Café 68 at York Castle Museum

Café 68 at the Castle Museum

No museum visit is complete without a visit to Café 68 at the Castle! We serve delicious lunches, home-made cakes and our own house blend coffee with a range of options for special dietary requirements.

Our Menu

Our menu is perfect for filling hungry kids and grown-ups. Some of our favourite dishes include:

  • Various light sandwiches
  • Delicious scones freshly baked every morning
  • Fresh hot food specials, served with vegetables or fresh leaf salad
  • Children’s boxes with a selection of yummy treats
  • Gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free/vegan options available daily

Our menu changes regularly so there’s always something new to try.

Our Cafe

We have huge windows looking out onto the Eye of York and Clifford’s Tower – one of York’s most famous views – and on sunny days you can sit outside. It’s a brilliant spot to watch the world go by and recap on your favourite bits of the museum!

We are family-friendly, with comfortable access for pushchairs and free highchairs – please just ask a member of staff. Our popular kids boxes offer a hearty and healthy lunch for little ones, and we cater for special dietary requirements too. Toilets with baby changing facilities are located close to the cafe on the ground floor.

You are also more than welcome to just visit the café without paying admission to the museum, and don’t forget you can receive 10% off our prices with your YMT Card. We also do hot drinks and some food to takeaway.
