Great scones and coffee while we decided which plants to buy for our garden. The young man behind the counter was a delight, so pleasant and smiling.

Our cafe is situated inside Skelton Garden Centre and seats 48 in comfortable light and airy surroundings, including an outdoor covered area which makes a pleasant setting in suitable weather. The family-run cafe offers a sumptuous range of hot and cold sandwiches, soup and delicious quiches, as well as homemade cakes and scones. All our food is freshly prepared on the premises and made to order. We are situated conveniently near the footpath and cycle track which go through Skelton and we welcome all visitors for tea and scones, a spot of lunch or a cool beverage.
