Harlequin Cafe, York

 On a recent trip to York, we decided to start off with a coffee, a quick search on Google and the Harlequin Cafe kept featuring with good reviews so we decided to head there.
It is located on King Square, near the Minster and The Shambles. It is quite easy to miss as it is just a doorway next to a Bookmakers. The cafe is located on the 1st floor above it.

The cafe is light and airy with various art prints on the walls. It was reasonably busy considering its location. we sat down and a friendly waitress came over and took our order, I opted to try their house blend served in an individual French Press. The Other Half decided on a cold drink and chose Fentimens Dandelion and Burdock.
Service was very good, quick and friendly, I was pleased to be offered the choice of cold/hot milk or cream with my coffee.

The coffee itself was very good, rich with subtle hints of chocolate. A variety of usual cafe food was on offer such as sandwiches soup etc... the selection of cakes also looked very tempting but with our next stop being the food festival we resisted.
Overall a very good coffee house and a little oasis from the hustle of York on a Saturday
