A yummy hidden little gem just off the high street in Horbury, nothing fancy/flashy looking from the outside, but inside full of complete yumminess :) Upon entering the premises, you walk into the "deli" side of the business, filled with luxury yummy cheeses, meats, pate and home baked bread. Also shelves packed with local home made yummy produce, the chilli... More

£2.90 for a warm ginger scone with butter plus a decent sized/decent tasting mug of latte - you just can't beat it. AND the coffee stayed hot right down to the bottom of the mug - you don't get that in Starbucks! Quiet unobtrusive place you could so easily miss then live to regret it. Go visit - TODAY!

Have visited here on numerous occasions. Always of a high standard. The food is delicious and the staff are always pleasant. Attached to a well stocked deli. Just what Horbury needs. Well worth a visit.

And the... More

I love this little place in Horbury - the food and service are both good and it is well worth a visit. I've always found the staff obliging and helpful and the selection of cheese, bread and other deli items extremely fresh and tasty.

Thank you for such a glowing review! We love it when children come in who are really interested in the food they are eating (or is near them, or just in general...!) and do love to answer their questions, as you know! Hopefully we'll see you soon. More
