Just been here for coffee and tea cakes for my wife and homemade soup for me. All superb, good value and charming and friendly staff. Visited Helmsley many times before but never this place. It will be our regular haunt from now on. Gutted it has taken us to many visits before finding it. A five star tea room.

Stopped by here whilst visiting the area with the intention of ensuring our kids didn't get hungry. One of those little gems of a place where your experience gets better and better. Warm service and a good food selection. When the food arrived it was obvious the owner has an attention to detail, our son loved the soup and the... More

Went searching for a lunchtime snack whilst visiting Helmsely at the weekend. We're a regular visitor to Helmsley and we've tried several cafes over the years. Following good TA reviews we decided to try The Cocoa Tree. Simply put friendly staff and very good food. My wife had a baked spud with some filling and I had the bacon roll... More

We followed this with a piece of cake I had the fruit cake with... More

Visited here recently whilst looking for somewhere to lunch whilst in Helmsley, the place was full which is always a good sign for us. Very welcoming owners, nothing seemed too much trouble and listening to the service others were getting they were quite willing to prepare special items if they could to please customers. Food arrived quickly and was very... More

The visit to Helmsley Castle was really worth the 2 hour journey to get there as you can easily visit Rievaulx Abbey also which is in the same area. In need of a sit down and a cream tea we were lucky to find the Cocoa Tree as the welcome for all of us (four dogs remember?) was warm and... More
