Yorkshire coffee - where to drink - Selby/Doncaster/Pontefract/Goole

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty much in the middle of four towns. And it's something of a coffee desert.

I generally end up at Starbucks, for my sins, as it's the only commercial place that allows dogs near me - and I figure if I'm going to drink bad coffee, I may as well have some company!

So - is there anywhere decent to get a coffee in:

Selby

Doncaster

Pontefract

Goole

?

I want to find a few places that know what they're doing, so that when I start myself I have some kind of benchmark to set against.....

Any help would be much appreciated! :D

I lived in Osgodby for a while (near Selby) and never found anywhere in Selby. I now live in Goole, and haven't found anywhere there either. No idea about Sunny-Donny or Pontecarlo..

Absolutely. You could travel east to Hull (but I realise it’s a bit out of your area)

Is there anywhere over your way?

 

And I'm about an hour from York, whether it's up or down the road! :(

Many thanks for the excellent recommendation!

Popped over today with my woofer and they welcomed him with open arms :D

Had an Americano to start, which was lovely, followed by a flat white.

And oh my days! What a drink! It's like I've never had a flat white before.

Needless to say, I shall definitely return.

Really glad you enjoyed it! The reviews have been a bit up and down lately. We only ever have coffee (it's the food side that sounds like it is letting things down a bit).

 

We always take our dog in too :)

York is my place of work, I live in between there and Leeds. My closest to home would be Cielo in Garforth; both cafe and roaster, operating in a highly ethical manner. (all profits given away) Bizarrely I have never been in, but I think it is @JezH that has been a yay sayer for them on more than one occasion. Sadly another that is not so close for you...Glad Mildred came to the rescue for you.

I thought i must of wrote this thread myself when i saw it as i live exactly in between Selby/Doncaster/Pontefract/Goole!

 

I am a service engineer so have visited pretty much all of the places that there is to visit in the area and unfortunately I am still on the quest for somewhere decent!

 

If you are ever passing through Eggborough you are more than welcome to pop into the workshop, i always have something on the bench that we can use, for testing purposes of course! :D

Yep, love Cielo. Great coffee & cafe, slap bang in the centre of Leeds. Free coffee when buying a bag of beans!

Popped back in today with MLW. Different experience - however, although the coffee was excellent, the food was not.

When I go back, I'll just stick to the coffee :D

Oh dear, what a pity. Well, at least we know now . . . stick to the coffee (maybe a cake, although last time they didn't have much choice to be honest).
