What’s On at Hungate Reading Cafe
We’re a family-friendly Explore Reading Cafe with plenty of space, and we’re part of Explore Libraries and Archives so you can borrow or return books, get a library card, settle down to read or write, or explore our exciting programme of pop-up events and regular activities for adults, families and children.
Under 5s Storytime and Crafts: Every Tuesday 10.30-11.30am drop-in.
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.
