Brew and Brownie
Great food and cake in a stylish coffee shop
Sun: 09.30 – 16.00
You won’t be let down if you come here expecting two of the things they’re named after – coffee, tea and slabs of gooey chocolatey-ness – done well. So, what other things should you look out for? Head over hungry in the morning and grab a plate of their stacked pancakes topped with blueberries and bacon or opt for one of their simple sandwiches made with excellent ingredients.
You could also just sit with a pot of loose leaf tea and try to avoid the glare of the creative cake table. Whatever you pop in for, take moment to enjoy the distinctive interiors and furniture – the counter, from an old Aberdeen bakery, was bought at an antiques fair, the flooring reclaimed from a Victorian school and the soft furnishings were originally made by a friend of the owners so you can see how they’ve put their stamp on the place.
“We built Brew and Brownie on the image of somewhere we’d like to go in York. We hope that people enjoy coming here for a comfortable and contemporary environment to eat good food and drink great brews.”
