York Cafe / The Habit Cafe Bar York

York Cafe, known as The Habit Cafe Bar, charms visitors with its quaint blue shopfront that beckons you inside. Beyond its inviting exterior lies a rooftop open courtyard where patrons can enjoy their coffee amidst an alfresco oasis. Leather bench seating adds a touch of sophistication, creating a comfortable and stylish setting for coffee connoisseurs to relax and soak in the cafe’s ambiance.

The building The Habit occupies dates back to at least the 16th Century on York’s oldest residential street. The name ‘The Habit’ comes from the fact the building was home to local monks and the artwork inside shows their day to day life (albeit the less obvious side!).  Now run by Simon and Vicki, it was originally an exotic furniture shop until they both quickly identified Goodramgate as a great location for a café and bar. The Habit was founded in 2004 with the aim of becoming a  premier music venue, supplemented with a great range of drinks and honest, yet fantastic food.

Now in 2019, we offer Live Music six days a week, a huge selection of gins, whisky(ies), ales and food. The Habit is proud to be featured in York’s 101 Hidden Gems, a member of Visit York, as well as holding a Certificate Of Excellence on TripAdvisor for three years in a row.
