The Balloon Tree Cafe York

Saturday just gone, Bob & I decided to go for a bit of a country walk and venture down to the local farm shop and cafe: The Balloon Tree. We absolutely love the local area as it feels like you are right in the countryside but a mere 15-20mins from York. Here is one of the snaps I took on our lovely walk.


The weather was crisp and cold and we trundled off to the Balloon tree with food firmly on the brain. The Balloon Tree is a farm shop and cafe selling a lot of local produce as well as food straight from butchers and farms. The attached cafe was open so we thought why not try out some of the food.


We timed it well and got seated straight away before ordering a coca-cola for Bob and a hot chocolate with all the trimmings for Moi. (See Below)


The menu is packed with amazing choices and as we were already hungry we took a while to decide what to have. Bob chose the Homemade Yorkshire rarebit and I chose a Home honey-roasted ham, tomato and smoked Applewood Cheddar Toastie. .

The meals were gorgeous and the service was super quick despite the cafe filling up quickly and more people ordering at the same time. The staff were attentive and checked how it was and whether we needed more drinks.

I had never ventured to the Balloon Tree before but as it’s only a stones throw from our new house, I thought it was about time. They also have fruit picking in the summer where you can fill a basket as well as animals on site including pigs, hens, chickens and 2 kids.

If you are venturing over to East Yorkshire on your way to the coast then I thoroughly recommend stopping off here for a bite to eat. It’s so worth it.
