I absolutely love this independent coffee shop. I'm a total coffee snob now ... thanks to these guys. They change their coffee blends almost every week and are forever sourcing amazing blends from micro roasters or established roasters. All ethically sourced beans. It's a lovely setting, so welcoming. The staff are all lovely and you can find me in the... More

The staff all seem to have a good knowledge of the coffee that they sell,Where it comes from and its flavour etc, so you get to pick the right coffee for yourself.

Now I'm not a local, when returning to Harrogate, visiting Bean & Bud is a highlight. A great experience, every time. Brilliant music, amazing staff, superb coffee. No wonder they are award winners! A must when you're in town!

We were on the hunt for some fantastic craft coffee and after being slightly disappointed by the shop we had visited earlier. We came to Bean and Bud, then found exactly what we needed. There was a good selection of coffee's and methods to try. I went for a flat white to start with whilst I pondered over what to... More

This place is AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things I LOVE it here and so does everyone I know! They really know what they're doing; best coffee you'll ever taste, beautiful tea, delicious homemade cakes etc and frankly life changing sandwiches. SERIOUSLY. Try the sandwiches. The owners, Hayden and Ruth are some of the nicest, kindest, funniest people you... More

I occasionally bob down to bean and bud when I'm out and about in Harrogate, and always have a great coffee. The best thing is the changing options of beans to choose from. I find this something that more coffee shops should do. The cakes and sandwiches are always nice, as is the service and the atmosphere.

As a huge fan of Hoxton North I felt like I was playing away when I finally visited Bean and Bud but wished I had tried it sooner! After the same weird experience asking for a cappuccino and being asked twice what size of flat white I wanted, I sat down outside. There was a nice choice of several different... More

I almost don't want to review this place because it might become too busy for me to get my fix of tea and cake. The sandwiches and coffee aren't bad either!

I've moved recently to Harrogate. I've been there two times. and I have to say, I'm a bit dissapointed. Every time i asked for a cappuccino and every time i was served with a version of flat white..(yeah i know all the controversy around this subject), but there wasn't any creamy foam on my capp. Apart from that, if you...

Thanks for your comments. As you rightly say, cappuccino is not on our menu as we don't base ourselves on an Italian coffee shop model with dark roasted coffee and Italian names. Hopefully we explained to you that we do a flat white which has our measured shot of coffee and textured milk which we texture to bring out the... More

I like a really good coffee. Bean and Bud serves up the best coffee I have ever tasted; so complex and quite unlike that served up by the big chains. The staff really know their stuff and are clearly passionate about coffee. They will gladly tell you all about your beverage and the speciality coffees are always changing. I make... More
