  • Service was rather slow and nothing special on the food menu. Convenient for the public toilets which are right next door.
  • Charming hosts, delicious coffee and home made food, outside chairs and tables. Really sweet place.
  • Always a delight to come in and have a Bacon sandwich and a coffee for lunch, excellent customer service, very warm and welcoming and helpful staff and excellent value for money. 10 star rating from me.
  • Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. Food and coffee are very tasty and simple.
  • Forget the chains, this place does really good coffee.

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.
