YORK TEA & CAKE GUIDE: Mannion & Co.



Sorry this tea and cake guide hasn't quite been a weekly occurence, I've had exams, and waking up at 7:30am (which is early for a student!) every morning, and then working all day in the library hasn't exactly been fun, or left me much time to do anything else, let alone blog. But, without further ado, here is round two of my "York Tea and Cake Guide".

I have a bit of a confession to make here, I didn't actually have any of the cake, it was lunch time, and I was looking for something a bit more substantial to fill my ever rumbling tummy. That having been said, I did have the standard hot chocolate, which came with little marshmallows on the side, perfect for dropping in my hot chocolate (or throwing them at the boyfriend...). The hot choocolate was delicious and plentiful, coming in a tall glass frothy and sprinkled with cocoa. The food here is amazing, coming on rustic pottery plates and almost always coming with a little glass jar of chutney. The cakes look amazing too, and  I have often seen them served on a big wooden platter as part of Mannion's afternoon tea and cake special, which next time I go back I am definitely trying!

Mannion is the perfect little place for a lunch time date, family get together, or lunch with friends. With mismatch table and chairs, sloping walls and creaking wooden floorboards in the little room upstairs, Mannion really is a unique and special place, and a must visit if you're ever in York!
