My partner and my son and I caught some late lunch. Quick service with keen staff, food was fresh and yummy and the desert was extremely tasty! Homemade brownie was served on a napkin which actually stuck to the brownie?! but my partner seemed to have no bother trying to eat it anyway it was that good! Clean and tidy... More

First time I'd eaten here in the evening rather than during the day. Unfortunately there's nothing for vegans on the menu but I was able to order from the daytime menu, albeit with the cheese omitted. The food is of a very good standard, the service a little patchy but ok, and it was lovely and cosy inside on a... More

I have just one tiny 'gripe'...it is... More

Had a great lunch with the family. The food was really good and the staff were very helpful getting a high chair when they saw we had an 11 month old with us. There is a nice atmosphere in the place. Would of been an excellent but food did quite a long time to come.

We were looking for somewhere for a nice bit of lunch and thought this place would be ideal. However we were left very disappointed as food took 50 minutes to arrive. After 35 minutes of waiting we asked about the delay and the waitress said she'd check, 15 minutes later she had not even bothered to return to the table... More

One of several coffee come cafes in Leyburn. A modern well furnished interior and an unrushed attitude provided the perfect venue to pass an hour. Pleasant, modern venue with good service was our experience - will be interested to read about yours?

Dropped in for lunch on a cold day. 2 paninis and 2 lattes cost £18. Paninis were served with a good side salad and a few homemade chips. Food and drinks arrived quickly and staff were friendly. Busy enough to have a nice atmosphere, but did not feel crowded. Will visit again!

Had lunch here; beef sandwiches with chips. Absolutely delicious, but we waited for 35 minutes before it arrived and it wasn't particularly busy. Staff really nice, food was great but just need to speed things up!
