Came for a quick coffee whilst I was looking round the city of York. Customer service was good. The male waiter was efficient and helpful. Will happily come again!

Great table service with good food and drink available. No need to pay for entrance to the art gallery although a Museum Trust Card is cheap enough.

We ate lunch there. The food and service was very good. The cafe is light and airy with some interesting art on the walls. It is a very pleasant respite after a busy day touring the city and the art gallery.
