I really like this place, the staff are friendly and the food and smoothies are good. £6 for a sandwich is a bit much though so I don't visit very regularly.

I visited the Shambles Kitchen last week with my girlfriend, and tried their frankly jaw-dropping Burrito. The only disappointment to be had was that i cant eat there all the time. I would recommend anyone who travels to York tries one of their amazing offerings. Ill be back!

I stopped by for lunch after being recommended by a friend of a friend. As a big fan of burritos I decided to get one as it's usually enough to fill me up. I thought £6 was pricey but perhaps worth it for good food and a filling meal. The portion sizes were conservative to say the least and didn't... More

Hi Luke. We have some new staff at the shop at the mo so I'll double check portion sizes. The food is certainly designed to be filling - in a good way. However, our business is not a traditional take away. We're at the shop early each morning preparing everything from scratch - even our sauces. So we're effectively a... More

Had lunch here due to the reviews on this site. The food was good and very tasty, the box meal was healthy but there wasn't a lot of it and even my petite girlfriend wasn't satisfied. My beef brisket sandwich was tasty but costing over £6 is a little overpriced in my opinion. The cafe itself is small but functional.... More

I ordered a large halloumi wrap for £4.95 and although lots of flavour in the veg and cous cous there was only one tiny piece of halloumi. Very disappointing for the price. I don't mind paying £4.95 for a good wrap but can't charge that much and completely scrimp on the filling. Overpriced.

Called in looking for somewhere for breakfast. Although not a place for a full English, the guys recommended somewhere for our breakie. We were greeted by a delicious smell and a description of their lunchtime special and we promised to return. They did not disappoint!!! The BBQ pulled pork sandwich and the chicken and peanut chicken was to die for!!!!... More

Great food, we also (see previous reviews) had pulled pork and brisket on offer, nothing to choose, both fab, couldn't decide, had both ! (I did share just a little, honest) Tiny 'sit in' area but wouldn't matter if you had to eat outside they're that good. We just recommend standing still ! Don't think you can eat one these... More

They had pulled pork and beef brisket pastrami when we stopped by so got one of both. The pulled pork was tender juicy and so good! The beef brisket just fell apart and wasn't tough at all. The flavour of both of them was delicious. Would highly recommend and we'll definitely be back!

Beef brisket sandwich was so nice and good. It was tender and flagrant. I'd like to visit here again if i can!

Description
A glorified sandwich shop. We only have 8 seats but have a very quick turnaround. All our options are available to takeaway.

Our specialty is our succulent Pulled Pork sandwich. It's cooked overnight, rested for 1 hour and served quick-sharp to avoid drying out. It's served in a soft, warm, sour dough bun with zingy slaw. Come between 11am and 3pm to avoid missing out on it.

All our food is made on site, from scratch - including one vegan soup each day as well toasted wraps and veggie juices.

Oh, and we set up smoothie bars in schools with our profits. It's fast food. But not as you know it.
