We discovered this cafe on a weekend visit to Pickering and enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time. A good range of food is available for lunch and some delicious cakes too. The service was very friendly and efficient both times. This cafe is definitely worth a visit!

Come here every year on our holiday after discovering this little gem of a place. A friendly welcome, a lovely selection of cakes and pastries alongside a lunch and breakfast menu. The food is really good And my husband declares one of the best coffee's in Yorkshire.

Two of us had the special sausage rolls (pork and haggis option) - very good - and I had tasty mackerel pate with fresh toast, also good. All with fresh salad, including pomegranate.

My partner and I regularly visit cafe cocoa for breakfast. And it is always perfect. They cater for my vegan partner with none of the awkwardness some establishments have and the sausage and bacon for myself is top quality. They are open at regular times so,unlike some places,you don't have to guess whether they will be open or not! Keep... More
