Everyone needs somewhere they can go to catch up with friends & family, read a book or spend some time alone, and that’s exactly what we had in mind when we started out. Everything from fresh home - made food & treats to delicious coffee, we’ve got everything you need right here. Steve & Christine welcome you to this hidden, quirky little gem. Overlooking Shambles market we offer two themed floors, music & film inspired.
Our coffee is freshly ground, we use Arabica medium roast beans, suitable for anytime of the day. We also do speciality teas and hot chocolates, a varied range of smoothies and milkshakes and also a well stocked fridge with cold soft drinks. We also have a well stocked bar, but our licence does require food to be consumed.

Built in 1337 12 Newgate is one of the oldest houses in York. Built on the cemetery of St. Sampson. 12 Newgate over looks Shambles market and has good views of York Minster & St. Sampson church. From 1337 until 1970 the building was occupied as a house. From 1970 until 2015 it was an opticians. From 2015 it was transformed into a film & music themed café. The top floor is haunted, there have been several sightings of things that cannot be explained. This is a one of a kind building with wooden floors & oak beams. The quirky atmosphere adds to the charm it has to be seen to be appreciated.
We pride ourselves on using local suppliers, our sausages are supplied by the butcher, Swains of York are only 12ft away on the market. All our food is home - made. We have a varied menu and we feel we cater for everyone.
