We visited this cafe earlier this month during a trip to North Yorkshire. It was a bitterly cold day but the café was warm and the owner was welcoming and friendly. My wife had a tuna sandwich and I had a sausage sandwich. The sausage was sourced from a local butcher. The quality of the food was first class and... More

Visited here again this week with my partner and was greeted like an old friend. We had a lovely cheese scone, veggie roll and opera cake. My tea was excellent and my partner is still talking about her hot chocolate. Will be going back very soon. John and Jill

Having had a wander around pickering and past several eateries, we spotted this one across the green, what a great find and worth the effort of continuing part the others. Very attentive staff, lovely vintage feel to the interior, and the food, freshly made and delicious.

Situated just past the church, came across Cafe Cocoa whilst on train trip from Whitby. Then stopped off for breakfast on way home. Really nice food and service both times. Would highly recommend- miss out the cafes in the main street and head here

Not fancying a greasy fry up, Cafe Cocoa offered a delicious and healthy omelette which really hit the spot! Not only was the food fresh and tasty, the coffee was very good and the service impeccable. We spent a... More

Yes - they really do deliver your order across the road to the green! On a sunny day what a great way to have a light lunch - sitting on one of a number of park benches eating very generous sandwiches and watching the world and its dogs go by. Great stopping off place for lunch or for a break... More

We visited here and wrote a review in 2014 so being in need of a full breakfast early morning we called in again. Another warm friendly welcome and an excellent breakfast for both of us, next time we are going to call in later and try those fabulous looking home made cakes. Lets see if you remember us next time... More
