This is a little bit about us and some of our team members.
Our team work very hard to give each customer the ultimate expericence, whether it be to visit us in the coffee shop or dining on an
evening in our Bistro, each team member will look after your needs.
You will meet a number of different team members during your visit and each will greet you with a warm Yorkshire smile. They are all knowledgeable about the area and can advise on walks and days out within the Yorkshire Dales.
Owners Adele & Rick
We are both very passionate people and love the outdoors. Our favourite place being the French Alps, where we have had many holidays, both in the summer time biking, paddling and climbing, and Skiing in the winter.
We also love walking with our little dog Lola. She is slowly turning into a grumpy old lady, being 16 years old now, but she still loves to run around the hills and explore the many walks in Grassington.
Both the Coffee Shop and Bistro setting are inspired by both of our travels and endless happy hours in coffee shops. We hope you take away many happy memories from ours.
