We have been meaning to visit this place for a while now. Thankfully we finally got around to it, and what a delight. The staff are wonderful, so friendly and welcoming.

We discovered this cafe on a weekend visit to Pickering and enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time. A good range of food is available for lunch and some delicious cakes too. The service was very friendly and efficient both times. This cafe is definitely worth a visit!

Two of us had the special sausage rolls (pork and haggis option) - very good - and I had tasty mackerel pate with fresh toast, also good. All with fresh salad, including pomegranate.
