Their buttered Arabian poached eggs with cumin butter sauce, pink onion pickle, yogurt, chilli and sourdough toast was the perfect pick-me-up for our autumnal ride and absolutely fantastic, perhaps one of our best brunches!


A welcome, refreshing different menu offering a wide selection of all-day brunch and breakfast bites alongside homemade cakes and their own fantastic coffee (roasted since 2016)


Cappuccino (£3.20), loose-leaf tea (£2.80), cakes (£3.00 - £3.50), Arabian buttered eggs (pictured, £10.00), Yorks full breakfast (large with dukkah potatoes, £14.00), eggs Benedict (from £11.00), Marrakesh avocado toast / avo feta toast (£9.00), lamb kofta tagine (£13.00), Chicago honey fried chicken (£12.50), Greek house breakfast (£11.00), Turkish eggs (£8.50), sourdough toast (£3.70), eggs on toast (£6.00), breakfast baps (£6.50)


There's limited space for your bikes directly beside their seated outdoor terrace out front. Additionally you’ll find public bike racking to the right of the cafe at the junction of Ely Street by HSBC bank


With a quick turnaround and plenty of seating both inside and out in their terrace, all but the largest of groups should have no trouble finding a seat. Advanced bookings can be made via their website. If visiting at the weekend do expect it to be busy (for good reason)


The perfect pitstop whilst exploring Shakespeares’ Stratford-upon-Avon and set a stones throw from the tranquil River Avon. Once refuelled there's one of our favourite routes from here out towards Welford-on-Avon, Mickleton, Chipping Campden and into the stunning Cotswolds ANOB

Located within a stunning 17th century beamed townhouse in the heart of Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon is a fabulous kitchen and coffee shop serving up their own superb coffee roast, award winning brunch specials and freshly baked cakes to hungry tourists and visiting cyclists alike.

On the all day brunch menu you’ll find a welcome and refreshing change from the norm with delights including a buttery Arabian eggs (pictured), stupendous Yorks full breakfast served with dukkah potatoes, varying eggs Benedict options, a Marrakesh style avocado toast, lamb kofta tagine, Chicago honey fried chicken or Greek house breakfast to name a few. Smaller bites include their freshly baked sourdough toast with preserve, a range of ‘eggs on toast’ options and their popular filled breakfast baps too.

A high accolade but we believe Yorks’ brunches are up there with some of the best we’ve tasted. During our last visit we had the buttered Arabian poached eggs served with cumin butter sauce, pink onion pickle, yogurt, chilli and sourdough toast (pictured), the perfect pitstop food for our autumnal ride and absolutely fantastic!

On display in the window are their famous and very tasty homemade sponge cakes ranging from lemon, sorrel & polenta, espresso, American coffee, carrot, chocolate & banana (vegan) or a Persian raspberry slice. Additionally there’s date, tahini & rose or matcha brownies, white chocolate blondies and a Mozambique style banana bread to tempt you too.

The coffee is their own and is absolutely fantastic, roasted at their Stephenson Street store in central Birmingham. Up for trying something new I sampled one of their beetroots cappuccinos, a refreshing and delicious change to my usual cappuccino caffeine fix.

Service is quick and you’ll find plenty of seating both inside or out in their undercover terrace. Advanced bookings can be made via their website and are advised if visiting on the weekend as it does get rather busy. Aside from room beside the outdoor terraced seating the nearest bike racking is available at the junction of Ely Street by HSBC.
