Perky Peacock is nice on Lendle bridge in the little tower (there used to be a chain stretched across the river from this tower to stop people entering the city at night IIRC.) They have to bring in all their water and take all the waste away from this one as there are no utilities apart from electric. Don't want to ask what the staff do for a loo - though with it being on the river.. ermm.. I've not been to the other one on Gillygate.

Output: KVdW Speedster + V60 + AeroPress + Syphon + Bialetti Induction Moka Pot + Bialetti Mucka Express + jar of instant for visitors..

The Gillygate one has shut. I didn't bother going in the coffee shop that replaced it. the other one on Lendal Bridge was OK though. Harlequin/Attic was closed when ever I went past it, their loss. :p

 

Brew & Brownie was very good, So much so I went in there twice & that's rare for me.

 

Spring I gave a miss too, as I can go to a fair amount of places that serve Square Mile within a 45 Minute train trip.

The Fossgate Social I went in there by mistake but that was OK.

 

The best Flat White I drank in York was also in Fossgate, it was Kiosk: Project Space.

 

All in all I liked Yorks Coffee Scene, I may go back next year.

@Grimley not heard of Kiosk as I've not been to York city centre for a while. Who's coffee do they use?

Brew & Brownie use Carvetii Roasters in Northumberland, Fossgate Social use Union.

The Attic at Harlequin is only open Thur/Fri/Sat and uses Has Bean. Went in Harlequin by mistake and it reminded me of a café my granny would've liked. The Attic is different again.

Didn't know about Perkies on Gillygate as it's still on their website.

@Rhys Kiosk is the shop to the right of the entrance of Merchant Adventurers’ Hall in Fossgate, more or less opposite Fossgate Social. I saw a Bag of Dark Woods roasters on the Counter. Its also a Art gallery shop of sorts too.

Ah right. Streetview from June 2016 doesn't show a name above the door so must be pretty new. Dark Woods did a DSOL a while ago that went down pretty well.

I've given up with York! I can't understand exactly why there isn't a really decent coffee shop (some already mentioned here have been ok but never really good on the visits I've made)!

 

Beverly, a bit south of York, has a couple of decent places (Cafe Velo comes to mind). I've found a pot of good old Yorkshire Tea is often the best option, and I can stomach that if I can get a good slice of something yummy!!

I live in York so I’ll feed into this for anyone’s future reference. In my opinion Kiosk is the place to go for coffee. Predominantly supplied by Darkwoods. Russ is a top bloke and he makes really nice food (albeit he does take his time depending on his mood).

Attic is ok, solid when I frequented a few years back. Good place for a few quite beers though.  

Spring has been hit and miss for me recently, usually it’s ok (Red Brick). Had the sourest flat white I’ve ever had the other day :(
