So pleased to have found this place as we stayed nearby in a hotel which left us hungry in more ways than one. The staff here were lovely, friendly and so helpful . We had the prawn cocktail and a sharing platter to pick at with a lovely white wine.. It was super.. We returned the next day for the... More

My favourite cafe in Helmsley where I go every year. Cultured ambience, good coffee, dangerously nice cakes and toasted whatsitsnames, lovely staff. The girls are always turned out really nicely with just that suggestion of uniform that is to be applauded. I spend several days in Helmsley every year at The Farmyard Party which is a huge biker weekend bash... More

Visited Yorkshire a couple of times in the past month - first visit, picked Porters by chance on a day out in the North York Moors when I happened to be in Helmsley at coffee time. Second visit, I went to Helmsley specifically to have coffee at Porters! Really special little place - friendly, lovely atmosphere (all that Yorkshire warmth!),... More

Delightful setting. We sat in the Courtyard in a setting made beautiful by exquisite flowers in hanging baskets. Very relaxing. We decided to order a cold meats/ cheeses with salad platter to share and tea to drink. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. When we asked they told us wifi was available even outside. We shall certainly... More

Great place. Whilst in Helmsley for the week got my first caffiene fix of the day after walking the dog every day. Consistently good coffee with friendly staff and owners, later in the day visited and sweet collection very tempting, food excellent. Will visit again when in area.

Only popped in for coffee but wanted to review this cafe as the staff were so friendly and efficient. Coffee was excellent and we certainly hope to revisit soon and next time eat. A smile costs nothing but means a lot and here there were plenty.

A very welcoming cafe with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. I had a coffee and a cake, and did not try the other food, but it was very good. The atmosphere was very relaxed and there was no great rush. I would definitely return there.

Home made expensive but fantastic you really do get what you have paid for and what is wrong with that always busy so this place must have something worth spending for.

£3.30 for a fairly weak flat white coffee we thought was too pricey! We have had much better coffee at a far more reasonable price! The food also looked to be expensive for what it was! We liked Helmsley & will call there again but will try a different coffee shop next time!

The cafe has an excellent selection of light meals and delicious cakes and cream teas. Hot chocolate is really good. Friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. Frequented by locals and visitors alike. Lovely outdoor seating area under awning with lots of flowers around. Ideal if you have a dog - they are always very welcome.
