Called for coffee and a light meal, the service was great, the staff polite and food good. All of the staff were exceptionally kind to a lady with learning difficulties and the whole ambience was relaxed and friendly. We don't often go to Skipton but when we do we will most definitely be back at Hettie's.

I visited Hettie's twice this summer. The first time was a Friday evening when they serve a simple menu and a selection of wines as well as coffee, tea, cakes, etc. The food was delicious, and the piano accompaniment added to the atmosphere without being overbearing. It was really enjoyable. The second time was for lunch. Again, the food was great. There were young families and couples of all ages, and everyone seemed to be enjoying their time there. The staff were very friendly. The upstairs room has nice big windows and feels light and airy. I recommend Hettie's to anyone who is visiting Skipton.

I visited this Skipton café with a friend for the first time since it was taken over some weeks ago by the new owners and given a new name. It has been smartened up significantly and the staff went to great lengths to make us welcome and take an interest in us. They do great coffee and although we did not eat on this occasion, we will be back to do so as the food menu was very good. There is lots of space as there is also an upstairs area if the downstairs is full. Another real bonus with this café bistro is that they open through teatime into the early evening on certain days of the week. . Great if you want to go to a café later in the day as most cafes in Skipton close at 5 pm. Good luck to Hettie's owners. They deserve to succeed in their venture.
