You must try the ice cream

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!!!

Very busy, but still got great service - the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows is highly recommended.

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

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.
