Why we love it

If you’re looking for a quick breakfast with all the trimmings, then The Hylton Cafe is right up your street. A long-standing establishment in the Jewellery Quarters local food scene, it’s no surprise that this joint has stapled itself as an institution for local, nearby workers and city-breakers alike.

The Hylton Cafe is a fun loving, family affair, run by duo-extraordinaire Paul and Maureen since 2016. It’s a classic breakfast spot, with a welcoming smell of freshly cooked bacon and hot coffee flowing through the space. Ample seating inside and out means there’s room for everyone, whether that’s for an early morning breakfast or a quick lunch pit-stop.

Simplicity is key when it comes to the popularity of the food at The Hylton Cafe. The menu is clearly laid-out, denoting breakfast plates, sandwiches, deli specials, lunch options, jacket potatoes, and salad boxes. Everything’s well-priced and made with local ingredients where possible. Their fried breakfasts (vegetarian options are available) are definitely the most popular order of the day, and for good reasons - a well priced and generous portion of sausage, egg, bacon, baked beans, hash browns, tomatoes and black pudding means The Hylton Cafe’s Full English is everything you want from a fry-up.

There’s no scrimping when it comes to the size of their sandwiches either. Served on thickly and crusty sliced bread of your choice, these put any homemade soggy sandwiches to shame. From York ham with vine ripened tomatoes and rocket, to tuna, mayo and cucumber, there’s a great selection of favourite fillings to choose from.

So next time you’re searching for that hungover breakfast spot, or need to level up you lunch, know that The Hylton Cafe always has your back.

The Tandoori chicken served on thick cut crusty bread is a right warming lunch.
