A non-chain coffee shop with excellent service, good food and drink. Such a pleasant change from the huge paper cups of coffee

This is across from the art gallery so 4 of us went across for lunch on a Saturday. It was quite busy, with bench type seating and a handful of tables inside, so we sat out where there were an extra 3 tables. I had fish finger ciabatta with tomato salsa and homemade coleslaw and tartare dressing- very yummy. Their coffee is fab and I'm a bit fussy about coffee! All in it only cost around £10. I did notice soup near the Minster cost around £6. This little cafe is only a 5 min walk away and cost £3.90. A super little find! My friends had a BLT type bite in ciabatta which they too enjoyed.

After a morning in the Minster and walking the walls we just happened on this small cafe. The place was bright and airy and the food was very tasty. I had a Bacon, lettuce and tomato brunch which was filling and really pleasant. The coffee was great and the staff were pleasant and eager to please. Great place - now I know where it is I would certainly go again

The food here is mostly good but it's not prepared on the premises, so if you arrive late in the day they often run out of some of their choices. If you are here for a while their small menu will mean you don't want to go in every day.

As a plus their staff are friendly and their coffee is decent, although more bitter than some of the blends you might be used to - for the first time in a while I had to put some sugar in my coffee.

What a lovely coffee shop. We stopped as it was a wet day in York. We are glad it was raining now as the coffee was fantastic. This is worth a visit even on any day. Great place to spend some time before heading to the Art Gallery or the Minster. A hidden gem in the city walls - one that would be so easy to miss. Make sure you track it down before or after taking a walk along the wall.
