Have been here a few times now and really like it, the host is very attentive and really good food, tasty soup and wonderful homebakes. In a wonderful position too where you can sit and watch world go by whilst having a coffee.

A trully relaing place to have a cup of tea or coffee.
The young staff were very welcoming and attentive. There were many people coming in on a cold morning.
Their ginger biscuits and shortbread were delicious. Well worth the money.
We felt well refreshed after the visit.
Thank-you.

The best view in York - of the West front of the cathedral - but after sitting outside for 15 minutes during which time I drew the staff's attention to my presence twice I had not even been offered a menu. Maybe it was a case of ordering at the counter but if that was the case they could have come to tell me. It was not a busy day and there were empty tables both inside and outside.
I walked off and so cannot comment on the quality of anything other than the non-existent service.

This was our first wedding anniversary trip and we chose York as there's lots to see and do. We avidly read reviews on trip advisor looking for top places to eat, Bennetts wasn't our first choice fir breakfast but it should have been! The cafe we initially wanted to go to rated first in the list but on walking by we decided that looking out onto a busy main road wasn't in keeping with our relaxed weekend. Having passed Bennetts on the way we headed back and were not disappointed. The large windows are great for watching the world go by and have a lovely view of the Minster. The service was excellent and very friendly and the food very very good. My other half had the big breakfast and rated it very highly, my crumpets were very tasty too. Glad we stopped in.

We went to Bennett's Cafe after purchasing a Living Social Deal. The cafe is situated right across the road from the York Minster and therefore has lovely views.

We both enjoyed a very large piece of cake, one chocolate and one carrot. I would recommend them both but ensure you're hungry. The menu however seemed rather limited with mostly hot drinks and cake, the only savory options being a bacon sandwich and soup with a roll. It would have been nice to have been able to enjoy a sandwich along with our cakes but otherwise no complaints. The cafe is not very big so was quite full on our visit but the service was good and our order arrived quickly.

Certainly worth a visit as a break from the shopping!!
