We had high hopes for this place as a couple of people in our party had dinned here before, on arriving we were seated straight away and upon being given our menus we were informed what was not available that evening it being only 7.30 in the evening we were surprised that so many options were unavailable. Unfortunately for me... More

We as a group of six, popped into this little gem, for a coffee on a very cold evening. It was a good choice. We all had a very hot tasty coffee, and after seeing the lovely looking raspberry muffins for sale, had those as well. They looked quite doughy , but were really light to eat and full of... More

Ended up having a last minute trip to York without the kids and after a very quick search on-line for somewhere that serves gluten free food, we found this place. We were seated next to the window overlooking the old town and things could not have been better. The waiting staff were excellent, the food is to die for and... More

The cappuccino is very good (and they do have skimmed milk) as are the muffins and scones (particularly good with yoghurt and fruit compote). The cappuccino is not cheap, at £2.90 a cup. Other problems at this cafe are the NOISE (from staff dealing with crockery in and out of the dishwasher?) and the COLD air from outside (the door... More

Very nice selection of good, healthy food - good portion size and well presented. Nice ambiance with relaxing background music. Very friendly service. Only open for a few evenings so far - and I'm sure as we move move nearer to Christmas it will get busier as people realise it is open in the evenings.

Not sure this place would survive the way it currently is. It's not very inviting - very bright, wooden floors and noisy atmosphere. It's like sitting in a shop window! The manager - if that's who it was - seemed to not know that their voice carried around the whole cafe. The food was just OK but expensive for what... More

Recently opened branch in Skipton. Clean, bright decor, but the painted wooden floors and no soft furnishings makes for a rather noisy, echoey interior, which along with the too-loud music and piercing voice of the manager organising the staff and customers did not make a relaxing atmosphere. Pots of plastic herbs on the tables would be better replaced with fresh.... More

Isn't it an annoying feature of this country that tearooms seem to want to close at 4pm - we really have no idea how to cater for visitors and York is no exception.
