Everything you need to know about Kommune Sheffield’s Castlegate food hall – details, traders, opening times, address and upcoming events
What to Expect at Kommune Sheffield
Kommune is an innovative concept bringing together some of the most acclaimed, independent kitchens, brewers and retailers in a unique, urban space. This new meeting place is home to a diverse choice of great tasting food, an artisanal bakery and specialty coffee, independent retail and an iconic bar.
The people behind Peddler, Tamper and Depot Bakery have joined forces with Kollider Projects to create the 16,000 square foot Castlegate food hall on the upper ground floor of the former Co-op department store, inside Castle House. The new Scandi inspired food hall, is in the same vein as similar venues in other cities, such as Manchester’s Mackie Mayor, and will open its doors early every morning to the aromas of Tamper’s coffee and Depot Bakery’s freshly baked croissants.

Fat Hippo specialise in the good kind of gluttony, making indulgent burgers that leave your fingers messy and your belly full. Born from a love of great burgers in a small restaurant in Newcastle, Fat Hippo have grown into a family of restaurants and a talented team with a borderline unhealthy obsession with burgers. They constantly look for ways to deliver more than just a mouthful. With gourmet toppings and quirky combinations, their burgers are anything but basic.
Yoki add their healthy, colourful and exciting Korean soul food to the mix.
Chaat Cart – After winning the Manchester Food and Drink Festival’s best street food award Chaat Cart have had a successful year and are excited to be part of Kommune Sheffield.
Describing the Chaat Cart menu, owner Aarti Pandey described the menu as “an evolution of her street food journey, mixing snacks typically sold from roadside stalls, small plates
showcasing home-style south Indian cooking, with more refined supper club favourites drawing on India’s hunting and fishing traditions”.

Tamper Coffee will focus on speciality coffee to keep you sufficiently caffeinated all day long.
Kelham Island favourite The Depot Bakery focuses on a new and unique range of patisserie products alongside a few of the Depot classics we all love. So if it’s a freshly baked pastry on your way to the office in the morning or a black forest eclair with your afternoon coffee, there will be some form of amazing sweet treat to see you through the day. Of course, their artisan bread will be on sale for you to take home too.
MorMor cook up a contemporary mix of Middle Eastern, North African and Mediterranean street food with an abundance of veggie and vegan options as well as meaty choices too.
Baked in Brick are last but most definitely not least with the all-time crowd pleaser – pizza. They use local and premium ingredients on top of freshly proved dough to make some top-notch pizza.
The Department of Drinks
Sitting alongside these incredible kitchens is the Department of Drinks – the bar run by Kommune that wraps around the iconic staircase at the heart of the building. The bar line up seeks to impress with a permanent selection of Freedom brewery beer that is brilliantly balanced, free from animal products and brewed with a conscience as well as some continually changing guest taps. The wine list is varied hitting some of those all-time favourites. Along with some more contemporary wines and fizz. The cocktail list is exciting, with a cocktail inspired by each of the traders as well as some classics, and a separate aperitivo menu. For those of you preferring the 0% route, we assure you, you won’t be ordering a lemonade when you see the list of house-made cordials and sodas.
