Reviewed 27 October 2013

We stopped off here while we waited for our train home. We had intended to visit the restaurant in the city during our stay but we didn't get around to it. However, remembering that there was a good option on gluten free we thought we'd give it a go.

Although it's right on the platform area it's surprisingly bright, clean and welcoming. The staff knew their menu very well and were great at offering alternatives to items that were not available (it was near the end of the day and as the food is fresh there's not stacks of it sitting around being kept warm) 2 of us had bagels and they were freshly prepared and delicious, excellent smoked salmon, fresh spinach, salted beef, gerkins - lovely. One of us had the tagine of the day, hot, fresh, totally home made and full of flavour - not words usually attributed to gluten free offerings. The broccoli and mint soup was also delicious. Although more expensive than we would usually choose it was well worth it for choice (especially g/f), portion size, freshness, great friendly service and nice clean environment.

We ate in the upstairs restaurant which has a much more limited menu than the downstairs bakery. We had chicken salad, which was nice but severely over priced at £11.95 each, for leaves, chicken breast (not sure it was a full one), and dressing. We left feeling ripped off.

Arrived at York Station and found Filmore & Union tucked away by platform 5 - but what a find! Had a slim juice and it was delicious - saw it being made, so know there was nothing but fresh fruit. Was a super find and I stopped there on my return journey so I had something healthy on the way home. Will definitely be using them again when I'm travelling - which is frequently!

Friendly service with the most amazing gluten free salads, soups and cakes. Will be using this little gem for my lunch every time I'm visiting York.

We recently visited York for a family wedding. We arrived shortly before lunch, and our hotel rooms weren’t yet available. We asked the concierge to recommend a restaurant nearby that might offer something gluten-free (for one of our in-laws) and something vegetarian, and they suggested Filmore & Union. It was perfect – perfect location, fabulous fresh food, and friendly, helpful staff.
