Stopped in at Circles instead of hitting the usual branded places in York city centre. It is small but it what I expected from a historic building on the ancient Lendal Bridge. It's on the way into the centre from the train station so it's very convenient. Good selection of sandwiches, cakes , teas, coffees and soup of the day. I have given the "families with children" rating a 3 because it is small and wouldn't suit a larger party, or buggies, fine for me, wife and 6yr old though. Not really a fault it's just an old building.

Bobbed in for a brew on my way to the train station and found myself sat down enjoyning a panini and a coffee served by friendly staff in a relaxed environment. Would recommend this place to anyone.

On the walk back from the York Minster we found the Circles Cafe on the bridge in the old toll building. Home made celery soup, jacket potato and coffee. Fantastic meal, pleasant staff.

popped in for coffee and a bite to eat. had the nachos, what a platter it was, cheese salsa etc overflowing, great coffee also. Excellent staff, very helpful!! The cakes looked lovely but far too full to try them. Will definitely be back to this lovely little tea room. Not to be missed.

Had a really nice sandwich, Brie, bacon, rocket and cranberry on granary...and a berry smoothie. Excellent. Great place to stop for a snack before heading back to the station.
