Delicious Caramel Shortbread

Called in for a drink and a cake. Caramel shortbread was very tasty and a good size. Fruit scone was very nice with jam full of fruit. Good value.

Randomly chose this place whilst passing through, decided to sit inside out of the wind. This was a bad choice inside is very noisy with the "kitchen area" open to the seating, lots of cups and cutlery banging and staff rushing about. Chap serving was pleasant enough but the other staff seemed surly and the young girl offhand. Prices aren't... More

went in to Porters for a quick sandwich at lunchtime and chose one from the chill cabinet, they took it from me when I ordered a drink and paid so I thought it would just be brought when the drink was ready. I had thought the price was a bit on the high side but the surroundings were bright and... More

Went in for lunch as we were coming to the end of our stay. You choose the sandwich you wish to have and then they plate it for you with a lovely salad garnish (very tasty!). The staff are very friendly and attentive!! Would highly recommend, you could tell all the sandwiches were fresh just with the quality of them!!!

We have visited this coffee shop in the past however we hadn't sampled their coffee. Yesterday we saw the sign for "Sicilian coffee" so went in and ordered two decaffeinated coffee's. Too say we were disappointed is an understatement, it was weak and tasteless, more like very hot water with a dash of cream,it was that bad. On this occasion... More

A lovely warm welcome and very accommodating (we had a pushchair). I had the Lemon Meringue pie - divine. The pastry melted in the mouth, the lemon custard was creamy and dreamy and the meringue light and fluffy with a light crisp. My other half had the caramel apple tart and he was equally impressed. We don't visit Helmsley often... More

My boyfriend and I have coffee here every weekend now and we are always very impressed with the food and service. We usually have coffee (mochas), a cheese scone, and a toasted teacake. We will often get the soup (depend on flavour, which is usually different every week, ranging from vegetable to pea and ham to tomato and bacon and... More

In a small town with so many coffee shops we found that the personal service in Porters really helped to make it stand out. Everyone there was friendly and polite which really helped to differentiate it from the many other coffee shops. The coffee was good and the scones excellent!

We called in to Porters in Helmsley for a coffee and sit down . We were amazed by the warmth of the welcome from all of the staff ,Sunday papers were offered together with home made scones and imported French butter. The coffee was superb. This is simply the nicest place to spend time people watching and enjoying the wonderful... More
