Coffee from a horse box? It's a thing! The Dark Horse Espresso Bar, in Shambles Market, is one of our top recommendations for a family-friendly coffee stop in York. It's an independent, family-run, outdoor coffee shop that serves exceptional coffee, and there's a healthy brunch, lunch and homemade treat menu too. Grab a delicious Allpress coffee to go or sit and relax in the small outdoor seating area. There's a tempting selection of Anzac biscuits, banana bread and toasties if you're feeling peckish, and kids' options too. It's a relaxing place to stop and refuel, and you're supporting a local business too.
