We were looking for somewhere to have brunch while on holiday in York. We liked the menu as there were good vegetarian options too. Initially the cafe looked full but we were taken upstairs which was empty and received excellent service from the staff all the way through.

Helpful service and lovely... More

I love this place and visited it on Thursday. I was shocked when I found its closed for refurbishment and very disappointed. They could have put something on the net about it not being open.

Lovely little cafe near York Minster, visited for afternoon tea, good food, great value - less than £20 a head for afternoon tea with prosecco, lovely staff, a great alternative to the more formal hotels and the sometimes overcrowded Bettys,

We needed lunch when visiting York - most places were absolutely heaving... however this cafe has a lovely upstairs with quite a bit more room and so was not as madly crowded. We had a drink with a soup and sandwich... this was really tasty, nicely presented and with good service.
