Under the recommendation of our B&B host, we came to this bistro right in front of the Minster. Sitting by the window, we could see the facade of the Minster in clarity, and the people came to pay their admiration. It was a good start. While the menu is somewhat limited, everything this bistro offers is good and at a reasonable price. The duck breast was succulent to die for. The home-made gnocchi was creatively good. Instead of laying sauce, the dumplings and squash were lightly pan fried to add the flavor. To top it all, we were given a 25% discount for dining early. It was one of the best meals we had in U K.

Booked to go with friends. Chose a table at 6pm rather than 9pm and did wonder whether we would rushed so they could re-use the table. Not at all. It was a cosy relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and really tasty food. Menu is limited but what they served was great. Have recommended to friends and family already. Will certainly go back and see what other delights they have on the menu.
Thank you for a lovely evening.

What an amazing find this cafe was for our breakfast with a view during the Easter holidays. Right beside the Minster, the cafe is run by two or the loveliest people who are obviously passionate about providing a high level of service to each and every customer. They were so polite and friendly and this shone through in their service and high standards for the food they serve. Would 100% recommend you visiting if you’re in the area- especially for the breakfast!

We ordered a meal and unfortunately because of the way it was cooked I could not eat it. When I explained I was offered something else. But although the first dish was not eaten I was still charged for it.
