Toby's has a great location beside the towpath so makes for a handy stop for lunch or a snack when out for a walk or bike ride. Food is tasty and reasonably priced and the outdoor table arrangements are good. What took away from our experience was the lack of basic organisation.. Tables left uncleared, tables not cleaned between visits... More

We'd only been walking a short distance and were both desperate for the loo so called in here. The hottest hot chocolate I'd ever had and a huge slab of coconut cake and toasted fruit loaf. The spot caters for dogs too with a great selection of snacks including pigs ears!! If you don't like dogs then you might not... More

This little cafe is in a great location along side the canal. We walked to it from Guiseley through Esholt woods then back again. The outside terrace is very nice, especially in the sunshine! The menu was fairly varied, with a selection of different sandwiches and paninis. It also had a breakfast menu although that finished at 12pm - shame... More

Quite simply the best coffee and brownies in this world. I defy you to find better! Really dog friendly, quirky interior and exterior, great quality products and lovely staff (Karen you are a superstar!). If you haven't already then you need to visit this place.

Delicious home made food and drinks menu served with a really warm welcome. Its not always easy to persuade our teenagers to go for a walk, but this gorgeous little tea room makes a walk down the canal a breeze. Whether you arrive for lunch or afternoon tea, the perfectly selected menu caters for all. Lovely !

We often walk along the canal and this tea room makes the apperley to esholt one of our favourite sections, it's very place and a great place to take dogs. I'm a big fan of the sticky sausage panini too
