The Waterfront Cafe at York Marina is a beautiful setting to sit and watch the world go by. We are situated right on the riverbank, overlooking the River Ouse, where you can relax and enjoy the wonderful view as boats pass by up and down the river.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with us (or simply indulge in a coffee and cake) you can be rest assured of friendly, professional and warm service.

Our newly refurbished – fully licensed cafe/bar serves up everything, from great tasting ground coffees, to ice cold beer, wine and cocktails. Our seasonal menus offer something for everyone from classic dishes, to contemporary trends, which are always created using freshly prepared, wholesome food that is locally sourced. We also have a great selection of tasty cakes and treats.

Our river frontage has plenty of sociable seating on the grassy riverbank, which is great for enjoying the sun with a top-notch view. For those cooler days we have a newly refurbished inside area with comfortable seating and a roaring log fire.

We’ve recently added amazing bi-fold doors on the river front so, you can enjoy the amazing view from the comfort of the warm interior.
