My partner and I stopped at this perfect little lunch spot yesterday. Seldom have I had such lovely service in such a welcoming atmosphere. It was like visiting a favourite aunt. The food was good and the place itself was exceptional. Next time I'm in York I'll definitely eat here again.

We decided the hotel indigo's breakfast prices were exorbitant and found this a short step away having looked on trip advisor. Friendly with super food and reasonable prices. The breakfast in a bun- the bun is big! Never dared try the full English! Lovely coffee.

Lovely homely atmosphere, wide varied menu including vegetarian options. Friendly staff and local produced, freshly cooked food. Great food for great value for money. Supporting a small local business

We came here every morning for our full English breakfast for the 3 mornings we were in York, and can't praise this place enough. The staff were all very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The food was just excellent, and came to our table nicely presented and hot and not greasy. All of the menu sounded very appetizing... More

Good breakfast and welcoming staff. The café is just a bit to small to accommodate all the people who wanted to eat there

Had breakfast today-the works for £5.95 Very tasty and a good choice of teas and coffees. I will definitely be back! Haven't had lunch there yet but it looked very good value and is also a takeaway. Lovely Yorkshire welcome too.

After I started a new job near Piccalilli's I popped in for a jacket potato and have been back every day since for nearly 10 months ! The owners take real pride in their business ensuring care and attention is given to each dish prepared and customer served; customers are given a very warm welcome and nothing is too much... More

Really enjoyed the breakfast. Definitely am going to be back here! Surprisingly top coffee too! A notch above the normal fare, and stronger than what you get in chains - though the staff are happy to do it as you like.

Half hearted staff and poor quality food coldest place I've eaten since Nando's silverlink !!!!! Turn off the air conditioner in November.

We're really sorry to hear this but we are a bit confused, we always have the cafe warm as I hate the cold, also we don't have an air conditioner. More

Came in on our way to work one morning. The woman that served is was one of the most pleasant women I have ever met. She was very welcoming and I would have returned even if the food hadn't been fantastic. Not a problem though, best bacon and egg sandwich I have ever had. Cannot recommend enough. I'll definitely be... More
