A Note About Our Opening Hours

Due to everything that has happened over the last 4 years, we have been forced to economise, downsize and generally run an extremely tight ship on one shift. And costs have skyrocketed, as they have for all our customers and most businesses, with small and micro businesses like us feeling it most, so there is little room for error.

This means we must close our doors according to how trade falls away each day, which varies with, as yet, no weekly pattern. Without customers, there is no point in remaining open, so we will close accordingly to minimise our costs.

Consequently, our closing times are variable. Very quiet days could see us closed by 2pm, while busier days may see us open as late as 3 to 3:30pm. With only three of us on the team, 9am to around 3pm is the maximum we can offer at present.

Nevertheless, we endeavour to close as consistently as possible, which is currently between 2:00 and 2:30pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

Obviously, all of this is subject to change as circumstances change.

Everything we do
is made by hand
on the premises
every day



We make our own chicken liver paté, with brandy and herbs. We make our own hummus, and we don’t shirk on the garlic. We make our own, unique and delicious salads — red cabbage, carrot, couscous, pasta, beans — with orange, soy, balsamic — all manner of dressings. We make scones daily — to our own, special recipe. We make exceptional quiche — like you’ve never tasted — with brie, taleggio, feta, leeks, blue cheese, chorizo, mushrooms, caramelised onions, Mediterranean vegetables… The list goes on.

Everything we make is to recipes developed through years of experience.

And it’s all made here
on the premises
every day
by us

Yes, it’s hard work, but it’s good work, and worth it, so we can bring you something which is becoming increasingly rare — wholesome, tasty, fresh, unprocessed, delicious food — healthy for mind, body and soul.
A consummate, delectable treat.

Our Thoughts on Food

We believe that all food is healthy and subscribe to the view that too much of a good thing is bad. We believe ingredients such as refined sugar, carbohydrates, salt, fats, and oils are harmless, as long as they are consumed in moderation and as part of a wide-ranging, balanced diet, including everything from cheese, eggs, milk, meat and fish, to fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and pulses. We love lettuce and tomato and red cabbage salad, as much as bacon butties, vegetable quiche and chocolate cake with chocolate filling, chocolate icing and chocolate chips on top, showered in with double cream and diary ice cream — once a week! A little bit of something you fancy, every once in a while, is healthy in every way — for mind, for body and especially for the soul.

Relax in our cosy café

We offer a handmade selection of vegetarian salads, delicious quiche, simply the best bacon butties or unbeatable local sausage sandwiches. Choose small meals or combine them into a veritable feast. We accommodate snacks for the kids, stock a wide range of teas, and brew what we believe to be the greatest coffee in the proper world* – all delivered to your table in our cosy little café.

Anyone for tea?

The British drink tea with milk. In Yorkshire we drink Yorkshire tea — a proper brew — and we have all you can drink. You’re in God’s own country so expect nothing less.

Then there’s the fussy stuff, delicious, but sometimes difficult to pronounce, and too numerous to list here. So here’s some pictures instead.

Coffee: Our Story

It took us years to find a good coffee roast. You see, if there is one up-side to travelling away from Yorkshire to the continent, then it’s the coffee. Continental people enjoy a big advantage over Yorkshire folk. You can easily find great coffee wherever you go… And we thought, “We can’t be settling for bad coffee anymore.”

We set out to find the best coffee supplier in Britain. We wanted the good stuff and no messing about. It took a while — years —and as often happens with these things, rather than us finding a company, a company found us.

Anyway, believe me, while we were looking we tasted a lot of mediocre, bad and extremely terrible coffee, while being told how good it was — roasted in this way or that, Arabica, Robusta wot-not and such… We nearly gave up. Then, one afternoon, Caffe Vinci persuaded us to give them a try.

As a result of this happy accident, what we believe to be the best coffee in the proper world*, is available in our little part of Yorkshire.

Partnered with our British suppliers in Middlesbrough, we can pretty much nearly guarantee that you’ll be hard-pushed to find a better cup-o-coffee anywhere else.
