“Delightful Cafe,food and staff brilliant, will be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This is a delightful cafe ,the food and staff are great. It is so nice to find an independant cafe selling delicious homemade food, we have visited this lovely cafe a few times now and will certainly be visiting again. They are not trying to be a restaurant as the previous critic suggested and the warm, friendly and efficient service from the staff makes you feel very welcome.So fed up of the indifferent and often rude service in many of the "much better places in Harrogate " The coffee is great by the way so is the location!

“Very average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Looks nice enough from the outside, but very bad location on an extremely busy road so no parking at all. I went on Friday night as they are more of a cafe but trying to go into the restaurant market. Unfortuantley it wasnt great. There were only a couple of other people in so atmosphere was dismal. I only had a bowl of soup in the end which was very underseasoned and bland. Service was good enough but a little bit too relaxed and informal. Even as a cafe the coffee is not great....much better places in Harrogate.

This "cafe" is not restaurant standard so should stop trying to be one. I may go back in the day time, but ill stick to a sandwich and a soft drink!!

Shaun H, Owner at Devil Angel, responded to this review, September 9, 2012
Thank you for your review. Please allow us to clarify that our aim is not to “go into the restaurant market”. We do not change the look or style of the café for an evening service or for private functions. Our venue is relaxed and informal whilst offering a professional and efficient service at all times. Such was never our aim and have never promoted Devil Angel as such.

We originally planned to open evenings as an extension to our highly regarded day-time service, once again extending the informal atmosphere for customers to enjoy after work for a drink and snack, pre/post cinema/theatre etc.

Our soups are made by us using fresh ingredients - never tinned or packet. We offer two varieties most days and consistantly receive positive feedback. As kitchen manager I personally apologise if you found your dish to be "under seasoned and bland" - comments we have never received before. We do take any critiscms or comments seriously and such would be helpful at the time rather than days/weeks later via such websites as this as that would help us to take any action deemed necessary.

Our evening service was successful with individuals, groups and families enjoying burgers, nacho’s etc or simply coffee & cake before the cinema.

Our coffee is roasted locally & popular with regulars who visit us on a daily basis, again we apologise you did not enjoy the coffee and this does not represent the feedback we receive constantly through the week – maybe the strength wasn’t to your taste as only offer 1 shot of coffee for a regular, but 2 for a large.

The location of the café is perfect for professionals and residents alike and is the closest licensed cafe to the Odeon cinema. Our location off the "high street" allows us to offer our food and drink products at great value to customers. But we can't please absolutely everyone.

Again, we do apologise if you found the experience average at best, perhaps we are not what you were expecting for an evening. Unfortunately, due to staffing issues, we have had to suspend our evening service until later in the year - again ensuring we continue to maintain our high standards through the daytime.

Best regards.
Angie & Shaun.

“A little piece of heaven on earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I came and visited Harrogate on a friday night, with my family and we came here for something to eat before going to the cinema. I was very impressed with the warm welcome and the the excellent service. Before entering I thought it was just an ordinary little cafe, handy for a quick bite before the film, but it ended up feeling like we'd been visiting friends. The service is quick and the food was delicious. Plenty of choice for all tastes and diets. The chips are hand cut and were very tasty. We were all so impressed that we went back for breakfast the following morning, again heartily recommended. Please go there and support Angie and Sean, they deserve masses of success.

“Nice find in Harrogate.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch here with my daughter. My ham salad sandwich was lovely - well filled and fresh. Went for a side of chips too and glad I did. My daughter's Greek salad was just what she wanted. No shortage of feta and lots of olives and leaves. We will definitely be back and maybe try an evening meal next time.

“Breakfast - Best Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

My husband, son and I had breakfast on Saturday 28 July - we often have breakfast out at weekends as a treat - we cannot recommend this breakfast highly enough. Clean, no grease, beautifully cooked with fresh local produce. Excellent - can't wait to go again!
