Quirky but nice

We popped in here one afternoon when visiting Pickering, it is a bit out of the way but worth the effort. A lot of knitting on display but this adds to the charm. The cake was nice as was the tea and coffee. Well worth a visit if in town

Had a couple of hours in Pickering and discovered this gem of a coffee shop. The shop also sells knitting wool, patterns etc. and hosts "knit and natter" sessions. Very unusual and interestingly different. Excellent toasted fruit bread and quite the best coffee latte I have ever tasted.

Called in today, little choice being New Years day, this tea shop is a combined wool/knitting shop and tea room, unique perhaps. Menu is very limited, 3 choices of sandwich and various cakes/scones..hot and cold drinks. Service and food was prompt and good, nice china tea ware. Prices we're on par, apart from the Yorkshire brack and cheese at £3.30... More

We had a very enjoyable cream tea and a pleasant chat with the owners. A "must visit" if you're a knitter.

Lovely cafe up a side street in Pickering which we revisited when attending the Railway in Wartime Event in the town this October. Again decorated in keeping with the 40s era though thankfully the food wasn't rationed! Pleasant helpful staff and able to provide some gluten and dairy free alternatives, a lovely fruit cake on this occasion. A knitting club... More

Must be one of the best cafes in Pickering, great service in a tranquil setting. We had an excelent cup of tea and sandwiches served with salad and crisps. The ladies in the shop where very friendly and helpful to my wife in her search for wool and patterns. You must visit this cafe if only to use the last... More

We stopped here for a cuppa and a sandwich while visiting Pickering for the day. The lady, who I believe to be the owner, was very friendly and our drinks and sandwiches were delicious and nicely presented with a side salad and crisps. A novel shop as it sells wool and has knitting groups on certain days. Well worth a... More

We arrived in Pickering after a long drive and after a short wander came to Poppies. It combines a wool shop with serving hot drinks and cakes with people sitting knitting (and I loved the loo which was housed in a posh little garden shed). It was utterly delightful and like something out of a BBC Sunday evening drama -... More

I had a lovely Gluten free cake and filter coffee, excellent! I also had a natter with the two ladies working in there and they were so hospitable. I bought a lovely blue tea cosy that they had knitted. my husband had a delicious scone with cream and home made Rhubard/Ginger jam. Lovely homely place.

I popped in to Poppies last week while on holiday in Pickering for some 'me time' while the grandparents had my boys. It was delightful, I had a delicious scone with cream and jam and a pot of tea for only £3.95. I sat and read my book for an hour and the lady was ok with that. You can... More
