Where is your favourite place to go for brunch in North Yorkshire?

Whether you fancy a full English breakfast, a stack of fluffy pancakes, or a steak special, there's plenty of choice in the area.

But one foodie spot in York has been recommended by a top chef as one of the best places for brunch in the UK.

Robinsons Café was praised by Tommy Banks, chef of the Black Swan at Oldstead, in an article published by The Times.

The publisher said: “No long and lazy weekend is complete without brunch. Everything about it is laid-back, from the loose timings (anything from early morning to mid-afternoon) to the eclectic menu. Sweet American-style pancakes? Yes please! Classic full English? Why not?!

“This selection of favourite brunch destinations from some of the UK’s leading chefs includes an Indian-influenced menu in Bath and an Australian-style one in Belfast.

“The settings may vary, from a beachfront café in Margate to a converted shipping container on a Bristol wharf, but what they all have in common is great food, relaxed dining and the perfect space in which to fortify yourself against the week ahead.”

“I go with my wife, Charlotte, most Monday mornings and we both go for their steak and fried eggs, which are served with a delicious steak sauce. That accompanied by a couple of cortados and I’m ready for the week.”

On its website, Robinsons says it was launched “out of our love for great food and efficient, non-intrusive service.”

It adds: “We have used our background in Michelin-starred restaurants to create a place that consistently delivers both.

“Our team’s mission is to create a home for food lovers with a welcoming environment, accessible to all ages. We’re a small neighbourhood restaurant with a big reputation with an exciting all-day Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch offering.”

Many customers were also impressed by their visit to Robinsons as it currently has a rating of 5/5 out of 407 reviews on Tripadvisor.
