Sat outside in the sun (shame the road is so busy, though the cafe is a bit set back from it) and enjoyed our drinks, especially the Earl Grey. The croissant I had was nothing special, but I took a hot-cross bun home for my partner and he was very impressed with it.

The bakery was easily accessible from road way and situated in the centre of the village near a ford, it was a beautiful sunny day we chose to eat outside at the seating designed for this purpose. The food was well prepared and had a wide selection to choose from

Since taking over the bakery the new owners have transformed it. The take away fish pie and the meat balls are very good as are all the cakes and pastries . A great asset to the village of Hovingham.

We had a lovely, well prepared and very tasty lunch whilst exploring Hovingham. It's location and friendly staff made it a place to revisit in the future.

Visited for breakfast as only a few miles from us and what a let down. Extremely over priced at £8.95 which we wouldn't mind had the quality matched the price! The bacon was inedible and the mushrooms tasted dirty. The sausage was ok but still average at best. I think the biggest let down was the fact that the full... More

Really good quality bakery with range of pasties, pies, breads, rolls, etc - all you need for a good picnic. There are benches outside if it's sunny. The cafe itself is a bit bland and looked relatively pricey.

As we popped in here on a cold wet day we had the cafe to ourselves, so service was quick. It was also very friendly. We were only here for a snack and our generous pot of tea was nice, as were the tea cakes and cheese scones, which were all baked in-house. The bakery is in a nice position... More

This is a little cafe attached to the village bakery. Simple fare but just right for a stop for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Very happy to recommend.
