“Pastries of the highest quality” elevate this Scandi-style café beyond the high street norm – “and they do a mean coffee”. Owner Paul Rawlinson’s other Scandi venture, the restaurant Norse, closed down after four years in 2018, but the café is thriving as it approaches its tenth anniversary this year.

Paul Rawlinson may have shut down his beloved Norse, but his other local venture, albeit “cramped”, remains “way beyond what other numerous high street coffee shops can offer”; “the brews are absolutely delicious” and “the bakes (Scandi buns etc) are brilliant…”: “go for the waffles – the big secret is they’re gluten-free and you don’t even notice it!”

“Ahead of its time! In tune with the community and the world!” – Paul Rawlinson may have closed Norse (RIP) but his ‘other’ Harrogate spot sails on with its “fabulous coffee, incredible hot chocolate, outstanding baking and a tasty real food menu too”. “The Scandi-based menu is a great thing to have on a dank morning (we’re in North Yorks, it’s not unheard of!)”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
