Fantastic breakfast, extremely efficient and friendly staff. This has to be one of the top places in York. Food was out of this world. Cleanliness was top standard with sanitation area as you enter. When we return to York we’ll be back for sure.

We are here for a few days. Out friend wendy suggested we come here. This place was great. Fast service, great menu, lovely selection of sweet things. What more a choice of Vegan and Gluten free. This is rare to find. We sat for over...two hours the coffee, tea and hot chocolate was amazing. We will be back again.More
