The location just outside the Minster is wonderful. £2.50 for a coke. £2.50 for a sparkling water, Then shortchanged.

Stopped on our last morning in York and sat at a sunny table outside. What a great spot to soak it all up! The staff are the nicest, happiest and friendliest people. We had hot chocolate and a Victoria 99 cupcake and a raspberry and...white chocolate cupcake. Delicious! The bill was just over £11 and we thought for the lovely morning snack and the sunny seat that was well worth it. 🧁More

Visited here recently while enjoying a long weekend and had a salted caramel gluten free cupcake.. it was LOVELY! Couldn’t even tell it was gluten free, lovely to be able to go out for a coffee and cake without feeling left out

Gluten free cupcakes were really bad, they tasted as if they was baked several days ago. £10 for 4 cupcakes you would expect fresh on the day. The previous owner was much better.

Lovely friendly service. Stopped off for a coffee, they offered oat milk which is great. Sadly no vegan or lactose free option for the cupcakes - but you could preorder. Would revisit, lovely location!

Great coffee, really friendly staff and a perfect sun trap with the cathedral in the background. Not expensive either!

My partner and I went here for a little walk during lockdown and I will definitely be returning! There is a lovely range of cupcakes with a 'special' one that changes daily. However, you will need to get there early if you want a variety...of choice as they do seel out fast! The staff are lovely and you have a perfect view of the minster if the weather is good enough. The safety measures that were put in place are easy to follow and very reassuring along with the lovely staff who work there. Will definitely be returning for another treat soon!More

We had the cherry bakewell the brownie the lemo and the 99 all were excellent we ate them the next day and they were still fresh and lovely My faviourte was the cherry bakewell it was lovelyMore
