Came across this place by accident. Quite a small cafe which doubles as a knitting/craft shop. The staff are friendly and efficient. The menu is quite limited but don't let this put you off. We ordered sandwiches which came with salad garnish. These were some of the tastiest freshest sandwiches we have been served in a long while. Tea was... More

A bit off the beaten track but well worth a drop in for a brew and a cake. It was quiet when we visited but nevertheless, a nice place to be. Service was efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them. The cakes were varied but very tasty. Tea and coffee was served in china cups and saucers which... More

My husband & I came across this lovely cafe whilst on our short stop in Pickering. The staff were very friendly, the food excellent and the fact they also sold wool added to the atmosphere. We both had ham sandwiches, served with salad and crisps, and a lovely cup of tea. Very enjoyable lunch.

A few yards off the main street but well worth the small detour. The service was friendly and prompt and we can thoroughly recommend the scones and tuna sandwiches. Really good tea, as well, and plenty of it. If you're also in the market for knitting essentials, this is definitely the place to visit!

The cafes further down the high street were packed so I kept wandering up until i found something with a seat. I'm so glad I did. It's a delightful knitting plus food shop - great atmosphere and friendly people. I had a plate of ham sandwiches with salad and a mug of coffee. It was nicely prepared and a reasonable... More

During a recent trip to England, I stopped here for a quick lunch. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was very quaint; it was like stepping back in time a few decades! The owner, Tracy, was extremely friendly and helpful. Although I wasn't in need of them, I understand that their gluten-free offerings are very popular; a... More

A quaint little teashop, if nothing out of the ordinary. We had a pot of earl grey and a slice Victoria sponge each, which was tasty and just what we needed. The service was ok, although I didn't find it over friendly. The wool shop incorporated is an original and clever concept. A relaxing and unhurried experience.

Poppies is a bit like the North Yorkshire Moors Railway- it preserves something of the past whilst offering excellent service. Inside there is a cosy traditional feel, with small round tables decked with lovely old tablecloths, service is at the table, and welcoming but not over friendly. The best thing about the cafe is the way they have left the... More
