We’re one of York’s hidden gems, a stylish urban cafe in Hungate very close to the Shambles in York city centre. We serve handmade sandwiches, wraps, cakes, ice cream sundaes, hot and cold drinks and more. We have a good selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes to choose from and change our specials seasonally.

Our cafe is accessible for wheelchair users.
