Very welcoming

Afternoon tea in a very welcoming and comfortable coffee house. The scones were very good, homemade jam and clotted cream. The coffee house offers table or sofa seating and an open fire. Wonderful.

After a morning's walk, this cafe provided excellent toasted homemade panini with proper salad and delicious coffee in a comfortable if busy setting. The service was friendly and efficient, and anywhere that provides a glass of water with a double espresso gets five stars in my book!

A very good place to meet friends and chat. It is warm, with an open fire, it has comfy armchairs and welcomes dogs in some of the areas. The staff are delightful, taking care that everyone is happy. The food is very tasty and plentiful. The walnut and coffee cake is especially good. I would recommend this coffee shop above... More

Very nice coffee shop, delicious coffee and hot chocolate. Friendly staff, reasonably priced, dogs allowed in part of the shop and a warm chiminea in the rear court yard which is very cosy. Home made vanilla slice was sublime!

Well positioned in centre of Helmsley. Seating at tables, on sofas or outside with a wood burning chimney and excellent potted flowers. You need to go to the counter to order, I sometimes forget and wonder why I am still sitting there ten minutes later! Good choice of coffee and baked goods. I have not had anything more substantial.

Dropped in here for a coffee recently, which we really enjoyed, as it was a good temperature and in a decent sized cup. A very popular place, judging by the number of people inside, and I am sure that if I lived nearer I would frequent this place.

There are plenty coffee shops in the village, we thought the scones and coffee were nice enough, it was busy but service by the owner not the most friendly, efficient however but had it been more friendly we might have returned as we were staying for a week
