“ Out FAVOURITE cafe, ever! One of the reasons we moved to the area. The food is all created fresh using local sourced ingredients. Is a good price and fantastic quality. They have a menu board to check and stop serving food at 3pm. They are happy to offer half sizes for the kids. There is also a selection of toys and books. ”

“Just a short walk out of town to Bishopthorpe Road area you will find a bustling high street with plenty of places to eat and do a spot of local grocery shopping. Angel on the Green, a converted bike shop still has a repair service and small area with bike accessories. A local independent place to relax and enjoy a drink and something to eat. They always offer a specials board with light bites and something a little more substantial. Try the fish finger sandwich.....fresh light battered fish goujons between two thick slices of soda bread! Delicious! Homemade food, with something for everyone.”
