What a wonderful place. We visited Helmsley on a wet Thursday morning and the huge, open fire had helped to attract a lot of customers. There is a mixture of soft and hard seating in this higgledy-piggledy cafe and there was pleasant jazz playing in the background.

My latte was very tasty - better than most, and I had a home-made-looking square of millionaire's shortbread with it which was delicious. My wife had a tea and is always pleased when tea is served in a proper teacup.

Amongst the many "coffee and a sticky" stops we made in our short visit to the North Yorkshire Moors, this rated as second only to the exceptional Leoni's in Malton, and I would recommend it to anyone in the area.

This is such an enchanting place to have a coffee. Very busy and obviously popular, without being crowded. It was just a quick stop for us so would like to have stayed longer - and probably will again. The decor is really nice, The coffee was good and the food looked tempting and varied.. Very atmospheric with attentive, friendly staff. Ideal for taking time out for a quiet drink or bite to eat.

I have been promising myself to visit Porters for some time now, and finally managed to call in on Sunday. Everything about it was just right. What appears to be a simple offering is actually quite large without being too much. The prices were reasonable and the quality was excellent. The staff were well organised and very friendly.
Excellent job Tony

This is a very good coffee shop which serves excellent coffee and superb sandwiches. I enjoyed a cheese and ham toastie. None of your formed plastic ham here just good roast ham off the bone. Prices very reasonable for a tourist town.
