A hip coffee and tea shop equally famous for its take on classic café food
In a cool atmosphere of chrome, bare bulbs and tiles, guests can find a wide range of coffees and teas, from the classic line-up of Americanos and Cappuccinos to local specials. Food includes classic fried breakfasts and eggs benedict, plus sourdough sandwiches and ciabatta, put together from local brands such as Haxby’s and M&K butchers.
Then there’s the smashed avocado with harissa oil. And of course, brownies: salted caramel, biscoff, cookie dough and even Oreo (excitingly, the classic American confectionary is given a Yorkshire twist). On that note, Bew & Brownie is also famous for the stacked syrupy pancakes, with salted caramel, or yoghurt and honey, or blueberries. Most of the dishes are also available in vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free.
