Clark’s Cafe, 195 Long Street, Easingwold, Yorkshire, YO6 3JB Tel No 01347 821285. This shop started back in 1925 when the Clark’s grandmother-in-law used to make scones and tea and sell it from the kitchen window to road repair men and cyclists.
You can see from the displays of canal-wares around the room that the owners enjoy narrow boats.
There is also a pretty garden with outside seating for the good weather months.
Everything is made on the premises with the speciality being the all day breakfast, ploughman’s lunch and the set afternoon or cream tea. This comes with a selection of sandwiches, scones with cream and cakes and pastries. http://www.clarksbakers.co.uk/history.html
