Micklegate on a weekend is buzzing with locals - and for good reason. One of the many independent businesses sat along the royal street is Gulp and Graze, which serves freshly made juices and smoothies as well as a great selection of brunch and lunch dishes.

Housed within the Motor House on Skeldergate Bridge, Dyl’s is a unique venue with four different rooms and a gorgeous riverside terrace. The garlicky button mushrooms come highly recommended!

4. Brew and Brownie

Your time in York would not be complete without a trip to the treasured Brew and Brownie. This highly instagrammable cafe doesn’t take reservations, so you may need to queue for a seat- especially on a weekend. However, the wait will be worth it when you’re sat in front of a stack of fluffy pancakes and a cup of artisan coffee.

Price: ££


5. Cosy Club


Cosy Club is a bit of a wildcard addition, but it has a lot of things going for it. It’s in a great location on Fossgate and the art deco decor is nice and quirky. You can also get a full English at a reasonable price and, whilst it may not be an independent cafe, it does serve a ham hock hash with breakfast gravy (!?!!)

Price: ££
