Here's what your favourite Sheffield Magazines are saying about Cafe Totem

Sheffield boasts a huge back catalogue of trendy independent magazines and publications. From the omnipotent local music bible of EXPOSED to the cage-rattling honesty of RGM: Magazine. We've compiled a list of our favourite quotes from our favourite magazines on everything Totem, be it pizza or drink offers, to club nights and gigs.

The Tab: Sheffield Student Guide.

"Whether you're wanting somewhere to work other than the library, or get two shots in for a quid, Totem will serve a range of purposes come the new uni year" - on our VIP cards

"Cafe Totem is a unique place. The music is diverse – from ABBA to Arctic Monkeys – and it has a very vintage atmosphere, with old wireless radios, old cash registers and a working jukebox.

There's fairy lights, Polaroid pictures and special Sheffield-themed artwork, and up-cycled furniture. It definitely has that grungy, punk rock, aesthetic vibe going on, making it the perfect place for gigs and pre-drinks." - On pizza

RGM: Reyt Good Magazine

"You and your best mate thirsty for a cheap night out?

Say no more! From the 1st of September with our VIP cards you and your friend can grab 2 bottles of Budweiser and 2 shots for just £5." - On our VIP card offer

EXPOSED Magazine

 "If local music and boozing with your friends sound like your idea of a good night (why wouldn’t it?) then head down to Café Totem" - On having a good time


You heard it from the best folks, we're open from 12pm, Monday to Saturday. Catch you for a tasty pizza or a couple of drinks.
