We had cream tea at Porters and the scones were superb. The tea was also excellent. The service could be a bit more friendly but it is still a nice place.

Stopped here for an afternoon ice cream and we were not dissapointed! The ice cream is straight from italy and looks mouth watering. Best ice cream in helmsley, coupled with friendly service and good outdoor seating made it a great visit.

We have popped in here several times in the past for their delicious cakes and tea/coffee. We decided to have lunch there this time and ordered paninis with a difference-mozzarella, sun dried tomato and pesto ( a change from cheese and tomato!) served with a side salad. They were brought to the table by a person we presumed was 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.
