Address: 1A Clarence St, York YO31 7EL

Cafe St John is a relatively new caff, bless. Situated right next to the coach park off Gillygate, it greets the Foreigns with a well-oiled welcome as they stream off the bus.

Run by a lovely couple, this has to be the warmest caff I think I've ever been to. Whilst working out my bill on one occasion, the lady took a head-rest on the gent's lapel. I prescribe more cuddles for everyone to get us through the day!

I've been in on a number of occasions in my cycling attire. I get a few odd glances from the workers, but they just assume it's some new style, slim-fit hi-viz and turn back 'round.

So as not to trespass off menu, I order omelette, chips and beans. Now whether I say 'with' or 'and' beans, I always get the beans INSIDE my omelette [pictured - ignore the salad...]! And once you've had it that way, there's no going back, I tell you.

Look out for: free-range-egg window display feature and... eggy bread on the menu! Fabbo.

caffs.co.uk wishes Cafe St John all the very best.

* STOP PRESS *

Just before this addition went to press, Cafe St John has now become Fish Inn - a fish and chip shop! Sniff.
