A small well run cafe, with prices to suit the pocket. Not the usual Dales rip off. The staff are brilliant and so friendly.

Excellent place to pop in on your walk or at the end, (the village has a car park or people park on the side of the road,) for a quick snack, a cupper or a picnic to take away on your walk

Popped in here recently having finished the walk from Malham to Gordale Scar. A very welcome couple of sandwiches for me and my husband. Nothing fancy, but tasty nonetheless and washed down with a couple of cappuccinos. Pleasant staff and reasonably priced.

That's the sign outside the door. It's good to know that a cafe welcomes walkers. A beautiful area to walk to Malham Cover or Gordale scar or both. Good food and a nice cuppa is welcome after a walk.

Finished the 4 and a bit walk around Malham Cove so needed a sit down and a place to dry out! Picked this place out as it welcomed muddy boots. Lovely friendly staff, good choice of food and drinks. Had the cream tea, well you have to don't you! Very good value. Free wifi as well.
