Partisan is a beautiful, independent family-run cafe on Micklegate serving delicious locally-sourced food and good coffee. The interiors are warm, inviting and homely, and staff are friendly too. Much of what’s on display is for sale: don’t be surprised if you go in for lunch and walk out with a mirror and a bunch of local wild flowers. The brunch menu is really popular, with French toast, all sorts of eggs, shakshuka and full English all extremely tempting options. Children will no doubt enjoy any of the cakes and pastries on offer, but there’s a couple of kids’ options (think tasty toasties). It’s housed in a quirky building so it can be a bit of an obstacle course with a buggy, but it’s worth the effort. Partisan is a popular spot, so be prepared to queue during peak times.
