and isn't extortionate. I have been going here since it first opened. I have never looked back. I love my specialty tea's and this place offers an extensive range. To go with that lovely home made sandwiches made from fresh ingredients and bread from a local bakery. Then there are the home made cakes. Ruth makes some mean homemade cakes!... More

That these guys have won multiple awards of late isn't suprising. Everything is of the highest quality. Both teas and coffees are rotated on a regular basis so there is always something new to try. The sandwiches and cakes are excellent too. Their product knowledge is first rate and I am yet to be disappointed by trying out something more... More

Fantastic little coffee shop a little off the beaten track but well worth seeking out. Great coffees, hot chocolate and lovely cakes and pastries. Nice, very cool laid back place, great indie style soundtrack in the background and papers to read. I do use other coffee shops in Harrogate - there are loads - but for me this is up... More

In my opinion this is the only place to get decent coffee in Harrogate. The couple who run it take pride in there service and beverages! The best thing about bean and bud is it's not like any other coffee house in Harrogate.... And it plays belle and Sebastian. Good taste in coffee and music. Makes a mean chai latte!

We stopped in on a whim and had coffee, tea and sandwiches. It's rare to find a place that can make coffee that doesn't require sweetening and this place is one of them. The locally sourced sandwich fillings are incredible. I absolutely loved the beetroot chutney on my ham sandwich.

Realized why it was empty but unfortunately too late. The woman behind the counter just stood there no welcome or any other conversation.Asked for coffee with cream but was... More

Little independent coffee shop in Harrogate. Have visited many times, coffee is excellent as well as sandwiches and cakes. Best time to visit is weekdays, can get very busy when you need to wait way too long for your drink. Atmosphere not the best in my opinion bit plain and boring.

Bean and Bud is a special place to go if you want coffee that is excellent. There is a board dispaying guest coffees, which are available for about two weeks. I enjoy Kenya, Ethiopian, Rwandan coffees best but I had a good Nicaraguan this week. Sandwiches and cakes are available. Always a great experience for me. Ruth and Hayden know... More

I love it that there is always a choice of two coffees and they change every week. I also love it that I can get a genuinely small cappuccino with just one shot. So often 10oz is classed as small and two shots is standard. They also have the i and Guardian newspapers, plus Harrogate Advertiser. Usually elsewhere it's the... More

Thank you for your comments, I am glad you liked our cappuccino. You raised a point about pricing, especially of the larger drinks. As you note, we change our coffees every week and we always source the very highest quality, ethically sourced speciality coffees. We taste coffees before putting them on the menu to ensure they fit with our high... More
