for disabled users and people with pushchairs. There is a disabled toilet on site.

Smorgas sandwich

Smorgas on Glossop Road (just opposite the Hallamshire Hospital) is an independent coffee house bringing a taste of Scandinavian food and culture to Sheffield.

They serve locally roasted coffee, Scandi bakes, Smorgas (Scandinavian style open-faced sandwiches), traditional Danish hotdogs and light lunches.

All the food is lovingly prepared on site, where they also bake all the cakes, cinnamon buns and bread rolls. The cinnamon buns are available from 8am every morning and sell out fast! To avoid disappointment they offer a pre-order service for collection on a Friday.

The traditional Danish hotdogs are a firm favourite and bright red in colour. Legend has it that they became popular in the late 1920s when day-old sausages that hadn’t been sold were dipped in a red dye to tell them apart from the fresh ones. These were then sold for a reduced price.

The red sausage quickly became more popular, and in the end all sausages were dipped in the red dye as people stopped buying the other ones!

The café has wheelchair and pushchair access through the front door and accessible toilet facilities. The Smorgas team are always on hand to move any furniture to make space if required.

The garden with covered seating area is also wheelchair accessible and is open all year round. Also they have free WiFi and power points for charging your devices while you enjoy a coffee or bite to eat.

Lemongrass Thai Street Food

We would recommend that you visit Lemongrass Thai Street Food in the Moor Market for its authentic Thai cuisine.

They love to chat with customers and will happily take the time to recommend a suitable dish based on your preferences. Whether you are a Thai virgin or an experienced customer who wants to try something new.

Wherever possible, Lemongrass make dishes from scratch. That includes sauces, curry pastes and even the spring rolls. They also import many ingredients fresh and direct from Thailand.

Lemongrass is a relaxed and informal culinary experience where you can eat in, takeaway or have your food delivered to your door.

There’s an extensive menu including Thai red or Thai green curry, packed full of flavour and spice. If you fancy something a little different and lighter than curry or noodles, why not try the zingy and crunchy som tam papaya salad.

There’s a wide selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. The vegan choo chi banana blossom fish is very popular. If you have room for dessert, go for the mango and sticky rice.

Lemongrass is fully disabled accessible with level access direct from the Moor and wheelchair lifts at the other two entrances. There are disabled accessible toilets, baby changing facilities and high chairs available for young children in the food court.

The adjacent multi storey car park has dedicated parking for market customers (limited to 3 hours) on floor B (Brussels) and you can scan your parking token at the information desk (middle of the market) to get a parking discount.
