It closes at 5pm so sure to arrive before that to enjoy this cozy coffee. Good location to rest during the wall walk.

It's easy to miss and that's probably just as well because it's tiny and can only seat less than 20 people inside. Does really nice coffee and a range of toasties, sandwiches and cakes.

Easily one of the best ham and cheese toasties I've had. Great food, drinks made with care and attention. Quaint and cosy little place perched on the river. We didn't want to leave.

Great little coffee shop; very close to the station but literally embedded in the York walls. Beautiful velvety coffee. Tasty toasted cheese bread. The cakes looked tasty and fresh. Lovely friendly staff. A great oasis on a dreadfully rainy day!!!

Excellent coffee stop quite by chance on a grey morning. Seats about 17 inside. Lots of different snacks for a small cosy historic little place. The toast was divine.

Finally came here after following the shop on twitter for around 3 years, and I have to say it was totally worth the wait!! The shop is so quirky, the staff super friendly, the coffee fantastic, and the food so tasty!! Would definitely come back again!!

Thank Pete W
