Another hidden gem on Gillygate, Café 68 is worth the short stroll from the city walls for its selection of cakes, hot drinks and light meals. Buggy drivers will need to negotiate a few steps to get in, but once you’re through the door this is a family-friendly place. The fact it’s packed with babies in highchairs tells you all you need to know. There’s also a small garden if the weather’s good or your children are in particularly shouty mood. The kids’ menu is usually a hit and dads tend to enjoy the full English breakfast. You’ll also find Cafe 68 at York Castle Museum and Cycle Heaven, one of York’s best independent bike shops.
Best for – A relaxed brunch with family or friends.
