Just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of historic York, our café is open for breakfast or lunch. We offer a fresh daily selection of homemade soup, tempting cakes and scones, with sandwiches made to order and a Specials Board updated daily.

Our beautiful Victorian Atrium makes the perfect setting for a light lunch — or why not relax in our peaceful garden with coffee and friends?
