We had lunch in this lovely café three times during our trip to York. The café was spotless, the food and choices were great and the staff were very friendly and provided a great service. We would definitely visit here again on any future trips to York.

We stumbled by this place by accident just as we git a bit peckish in York. We were shown upstairs by very helpful friendly staff. The warm open sandwiches went down a treat.

We really fancied trying an afternoon tea when we were in York for the weekend, and when we saw the menu we liked the fact that there were various different options of cream tea. We both went for the 'posh' one at just under £13 each, which included tea, four different types of mini sandwich, three different types of mini... More
