Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wow. What a little gem this place is. It is situated in a quiet residential area in York, but queues out of the door at 8:30am on a Saturday tells you everything you need to know. The breakfasts were truly excellent. The ‘meaty fry-up’ was...excellent and especially liked the herby mushrooms and black pudding. Our poached eggs were perfect and the ham melted in your mouth. All the produce is locally sourced, tasted fresh and was good value for money. Friendly staff. Will come again when in York.More

Words cannot explain the flavours and care that go into their food. EVERYTHING is homemade. We come from Norfolk a few times a year on holiday and the food highlight seriously is this place. We ADORE it! Never change what you do. Absolutely perfect. LOVE...LOVE LOVE this place. If you go to York you MUST go there.More

We fell in love with this quirky little breakfast spot. Everything was great, eggs, porridge, pastries. We loved it so much, we went back the next day.

Good quality food, however, the service felt a little pushy as though we were being rushed through our food. This was the same when paying the bill. The staff hovered over us rather than giving us a minute. I understand there was a wait at...the door to get a table but it would have been nice to have a little breathing room whilst we were dining.More

Loved our visit to this cafe today. Great selection of food and good efficient service. We had eggs Benedict and the Reuben with long black and oat milk cappuccino coffees. Luckily we got there early but people were soon queuing to get in. Definitely would...be a regular if lived in York.More

We were recommended to try the Pig & Pastry for breakfast and it did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and the service brilliant. Well worth a short walk out of town.

Not sure what all the hype is about. Pretty average food. Frosty service. Nothing special. Plenty better in York, or anywhere for that matter. Underwhelming

We visited this place on the last day of our holiday in York but wished we had gone sooner so we could go back. It’s on our list for a future return trip. There was plenty of room but it did soon fill up. The...staff are very friendly and welcoming explaining the menu. We went for the meaty fry up and smoked salmon on toast. The food was delicious and very good value for money. All food cooked fresh and served well. Definitely worth a visit and would recommendMore

Delicious Shakshuka, lovely ice coffee. Children enjoyed their waffles and the Royale was well received. Disappointingly they do not make smoothies any more… one reviewer on the website mentioned they’d “take a bullet” for one of those previously, perhaps they’d consider bringing those back?! The...orange juices were tiny, and not freshly squeezed on site, but the service was friendly. They did ask us to pay for our brunch twice, and this took some time to undo once 2 payments had been taken. Overall an enjoyable experience.More
