Visited 28th september for a couple of lattes, walked in, sat down, waitress came over and took our order and made the drinks very quickly and brought them to our table. A very pleasant experience unlike some other coffee shops in Thirsk! I'll be back again. Keep up the good work!

This is the best place to eat in Thirsk. The service and food are excellent. My wife had the burrito and really wasn't expecting the excellent dish she had. The staff are friendly and efficient. Can't say much more than that.
