“Disgraceful”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I visited Bruks today with business colleagus after we had read a number of good reviews, However we felt the food was not as good as a number of cafes in the vicinty, the service was average but ruined by the constant "Is everything alright" then followed by one of my colleagues being asked to write a good review on trip advisor. This was the last straw, i feel that the whole point of trip advisor and other review sights is for people to comment on their experiences as they see them and not being pressured by its owners/staff, allowing people who read these reviews an honest opinion. This makes a mockery of social media review sites. Anybody wishing to visit Bruks should do so without taking there high reviews with a pinch of salt. My colleagues and myself will certainly nt be revisiting this cafe and will not be recommending it to anyone else in fact I will be advising them of much better restaurants all within 5/10 minutes of the place to go to. Finally as far as the coffee goes there are dozens of cafes and restaurants in York which serve hot coffee withot rinds in the bottom of the cup,

“Top quality drinks, food and staff”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Now this is how a cafe should be; warm, friendly, excellent quality and keen prices. Quite how we hadn’t found this place before now I don’t know but we’ll certainly be back.

Situated on Piccadilly opposite Argos it is very close to the main shopping areas. The decor has a modern feel and it appears to be child-friendly judging by the number of children’s books and toys available next to some tables.

The staff were great and it was obvious that nothing was too much trouble. We overheard other customers asking for things from the food menu with slight changes and they got what they’d asked for. The staff here clearly care about what they do.
