We have the best street food, drinks, events, and independent pop-up retailers to keep the whole family (including four-legged friends) occupied.

We are located in the centre of York on Piccadilly, and open six days a week, Tuesday to Sunday – coffee and pastries from 9am, food and drinks from 12pm. Our venue is inclusive and fully accessible (lift available) – entry is free and there’s no need to book, simply turn up.
