A hidden gem!

It would be so easy to just walk past Filmore and Union in the city centre but we were so pleased that we ventured in. The small downstairs cafe/tea room was a very welcome place for tea and cake and we are so glad we found it. Only eight covers and the chairs had gorgeous wool throws for covering... read more

Lovely atmosphere. Small restaurant upstairs which is clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and polite and were very helpful in explaining which dishes could be modified to make them gluten and or dairy free. Not your traditional menu but the food tasted great and is well worth a try. Be brave ordering and try something a little different, you won't... More

The restaurant is peaceful, airy and unlike any place in York. I thought it was "trying too hard" to look and he like a California restaurant but the food was amazing. Love the soups, the avocado feta toast sandwich is to die for, oh - and the mint ginger tea - nirvana! I will definitely return - my daughter eats... More

Whilst our original venue choice was busy we decided to try something a little different However what we hadn't expected was the need to consult a financial advisor afterwards My wife ordered a Turkey burger and my choice was a special, Tagine of chicken plus a side of sweet potato wedges for the burger and a very expensive bottle of...

We breakfasted here very happily a couple of years ago but the place has developed it's offer considerably since then and, on our return to York, it was recommended to us as a dinner venue - this proved to be a very smart suggestion. The food is really imaginative, with the freshest ingredients swiftly and expertly cooked in the open... More

Just tried one of the amazing Filmore and Union hampers and couldn't be more impressed! The seared tuna salad was divine as was the blondie brownies and fresh juice. Service was amazing as always, the hamper was all ready to pick up at the appointed time and staff all very friendly and helpful. Very reasonable at £25 for two people,... More

Passing by one evening, we looked at the set menu and decided we would not eat here, because we typically don't eat dessert. A young man approached us and we explained our predicament to him, as we were really interested in the appetizers and main dishes that were on the menu. He said they would take a few pounds off...

Sat downstairs and had a very nice turkey burger and smashed avocado on toast with tea (£24 not including tip). Good service centrally placed and delicious food. Tea itself was tea bag and pretty insipid. Service good.

Always eat in Filmore and Union when I visit York. The Tuna Loin is excellent, the drinks, service, and quality of produce is exemplary. Far more than just a 'cafe', a real joy to visit.

Came here yesterday with a friend for a coffee, it's really nice that they have other vegan 'milk' choices other than soya. I chose to have almond milk in my latte which was amazing. Came back again today before work for food and drink which was amazing. It's so nice to see that York is getting better healthy vegetarian/vegan friendly... More
