Believe the reviews, the breakfast,cakes and coffee are probably the best in York. Highly recommended. Service with a smile too. Be prepared to queue at busy times.

My partner and I read the reviews for this place before we visited York and it did not disappoint! We arrived 5 minutes before opening time and there was already a queue forming which only proves how incredible it is! Food and drinks arrived speedily...despite it being a full house from the moment the customers were seated. I had the special breakfast (cinnamon and apple French toast) and my partner had the bacon and maple syrup pancakes - both were delicious! Would definitely recommend!More

Super friendly staff, tasty breakfasts with a good variety of dishes and the cakes selection was amazing. We visited twice during our trip to York. Highly recommend if you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a coffee and relax!

Completely new to York and did not know where to have a nice bit to eat. My friend recommended Brew and Brownie and wow what an amazing place. The food is amazing. Love the avocado and poached eggs. Place can be VERY busy and space...is limited - I don't know if you can book in advance. Definitely worth a visit;More

Amazing place - we stayed at The Grand Hotel but found this little gem nearby. We ate breakfast there every day for the week - and bought some of their sourdough and brownies to take home on the last day - would highly recommend!

This was a recommendation by an air B and B in York and it really was great. The food is super tasty and there’s a lot of thought gone into each dish. The cakes and sweet selection is incredible. Worth a visit if you’re in...York for sure!More

Really great menu. Pancakes, cooked breakfast, sandwiches and an amazing selection of cakes. My wife and I had breakfast ciabattas which were humongous and very delicious. We also had a cookie because we’re greedy and it was delicious. Staff very friendly. Would return!

Fabulous little coffee shop with amazing range of unusual brownies & cakes! Gorgeous coffee, great service & yummy brownies!! Oh and independent too. Unfortunately not gluten free (for my husband) but allergy statement is clear which is helpful.

It depends upon the weather a little but on the weekend at that time I would expect a wait. Maybe 15 -20 minutes. You could be lucky and get a table straight away. It is relatively small and given how great the food is it is... More
