“Lovely start to the day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Called in for breakfast on 27/12/12 having read reviews on TripAdvisor. It was close to the Central York Travelodge where we were staying. We were not disappointed. As it was early, and the place had just opened it was empty, so we grabbed the sofa seats.The atmosphere was not lacking even though it was too early for other customers post Christmas! We had lattes, a posh bacon sandwich and toasted fruit bread. The staff were attentive and polite. It was a very relaxing atmosphere and the cakes on the counter looked delicious, so we could easily have let breakfast roll into morning coffee, followed by lunch! Excellent coffee and breakfast in comfortable surroundings. A great start to the day, not to be missed.

“Couldn't fault it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

While visiting York I stopped off here with my wife for a coffee and a bite to eat. My flat white was as good as anything I've had in the UK and the panini was also very nice. The cakes on the counter all looked lovely. The decor and staff were great too. What's not to like?

“Fabulous coffee, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We have visited this cafe a couple of times now, having only just discovered it despite living in York for several years. It definitely lives up to the reputation of having the best coffee. The cakes are also delectable and we had a wonderful lunch on our second visit with fantastic bread. It is small but we have managed to find a table quickly on both our visits. Highly recommended!
