Called Sunday morning for coffee and scones. Coffee blended in Sicily and scones freshly baked each morning. Enjoyed in front of a real log burning fire.

This is my second visit here, and always a pleasure, the food is freshly made and tastes great, the only thing I'd say is you need to guess the menu. As they only do soup and sandwiches, would like a better variety. Not knocking it too much as the bacon panini I had came with a really well presented salad,... More

Stopped off in Helmsley for the first time and chose this place from all the coffee shops. Nice comfy seating, open fire and lovely staff made it a nice relaxing visit. Had the coffee and the rascal and loved it - definitely come again.

Had snack in front of roaring fire on very cold day. Very friendly staff, quick service and good choice of tasty food. Had sandwiches, scones and coffee. Good value for money. Selection of newspapers and magazines to read.

We had just had a walk around this picturesque village and stopped for a coffee and a scone, god what have I turned in to. Anyway this is a nice tidy cafe, the coffee was really nice and the scones fantastic, a bit on the expensive side but everything in Helmsley is. A nice roaring fire as well which is... More

Good coffee and scones in pleasing surroundings. We have visited before and will go back again. The fire both indoors and out makes it so welcoming. The service is good and so friendly
