Pig and Pastry, York

Pig and Pastry York
Cosmopolitan, charming and highly recommended for its food - Cafe culture at its best.
The Bishopthorpe Road area of York does a great job of creating and enforcing its own identity as a destination shopping area for locals and visitors alike. Although the Bishopthorpe Road shopping area is small it has a number of more traditional individually owned shops rather than the large corporations. A favourite destination for Saturday morning food shopping whilst making sure you take time for a great breakfast at the Pig and Pastry.

Profile Description

This little coffee shop has a strong identity. A visit here will make you feel as though you’re part of a community, even if you are only passing through.

People can often be found queuing outside for a table and when you get your table you will often find you have to share with other people. As such you find yourself talking to the other guests. I love how “Can you pass the sugar please” leads to a cheery conversation. The nice thing about it, is that there is no feeling of being rushed out. You can grab a paper and sit with your coffee for, it would seem, as long as you like. After leaving the cafe we also have found other diners are also browsing the shops and exchanging a cheery word or two during the time outside of the cafe too.

If the weather is good then taking a seat outside is delightful, especially as your dog can join you too.

The cakes, pies and quiches seem to always be different. Not a problem for us as we have bought loads and every one have been delicious.

So is the Pig and Pastry QWerky? A little we think…but due to its place on Bishy Road….then the quirky factor pumps right up.

Go enjoy the Pig and Pastry. Go enjoy all that is Bishy Road. We love Bishy Road.

A delight! Great chocolate meringues and other cakes to tempt even the most focussed dieter...

Ahh, the dear Pig and Pastry! I only wish I lived nearer then I would be there every week. I have only been half a dozen times, but each time was a treat. You know how I feel about this place, it spurred me on to spend over 200 hours drawing this place along with all the rest of this extra-ordinary street. Unique. Great place.

The pig and pastry really didn't live up to the hype... it was ok but sadly nothing more than that. We were disappointed as we hoped for great things but it was really not as good as people say (Said with a heavy heart...)
