Spent the weekend in York with my girlfriend and we went here for breakfast on our last day. Food was amazing, good portion sizes and reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Poached eggs were the best I’ve ever had anywhere else. Staff were really polite and friendly and made you feel welcome. Gutted we didn’t find this place at the beginning of the weekend, but next time we visit it will be the first place we will go. I’ve read the bad reviews on here and I just don’t understand how you can pick fault with this place. Really good cafe and would highly recommend

Loved it. My wife and I walked past looking for somewhere to have brunch. Given the options in the area we decided on this place. Best decision we have made in a long time. I think it’s family run. They were all pleasant smiley and clearly happy in the work. They even offered to cook up a full English breakfast for me despite it being past the cut off time. We decided on a Ploughman’s platter for two. It was fantastic, locally sourced and fresh. Then we had cake. All homemade by the owner I believe. Soft moist and tasty. We will definitely make a habit of going there. Just shows stay away from main tourist area and keep it local to find the best places to eat.

We did an early Saturday morning circuit of the city walls and landed at the minster just before 9 am. Short walk to this small but welcoming cafe. Ordered two cooked breakfasts and hot drinks. Arrived promptly and was great, good quality, lovely poached eggs. Dealt with gluten free for one of us very well.
