Spring Espresso (Fossgate)
45 Fossgate, York YO1 9TF, UK
Spring Espresso on Fossgate is the sister site of the original café, based a short walk away on Lendal, close to the Yorkshire Museum and the River Ouse. Both cafés are very popular in York, but the Fossgate café is notably smaller and more intimate than Lendal, with a real cosy café vibe on one of York's most famous Roman streets.
Despite it's location in the heart of touristic York city centre, it gives off the firm impression of being a community venue, with people constantly popping in for a quick chat with staff and regular customers.
Even though it is somewhat smaller than other coffee spots in the city, it makes up for it with personality and intelligent use of its interior space, making it a real haven for coffee lovers.
The coffee offering matches the main site, to deliver a level of product consistency, but they do alter their more menu more regularly to adapt to seasonal produce.
