If you follow me on instagram here, you will know that this week I went to check out newly opened Busk.

It was a beautiful day in York which made a nice change to the rainy weather England has had of recent. Anyway, as Busk is situated in Fulford and I was in the central part of the city, the walk took me all of about 5-10 minutes from Fenwicks – not far at all for a good caffeine fix.

Now I am no interior designer, but I do appreciate design and it’s something I love exploring in my spare time. Busk is everything I want my own coffee shop to be like, a strong rich blue complemented by gold signage makes it stand out for all the right reasons. The inside is completed with drop down light bulbs at the window, that gives a warm, snug feeling, while using black light fixtures in the central space complemented by wood panelling as a counterpoint, all brought together by using a mirror style board to display the coffee and food menu.

The coffee used is by roost roastery, located in Malton, so local produce is always a win! It tasted great, full of flavour and went down super easy. I cannot comment on the food offering, which compromises oats, sandwiches, salads etc you get the idea but the cakes were fab, and there was A LOT to choose from; definitely an option for everyone.


Their plans for expansion are really exciting but that’s not for me to inform you about, so get there yourself and hear all about it!!
