“Yummy sandwiches, cakes and cookies”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

A yummy hidden little gem just off the high street in Horbury, nothing fancy/flashy looking from the outside, but inside full of complete yumminess :)

Upon entering the premises, you walk into the "deli" side of the business, filled with luxury yummy cheeses, meats, pate and home baked bread. Also shelves packed with local home made yummy produce, the chilli jam is one of Mr yummys favourites, along with a collection of wine you dont find in the usual off licences that sell everything all the same.

The sandwiches here are fantastic, the choices are so different and obviously a lot of thought has gone into the menu. Mr yummys favourite is brie, roasted peppers and chilli jam, its so yummy, so different to the usual "cheese salad" you could buy anywhere, served on home baked yummy ciabbatta bread.

The wraps are also yummy, like the mexican chicken with guacamole, or the duck and hoisin sauce...

The home made cakes and scones, all yummy, fresh and delicious.

The staff all very friendly, smiley and helpfull, they all seem very proud to work there and its a fantastic little place to eat or get a takeaway yummy sandwich

“Beats The High Street Chains Hands Down”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

£2.90 for a warm ginger scone with butter plus a decent sized/decent tasting mug of latte - you just can't beat it. AND the coffee stayed hot right down to the bottom of the mug - you don't get that in Starbucks! Quiet unobtrusive place you could so easily miss then live to regret it. Go visit - TODAY!

Have visited here on numerous occasions. Always of a high standard. The food is delicious and the staff are always pleasant. Attached to a well stocked deli. Just what Horbury needs. Well worth a visit.

“We love it !”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

This is a fantastic deli and lunch cafe , we go at least once a week and have always had a wonderful experience. Mike and Debbie are great hosts and the menu is a great mix of comforting treats (my favourite being Cheese on toast with red onions etc ), and more interesting deli type sandwiches and wraps. And the cakes are to die for !!!

“Lovely little place!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I love this little place in Horbury - the food and service are both good and it is well worth a visit. I've always found the staff obliging and helpful and the selection of cheese, bread and other deli items extremely fresh and tasty.
