The beast coffee and food. Far better than you would think for a small town. The staff could not be faulted. They not only gave great service, but also gave us ideas for place to go and visit that were not the usual things you think of.

So impressed with this little gem. Had smashed avocado and poached egg which was beautiful with an extremely generous portion of avocado. Coffees were great and the lovely waitress came over with treats for our little dog. Will 100% be back :) fantastic staff

Unexpectedly found ourselves in Bedale - charming little market town with a really nice atmosphere - a decided to have a light lunch.

Welcomed in (because our dogs could tuck in a corner) everything about this place is very good.

The food is excellent, the staff are very attentive and professional. It’s comfortable and unhurried and you won’t get robbed!

The panini fillings are unusual and the salad bowls really tasty.

So in a world where average tends to dominate, the exceptional needs remarking on and this place is exceptional. We are not certain how long they have been trading but whatever success they are now having is well deserved.
