Not bad but not good.

Service a little on the slow side. Ordered minted pea soup, which took a while to arrive. Although it was a refreshing change not to be served a soup you can stand your spoon up in, this soup not only looked watery, it didn't have strength of taste either (one might suspect that it could have... read more

I've had excellent service and drinks here before so why not go again? There are major renovations going on with extending the premises (which is a great opportunity) and that does impinge on the usual quietness. That said, extra heaters keep things comfortable. Today may be a one off and I hope so. I requested an Americano with cream. Ah... More

We love Helmsley and decided to pay another visit, stopping once again for lunch at this lovely cafe. After looking at the excellent menu we both decided on the soup. I had the vegetable (which came with a big chunk of wholemeal bread) and my husband had sweet potato & pepper along with a BLT sandwich. This was an excellent... More

Helmsley has a lot to offer the day visitor, but we were nearing the end of our cyce ride and needed to warm up with tea and cake. The service was just right, and the cheese scone & very generous fruit cake were delicious. Yorkshire tea to add the right accompaniment made this a very relaxing, warming, tasty stop-off.

This little coffee shop was really nice and i enjoyed coming here. I have to say the food was delicious but the Deluxe Hot Chocolate was the best hot chocolate i have ever had in my life! It was also nice as the dog was allowed downstairs. The service was really good and i would love to come here again... More

Lovely warm welcome, great food and best of all the dog was allowed in downstairs, a huge bonus on a damp day, he was even given his own bowl of water. Would thoroughly recommend this cafe
