Surely when getting a pot of tea you would get loose leaf tea and a pot of water, rather than a bland tea bag, for £1.85.

Advised by a local that this was the best coffee shop in Helmsley, and they were right about the coffee. Also a comfortable place to enjoy it. Also does lunches.

We visited Helmsley yesterday and found this cafe on TA so decided to give it a try. We just had cheese scones and coffee, both were very good. The other diners snacks looked equally as good. There are a variety of seating, unfortunately we didn't get one of the comfy sofas and our seats were a bit hard but at... More

His 'ice.cream' is terrific, and he keeps working on new flavours. Of course you can have coffee too, with scones, cake, and now... More

I do not have a reputation for gushing enthusiasm about much at all, but this place needs to be mentioned. Porters is now a regular place for lunch after a walk with the dog and before our trip around the wonderful shops in Helmsley to stock up on goodies! We have always enjoyed Porters but today seemed so different, the... More

We are long standing lovers of one of the best coffee shops in Yorkshire 'Porters Coffee Shop' in Helmsley. We went in today expecting a sandwich lunch which would have been wonderful as it has always been in the past. But today they have stepped into my 'exceptional' category instead of a sandwich garnished beautifully with fantastic salad (which we... More
