What people say about us on Tripadvisor:

Don’t miss this cafe

I’ve travelled through Wakefield quite a lot in the last 12 months but unfortunately my connection has only given me a few minutes at the station - just long enough to get one of the best coffees around always served by really friendly people. This place makes the ordinary just a bit special and many others could learn from their model. I hope my journey takes me through Wakefield again soon!

Fantastic quality and tasty!

Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is so tasty and such good quality - even down to the small paper bags when you take your food away. The hot beverages are to die for and they accommodate all allergens and diets. Couldn’t ask for a better cafe. Exceptionally priced for a train station cafe
