We arrived in Leyburn and had only 20 minutes before needing to leave for an arranged appointment. We were recommended this as a good convenient place to try for a cup of coffee. You enter through a general store below,selling candles and household decorations . You then head up the stairs to the cafe, so it is easy to miss... More

We were in need of a hot, reviving cup of coffee and that was what we got. The cakes all looked delicious but we managed to resist them. Very friendly and efficient staff.

I asked for an extra-shot Cappuccino and it was perfect, piping hot and delicious! The toasted sandwiches are lovely with a little salad garnish and crisps. A good simple cafe serving lovely lunches and cakes.

This café offers great freshly cooked food, the home made cakes are particularly inviting. Staff and ambience are good. Gets busy due to popularity with locals

Sadly this place has lost its way, staff were rude and stuck up - unless you're spending hundreds in the shop they do not want to help. Will not be visiting again.

Each time we are in Leyburn we try to have lunch at Serendipity. The staff are very friendly and efficient and the food is lovely, although when we visited there was no soup left. The shop below is well worth a browse - we found some lovely things to buy..

Service can be a bit slow, at times, but the staff are friendly and the food is always worth waiting for.
