Maybe we visited on an off day, but I was expecting so much more after reading the reviews. The coffee (Americano) was okay, nothing amazing. We tried two different brownies, the coconut was very good, the salted caramel was a bit more average. The staff were not particularly friendly either. All in all, can't say I would rush back.

I have been visiting in York 1 week ago. I walk pass this cafe when I went to York Minster. I had scrambled eggs on toast add smoked salmon and some flat white coffee. It's delicious. I wanna eat brownies but I was so full. If possible I gonna go back again.!! (:

Popped in as walking past and glad I did. A very nice nice hot chocolate, rich and full of flavour. Will definitely come back for another and to try another cake. Great place!!!

We discovered Brew & Brownie by accident on our first morning in York. We stepped off the bus with the intentions of buy croissants from a bakery but we stopped this rustic looking cafe/restaurant and it suddenly looked very appealing. So we ventured in and never looked back, in fact for the next 3 days we had breakfast here religiously.... More

Fabulous breakfast. I had avocado smash with bacon on a gluten free bagel and salad. To die for. Hubby had scrambled egg and bacon on bloomer sourdough. My son had bacon. We all loved it. Coffee was ace too. Perfect. It's very busy and we were lucky to get a table. Excellent find in a fab location

My family and I stopped by Brew and Brownie after reading other reviews on trip adviser. We were very impressed. The decor is inviting, the coffee is excellent and the breakfast selection is large and tasty. The brownies and homemade cakes looked delicious, but we were too full to try them!

My mum and I visited whilst on a shopping trip to York. We were walking by across lunchtime and decided to go in. The atmosphere was buzzing and the cakes looked so inviting as soon as we walked in! Shortly after we sat down the waitress came and took our order. I had the American pancake stack with yoghurt, a... More

High quality coffee with homemade cakes . The owners are a young friendly couple who pay attention to personal service . The only problem is getting a seat !! Good location near Museum Gardens , the river , and city centre

We visited here after seeing it recommended on Yelp. We had a delicious breakfast- smashed avo on sourdough for me and a breakfast sandwich for my partner. I had an amazing latte which I was really impressed with. I'd have loved to have had a cake as they all looked delicious. We didn't even have to wait for a table... More

This is a small place but the food is amazing. Really is a favourite place of mine. Centrally located. Staff are friendly. Pancakes are to die for.
