Fresh and local at its best

Once again, mair's did not disappoint! With a vast array of fresh, quality bread and sandwich fillings to chose from (get there early for the best selection), we opted for the sausage and bacon number for our brekkie. We ate in, amongst the shabby chic furniture and had quick, friendly service to... read more

I took a friend here for lunch. You need to allow some time because there is always a queue and the food is cooked to order but I really enjoyed my food and so did my friend. Needs more staff.

I am always surprised at how little my bill comes too given how much food I usually order... More

My dog and I have breakfast at Mairs at least twice a week, sometimes we even take another human. It's a lovely place, Lynda and Eric are so hard working and the food is excellent. It's so heartwarming to be greeted by name and I'd recommend the place the anybody. It's true that Eric's style is very individual but, frankly,... More

Visited with a friend and her dog last week. It was a lovely surprise that we were made so welcome with her dog. We both had veggie breakfasts, which were excellent value for money. The sandwiches have always been great, people that live close by are very lucky! I can't wait to visit again.

I have visited Mairs on number of occasions and have had mixed experiences. The food has always been lovely, and there is a wide selection which is of good quality. It is vastly overpriced though - a similar order in a different shop the day before cost half as much. Unfortunately, my most recent trip is likely to be my... More

An amazing delicatessen serving a massive range of hot and cold sandwiches, in addition to breakfast rolls. Quality is extremely high and the sandwiches are great value for money. A friendly welcome! A regular stopping point whenever I am in York.

Living nearby we often get sandwiches from Mairs and they are truly amazing, packed to the rafters with fillings and the cakes are pretty yummy too! Personally I have never had a problem with the service and found the owners very helpful and friendly but I do know several people who have been given short thrift for asking questions that... More
