Coffee Shop

The ‘Gardeners Choice’ Coffee Shop was opened in July 1995 as part of an extension to the Garden Centre at our Scarborough site and has proved popular with our customers ever since.

We serve a variety of hot and cold snacks from bacon rolls to our delicious home-made scones which are freshly baked every day, or why not choose a more substantial home-cooked meal from our daily specials board. We also offer a selection of vegetarian options, and products made from non-gluten containing ingredients.

Gardener’s Choice is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm and Sunday’s 10.00am to 4.30pm, with lunches being served from 11.30am to 2.30pm daily.

We also serve a selection of speciality teas and coffees as well as a selection of cold beverages. Our coffee is made with Puro, a blend of coffees which are ethically traded with Fair Trade Certification and a percentage of the profit from every cup we sell is donated to the World Land Trust.

If you still have room, why not treat yourself to one of our traditional puddings or cakes served with cream, custard or locally produced ice-cream from Ryeburn of Helmsley.

Coach parties are welcome, but prior notification is preferred. To make enquiries or to let us know you wish to visit us, please telephone 01723 361814 and ask to speak to one of our Coffee Shop staff. Please note however, we are unable to reserve tables.
