We read other reviews of this independent cafe and decided to give it a try, especially as my wife is gluten intolerant. After weaving our way past 200 cyclists taking part in a race on the Wolds (!) we were in need of calm! And we found it here. The cafe's owner specialises in home made gluten free food -... More

We decided to go here for lunch for my Mum's birthday after reading the good reviews on trip advisor. The decor was absolutely lovely, the place was clean and there was nothing wrong with the food. There was only one other table in, so we picked a table by the window. We weren't greeted or made to feel welcome. We... More

I can't apologise enough and am very disappointed that my staff member let us down. She is fairly new but I always impress on the staff the importance of good friendly service so it is no excuse. I am pleased to say this is not the norm at The Wish Cat Cafe but very sorry that this was your experience... More

The afternoon tea here is superb and well presented with a nice selection of cakes and sandwiches. We sat outside in the cute porch as we had a dog. The staff are very friendly and welcoming too.

Went here for a family get together for a family members bday. Had afternoon tea and the food was lovely. Could tell it was all home made. One of our family members is gluten free and she was catered for also which is nice. The kids especially loved making a wish on the cat wish tree. Will be definitely recommending... More

We visited The Wish Cat Cafe on 21st May 2016 and what a lovely cafe it is. The ambiance is perfect and it is just like an old English tea room with all the Chintz tablecloths and pastel tables and chairs. The staff were polite and took really good care of us during our visit. The restaurant has a full... More

Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your visit. A little confused as to the snacks as opposed to main meals comment but I suppose it depends whether you class lunch or brunch as a main meal. Our lunches are the most popular items on the menu and are freshly cooked to order served with a variety of... More

A unique and fantastic little find. Really family friendly and excellent service. Tucked out of the way yet easy enough to locate.

Called in for breakfast today after a sunny walk from sewerby, wish cat cafe opens at 10. Food was delicious (especially great scrambled eggs on toast) & the cakes also looked good (although we didn't have any as it was only 10am, we did take away a peanut cookie (divine) & a chocolate brownie (a little dark for my taste))....
