Description: 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.

This is a rather good, independent garden centre with top quality product and the on site cafe follows suit. The cafe is roomy, bright, spotlessly clean and has a very good selection of food.

With my generous pot of Yorkshire tea I couldn't decide whether to have a couple of slices of tea bread with butter or a scone with jam, but when the bloke in front of me ordered a bacon roll all bets were off! And the aforementioned bacon roll was so nice I have decided that a return visit is in order to try the full breakfast!

For a small cafe the menu here is actually very good and in addition to the cakes, sandwiches, toasties etc you can have homemade soup, jacket potatoes, salads, quiche, ham egg and chips and even a lamb tagine.

And as a bonus- service when I was there was by a lovely, friendly lady.

What more could you ask for? Highly recommended.

We stopped here after struggling to find a decent place for breakfast. Very pleasantly surprised. Great value and the food was cooked to perfection. Couldn't fault it. Will definitely be back again.

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.

This cafe is hidden away in a low key I dependant garden centre but it's just up my street. It's a little temple to home cooking and baking and it's all cooked freshly it puts high street chains to shame .

Can't recommend the scones , the quiche , the bake well tart highly enough delicious .
