Lovely cafe with very welcoming staff, really nice place to stop and watch the world go by and the hot chocolate is the best I have ever tasted, perfect. Whilst we didn't eat anything the food around us looked delicious. Definitely a return visit.

Had a quick snack here today. My husband chose a baguette from the specials board, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I chose carrot cake, which was a generous portion, served with yoghurt. Both were washed down with hot chocolate and tea. Nice selection on the menu. Very pleasant staff. Inside the Concerto is quirky. Great find and very close to the... More

I've come here a few times now, first for coffee and cake (that essential dietary staple) and more recently for food. In particular, we went for our first date here and the Butternut Squash Lasagne was absolutely incredible, not to mention vegetarian. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly (especially given how late we stayed around talking!) We've been back... More

You sit down, and start to look around at the wonderful way the cafe is decorated, then you start to listen to the music.

This was our second time in york. We found this cafe during our first visit two years ago. We had such a lovely lunch that me and my partner both agreed that we'd return the next time we're in york.

Revisited this little establishment again after 3 years away. It is so close to the Minster but still manages to serve huge tasty portions at a welcoming Yorkshire price. Get there early to avoid disappointment and a huge queue!

My friends and I came here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The food came quickly and was lovely (great French toast!). The servers were very friendly and the atmosphere was calm and relaxing. A great start to our morning!

Called in to get a light lunch. Soup for one and a chicken salad baguette for the other, which were served quite quickly and were presented very well.

Was recommended by an ex resident of York! A great choice, superb home cooked comfort food and location close to the Minster. Very pleasant staff. Personal recommendation would be the cottage pie and concerto dauphinoise.

After a walk round the minster we stopped in here for a pot of tea and light bite. Served quickly and with a smile; the food was really tasty and well presented.
