This is another of the great small cafes in York where the food and service is always good. Great selection of sandwiches and cakes, lots of specials and good coffee. It is always busy with a mixture of folk, has some interesting wall art in the form of photos and the usual eclectic set up of tables and chairs including... More

An hour of comfort, a lemon and polenta cake that was really good and a warming pot of tea was the net result from the second visit to Brew and Brownie. I clocked their seating from an old theatre or cinema up against the wall - an example of the design touches that make it a comfy hub. Staff were... More

The coffee is great, in fact I'd say they do the best decaf flat white in York. The cakes look delicious. Today I just went in for a coffee and a croissant but when I saw the pancake stack that the waiter brought to my neighbour, my jaw dropped. The waiter noticed and was laughing at me! I had to...

Had a takeaway tea, coffee and 3 brownies with the family. The coffee was lovely and fresh and the brownies were amazing. Well worth the wait.

Originally wanted to come here for their pancakes as I've heard great reviews about it. But we came at lunch time and saw their specials for the day. We ordered soup, a warm goat's cheese salad with walnuts and a brie and bacon sandwich. Everything was super good! I am salivating just thinking about their food. It's simple food, cooked... More

Stopped by on the way to the train station - had previously tried earlier in the week but too busy. Decided to wait it out for 10 minutes. Well worth the wait - lovely staff, great food and reasonably priced. The pancakes and the eggs benedict are good options!
