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

We strive to cater for a wide variety of diets, including Vegetarian and Gluten Free. We use only free-range eggs in our home-baking and we're proud to source our fruit, vegetables, fresh meat and fish from local Yorkshire suppliers.

Our beautiful Victorian Atrium makes the perfect setting for a light lunch—or why not relax in our peaceful garden with coffee and friends? Regular guests have called us a sanctuary and we agree.
