Filmore & Union.

No comments:
York has so many beautiful little tea spots. Amongst the cobbled streets and within the city walls around every corner you find a a great little cafe or restaurant all in the shadow of the York Minster, the huge and mesmerising cathedral that towers over the city This morning I went to Filmore & Union. Yorks answer to the organic rustic/health juicing craze hitting the UK. They have a great menu. everything organic and great breads with amazing flavours like pumpkin and thyme or lavender and spelt. all alongside an elaborate remedy juice menu with an option of health shots.

You walk in and are hit with smells of fresh baking and fruit and brownies piled on the counter. if you head upstairs you are then in the little restaurant. They do breakfast lunch and dinner. Dinner is especially nice as the restaurant is small and very romantic so great for a date.
In summer they fling the windows open so the whole place is delightfully fresh and comes alive into the evening.

Today I only had time for a tea, fresh mint leaves and honey, which was delicious with copious amounts of honey.

The most gorgeous little table decorations, with the weather warming up it feels like spring is finally in the air. 

This is their pistachio cake - literally divine and all ingredients organic so you can attempt to kid yourself that you can eat as much as you like!

These are their healthy breakfast muffins. Again everything sourced fresh and they smell delicious as they are being baked in the morning. 

The staircase is a bit dingy and dark but lit by these lanterns, giving it a middle eastern feel. 

A huge bowl of fresh organic free range eggs - I was tempted by the eggs and soldiers, but had already eaten so will have to save it for another visit!

I really recommend it as a cafe and restaurant for anytime of day, light, fresh and great food!
