Slingsby’s has become an accomplished independently owned Cafe, it served its time as a newcomer and has now grown into a venue to visit at any time of day.  Monday to Saturday we open at 7:30 am – serving breakfasts all day such as a fully cooked breakfast, eggs Benedict, poached eggs on avocado and one of our most popular dishes poached eggs on smashed avocado with vine tomatoes, chilli flakes and chives.  From 11:00 am lunch includes some classic dishes such as Lasagne and pasta dishes, panini’s, jacket potato with a range of fillings including a vegetable chilli suitable for Vegans. Sundays have a very relaxed feel with gentle Jazz background music, sitting on the leather sofa reading the Times over Eggs Benedict is how things are done here.

Our Coffee

Coffee The Bean & The Machine

Slingsbys has served its time being a new Coffee House and it now has one of the finest reputations in Harrogate for its consistently great coffee with roasted artisan flavours. The quality of the coffee flavour is about 2 things: the bean and the machine. Slingsby’s have both. Our flavour is unique to us, its slightly sweet, smooth and full-flavoured which begins with a sweet and smooth taste before moving on to zesty citrus and dark cocoa notes, ending with a lingering overall roasted smooth flavour.

The coffee is sourced locally from York Coffee Emporium and is roasted specially for us at an artisan roastery in nearby Poppleton. We ensure that our coffee is ethically sourced from green buyers committed to excellent quality standards and paying their farmers a fair price.

Speciality Teas

Our speciality loose-leaf teas are selected from among the best estates in the world. Sourced from York Coffee Emporium, we try to ensure that the majority carry Fair Trade or Ethical Tea Partnership accreditations. If you’re looking to start your day with a kick, we’d suggest our punchy Breakfast Tea – a blend of Chinese, Kenyan and Indian leaves for a full-bodied cup to get you up and running.


Slingsby’s offers a wide selection of breakfasts, lunches and light snacks incorporating a variety of cuisines and dietary needs. Start your day the right way with a Slingsby’s Breakfast. From Full English and Vegetarian breakfasts to Poached Eggs with Avocado there’s a cooked option for however you are feeling (hungover or not!). American Pancakes served with Maple Syrup and Bacon are the perfect treat for a lazy weekend or weekday. Or if you’re in a rush, grab a takeaway drink and a Bacon or Sausage Bap. By only using the best quality ingredients we’re able to make such a simple snack one of our absolute best sellers. We also offer discounts for takeaway meals

Lunch time offers some fuller meals such as Homemade Lasagne & Salad, freshly cooked pasta dishes, seasonal paninis such as Roast Turkey with Homemade Stuffing and Cranberry sauce or the more fun panini with giant Hot Dog, Onions, mustard and Ketchup.

Choose from a range of freshly made Sandwiches, paninis, Baked Potatoes, Soups and Daily Specials. All our sandwiches, paninis and toasties are made to order and come served with a salad garnish and Homemade Ruby Slaw and can be eaten in or taken out. We offer a range of fillings

Our Homemade Soup of the Day is served with locally baked bread and butter, and for just a bit extra you can add half a sandwich. With Meal Deal’s and a Children’s Menu to choose from we’re certain that there will be something to suit every taste and budget.

Sunday’s are relaxing with the full menu being served from 8am until 2pm, great coffee, Sunday papers, friendly and helpful staff who care about our customers.

The Harrogate Wedding Lounge & The Bridal Collection 

“Andrew and the team at Slingsby’s recently catered an event we were holding for our clients and colleagues in our Harrogate boutique. 

From the very start Andrew was a pleasure to deal with. He listened to our ideas and made lots of great suggestions based on seasonality and presentation space. Communication on the run up to the event was great and on the day itself Andrews organisation was fabulous. The food was wonderfully tasty and beautifully presented and we were lucky enough to have Andrew on the evening to help us host.

The complements we received on the food were many and Andrews help, charm and willingness to go above and beyond made it a fabulous event. I couldn’t recommend the team at Slingsby’s enough the value for money and service we received will mean we would use them in a heartbeat for future events

Andrew provided catering for us in September 2018 for a business event. We opted for a selection of canapés from Andrew’s carefully picked bespoke menu.

The food was beautifully presented, tasted incredible and worked perfectly in our luxury environment. 

Andrew’s organisation was second to none, you can tell a lot of thought goes into every aspect of his catering. 

Thank you for helping us to create a successful evening which delighted our customers.

We have been ordering our corporate lunches from Slingsby’s for several months and we have received many favourable comments from our clients, visitors and staff. The food is delicious, and we especially liked the hot turkey and home-made stuffing sandwiches during the Christmas period and the soup and hot beef sandwiches during the winter months. Andrew’s offer of food for our lunches is always a treat, they are freshly prepared and always delivered on time

We prefer to use a local company wherever possible and we have found the staff at Slingsby’s to be friendly, helpful and very efficient.

“Slingsby’s catered lunch for our monthly sales meeting, and the standard was excellent!  We were given various options at the very outset, and the lunch that arrived did not disappoint – a superb selection with plenty to go around.  I would certainly recommend Slingsby’s to any business looking to cater a meeting or event and we will certainly be using them again.”
