We are a dysfunctional family run neighbourhood cafe on Bishopthorpe Road in York. Since 2008
We serve Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Sandwiches, Salads, Daily Changing Specials, Home Baking, relationship advice, Tripadvisor bribes and more...
It's too easy to simply write 'we source locally' on the menu. It's too vague, but it's become ubiquitous in recent years.
Equally, menus that are sprinkled with names and places can be difficult to read. So we do our best, we choose local and seasonal when we can and here are some of our regular suppliers and producers...
Brunswick Organic Nursery just up the road in Bishopthorpe provide us with great organic salads, fruit and vegetables. They also do amazing work helping adults with learning difficulties http://www.brunswickyork.org.uk/about.php

Yorkshire Dama provide us with their amazing ‘halloumi’ cheese. Yorkshire Dama Cheese is a story of inspirational bravery by a woman who refused to let her circumstances define or constrain her.
