“A proper cafe - friendly and popular”
Review of Rascals - CLOSED

Rascals

Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Located on Waterside overlooking the River Nidd, Rascals offers a wide range of home cooked snacks, cakes and meals using locally sourced produce and is open daily throughout the year. It is well laid out with tables both inside and on the terrace overlooking the river. They serve a wide range of high quality ice cream and their coffee is is quite superb, many locals say that it is the best in the area. Their prices are sensible and it's well worth a visit.

This delightful cafe is a regular halt for me and my friends when cycling through Knaresborough. Cyclists become cafe connoisseurs and I can certainly recommend this one although I always have the same coffee and rascal so can't say much about the other food other than that it looks good. Also I see that there are always 'regulars' in Rascals which must be an endorsement of the place, particularly as there are two other cafes within a stone' throw.

Great service and so speedy on a busy NYD. Family fun at an outside table under a parasol. Yorkshire tea, rascals scones, great cappuccino and a freshly cooked plate of chips for a discerning grandson. He loved it. Tea, coffee and food all for £7.00!!!!! Lovely family run cafe. Visit Knaresborough, visit Rascals.

Great location, fast service, good portions, yummy milk-shake - just what we needed! Excellent Value - a good cafe, and leave room for an ice cream on your way out!

One of the best locations in Knaresborough - this little cafe has great roast and ground coffee, a super lunchtime menu and a great range of homemade cakes.
We love to drop in here on a walk along Waterside and have a special hot chocolate.
Really friendly staff too.

This little cafe is a gem. The cafe is staffed by family and we have gradually got to know them over the years. The serve excellent latte and wonderful cakes. They also have home made soups on the menu. Great for people watching as there is outside seating too for the sunnier days and right across from the riverside, only blocked unfortunately by Marigold cafe. they also let well behaved dogs in too, so great if its raining. Call in next time you go knaresborough its fab,
