Nice friendly atmosphere, with lovely open fire which was great as it was a little cold that day. Has nice little sofa areas to sit and relax whilst eating or having a hot drink. Had a nice cup of coffee and toasted sandwich which was tasty and nicely presented with an accompanying salad.

Porters is a really cheerful, friendly cafe with an open fire, comfortable, roomy, atmospheric and spotlessly clean. There is also a pleasant outside seating are for guests with dogs or a preference for fresh air. It even has broadband! The food, mostly home made, is fresh, excellent and imaginative with plenty of choice. The Italian ice cream, made on the... More

Having visited Porters many times over the years ,and eaten on more than one occasion the fruit scones with jam & clotted cream,I was disappointed on our visit today by the lack of fruit in the jam ,it was more like a fruit syrup that dripped off the scone when eating it This may seem a trivial thing to say...

The ice cream in this place has to be the best way be ever tasted. All the staff are very polite and friendly but I'd like to give a special mention to Antonio, he's a really nice guy to have front of house the regulars all seem to love him, and he dishes up a mean ice cream!!! Keep up... More

After looking around Helmsley for a spot of lunch we decided on Porters Coffee Shop. The shop has a very 'local' feel and was very busy on arrival which is always a good sign. Price can seem a little daunting at £5.50 for a cheddar and ham Panini, but I assure you, you will not be disappointed. Arriving to the... More

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
