Helmsley's favourite cafe

This is where the locals go to meet for a coffee. Need I say more? Helmsley has an abundant supply of cafes but this is the one to choose. The owner - Monica - is a great host and the atmosphere is always friendly and welcoming. A great place for a chat.

A very nice lunch on a sunny but cold spring day. One of us had a lovely toasted sandwich and salad and the other had a giant date scone with homemade raspberry jam. Pot of tea and large coffee complemented the food perfectly. Lovely coal fire was especially welcoming and the price reasonable

We ordered soup and a toastie not realising the large portions, toastie comes with side salad and home made coleslaw, beautiful but so so filling, we had latte's too before we rolled down the road! Gorgeous though

I'm a scone, jam & cream fan and there is nowhere as good as Porters of Helmsley. I only live 4 miles from Helmsley and I must have visited 10 times in the past couple of years, just for their outstanding homemade scones. You won't be disappointed.

My wife and I stopped off here on the way to Pickering. Within the village there was a lot of choice for places to eat / drink. This place is on one of the roads leading into / out of the market square. The shop was clean and the staff were efficient. We picked up a couple of fresh sandwiches... More

On a cold February day it was nice to be welcomed into this lovely little coffee shop with a roaring real fire! I had cappucino and home-made chocolate and ginger flapjack, and my daughter had mocha and raspberry and apple pie with a garnish of blueberries and kiwi fruit! We paid £11.50 ish in total, and I would definitely return... More
