Best cafe in town. Delicious healthy food, value for money, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. Great place for group gatherings or to just sit with a cuppa and a cake and watch the world go by. Genuinely some of the most delicious salads I've ever had!

We came for a quick coffee fix in the afternoon and couldn't resist the temptations of the menu! A lovely, quirky menu with something for all tastes. The salad choices are hearty and delicious and the cheese scones are to die for. My boyfriend couldn't leave without trying the sticky chocolate orange cake, which did not disappoint. The staff are... More

There was a queue here earlier so we thought we would give it a try. Excellent value with quick and friendly service by the staff. Must be hard work for them with all the stairs but great for us. Would happily return. Not a huge selection but more than enough choices. We were there early afternoon but breakfast looked good... More

York is an amazing place and with so many places to choose to have breakfast my party of 7 wanted to eat at a local business rather than a chain. Lucky Days has three floors and we were seated on the second floor. Plenty of choice for breakfast went for the full vegetarian which did fill me up and was... More

A group of nine dropped by for Breakfast, the Cafe has several floors and we were shown to a room at the top. We took over the entire room. The staff were very friendly, even though they had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to get to us.The food was very good and didn't break the bank.

Stumbled across this place after a long drive and an even longer wander round York..... needless to say we were hungry and cannot fault! The staff were exceptional, a warm welcome and attentive. The interior was cozy and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The salads alone are fantastic and the meals are light but so filling! Would definitely recommend the sweet... More

What a great little find in the centre of York. Offering a healthy and interesting menu. Beautifully presented food and very tasty. Friendly staff and a very reasonable bill. Lots of stairs so not a venue for the less mobile. We enjoyed lunch so much that later in the afternoon we had tea and a delicious home made scone in... More

Went in and ordered a very nice sandwich which was well prepared. An odd system of ordering three different salads to accompany the sandwich but nice, quick service nevertheless!
