Address: 49 Crichton Avenue, Clifton, York YO30 6EF
More an essential community service than a caff, Crichton Avenue Cafe oils a wide catchment from its prime position in the centre of Clifton. Wall-mount TV set to JK, notice-board of events and Argos catalogue to dream of plasma screens whilst you tuck in. At 1:30 there's usually an invasion by the Canon Lee kids who come, exchange a pound for a cone of chips and flick 45 degree V signs at Jamie Oliver in the process.
Don't ignore the signs - a Comic Sans triptych calling customers for all-day breakfasts from the 4 corners of Clifton. Bless you Crichton Avenue Cafe!
