Lovely place, friendly helpful staff, we went to bake scones with a younger Alzheimers group, nothing was to much trouble, enjoyed the experience very much. Looking forward to another visit 😀

After recently visiting family in the area I thought I would try some of the local food establishments. This place has to be one of the worst cafes I have purchased from. After placing a simple order of two full English breakfasts I had to wait almost 30 minutes!! I mean I understand it's prepared from fresh but it was... More

Lovely little deli/cafe in the village of Bishopthorpe with free parking. Has tables inside and outside but we have used it more in conjunction with the pot painting place next door. Friendly staff and good service. Food and drinks reasonable prices and good quality. Highly recommend.

Visited here after going to the ceramic shop next door. Such a warm welcome! The food was delicious. The staff so helpful and brought everything over for us. The cakes were fresh and the sandwiches full of filling and salad. The sitting area was quite full when we arrived next door but luckily there was space when we needed lunch.... More

Delicacy is a very welcoming local deli that serves delicious sandwiches, cakes and lots more! We love to go for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. They have a seating area, so you can eat in or take away. The staff are very friendly and make you very welcome. I would recommend Delicacy to everyone.

Delicacy joined forces with Pots and Whatnots (the pottery painting studio next door) to offer a unique event of afternoon tea while we had fun painting a mug or cup and saucer!

Small but effective shop-type cafe selling sandwiches, buns and cakes for either eat in or take away consumption. There was a bright cheery welcome and friendly, polite service from all the staff. Coffee was reasonably strong, fresh and tasty. They seemed to do a lively trade in take away whilst we munched on our toasted tea cakes. The only draw... More
