What a gem! York is full of restaurants, bars and cafes, but if you want somewhere to eat with exceptionally high quality food - you have to come here. We ate at lunchtime in the deli and had bagels, I had smoked salmon, my wife chicken, both accompanied by an amazing salad/slaw, coffee and a cake each. Being able to watch the food being prepared, you could see that the staff take a pride in their food; no rush, an eye for detail, fresh, delicious produce and very well presented on the plate. I read the menu thoroughly and would have quite happily eaten all of it! The larger, cooked meals also looked highly appealing. All of the options have a healthy basis, so you do not feel too guilty topping it off with a cake!
Food and deli items can be bought to take away, the multiple bread options and pastries looking really good.
The staff were very friendly and engaging and despite it being quite compact downstairs, they made no effort to "move us along", as a result we had a wonderful relaxing lunch.
The deli kitchen was in full view and was spotlessly clean and tidy, each table was cleared and cleaned thoroughly and promptly and the toilet facilities were of a very high standard.
Cannot wait to go back - I just wish it was closer to home!!
