“Delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Called in just for a coffee really, but decided to try a scone. My husband ordered fruit scone with jam & cream and I ordered cheese scone with chutney & cream cheese & herbs. The coffees were really good and served with a delicious biscotti biscuit. When the scones arrived, beautifully presented on a two-tier cake stand, we were surprised to receive two of each variety. So we decided to share and have one cheese and one fruit scone each. Both types of scone were delicious; a lovely texture inside and slightly crisp on the outside, and the accompaniments for both were great. Staff were friendly and welcoming. It's quite a small place and was constantly busy all the time we were there (a Friday morning) both with the café and the deli counter. On our way out we bought a packet of the biscotti to have at home and some bread - a white loaf, a small baguette and a small cheese and pesto bread - all were excellent. We will definitely be returning, both for the café and for the deli.

“Small, but oh so perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

This little gem is a must for a break after a few shopping hours in York. The food is good quality beautifully presented, good upmarket bistro style fare.We were greeted with a smile, it was busy, we were seated very quickly. The food all around us looked great. My friend and I ordered, our food came to us hot and served on a warmed plate. I found my scrambled eggs too salty, I mentioned it to the young lady serving, and quickly and graciously my order was removed and a replaced. That done, it was perfection, the eggs creamy, the smoked salmon delicious and the toast made with a very good bread.
We decided to have 'a little something' to go with our tea,not an easy choice but decided on an almond and pestachio cup cake, when it arrived it came with a rhubarb tartlet taster to try. How often does that happen?
I loved everything about Mannions, the food, the welcome, the attention to detail and I shall be going back - often.

“Top designer sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Agree totally with many of the reviews - this is the place to get a first class sandwich in York. Great atmosphere and service. One note of caution on pricing is that table tea and coffee prices are a bit of a shocker - probably subsidisng the more reasonable prices for the food; still - not to be missed.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We tried the Mannion & Co yesterday (10/04/13). It was very clean, with a smell of fresh cooked bread. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We had a roast pork & apple sauce sandwich.
It was delicious. We have tried many places in York over the years & I have to say this is the best we have found. We visit York at least once a month & we will be back at Mannion & Co next time.
