Lemon Meringue Pie to die for!

A lovely warm welcome and very accommodating (we had a pushchair). I had the Lemon Meringue pie - divine. The pastry melted in the mouth, the lemon custard was creamy and dreamy and the meringue light and fluffy with a light crisp. My other half had the caramel apple tart and he was equally... read more

My boyfriend and I have coffee here every weekend now and we are always very impressed with the food and service. We usually have coffee (mochas), a cheese scone, and a toasted teacake. We will often get the soup (depend on flavour, which is usually different every week, ranging from vegetable to pea and ham to tomato and bacon and... More

In a small town with so many coffee shops we found that the personal service in Porters really helped to make it stand out. Everyone there was friendly and polite which really helped to differentiate it from the many other coffee shops. The coffee was good and the scones excellent!

We were amazed by the warmth of the welcome from all of the staff ,Sunday papers were offered together with home made scones and imported French butter. The coffee was superb. This is simply the nicest place to spend time people watching and enjoying the wonderful... More

Recommended by a friend, the tea and chocolate roulade were great, and the ice cream which is made by Antonio was a delight, would go back when next in Helmsley

Called in with a friend for coffee. The coffee was excellent and being dairy intolerant it was wonderful to be offered soy milk alternative. The scones and cakes are just so good you hardly know what to choose. They also sell some very nice cards. There is a nice little courtyard with a few tables where you can enjoy the... More

We have called here a couple of times, once in winter, when there was a large fire to sit close to and enjoy the coffee, and again this month. On both visits you are made to feel welcome, they serve excellent coffee with great sandwiches and super cakes. Very comfortable surroundings, made to feel welcome with great coffee and cakes,...

We called for coffee on a morning visit to Helmsley. Our party consisted of husband, myself and father in law with our two dogs. We sat on the lovely terrace and ordered our coffees which arrived promptly, they were good coffees especially the cappuccino. Our dogs appreciated the bowl of water brought out for them and the fuss they received.

Nice coffee and pastry. A good stop on your way out of town especially if you can't face another giant breakfast. A pleasant and knowledgeable owner is happy to provide good local knowledge of the area to boot.
