The Pig and Pastry

What could be more welcoming on a grey October morning, than the Pig and Pastry on Bishopthorpe Road? This is the local cafe I mentioned in a previous post - where I met with friends on Friday morning. As well as a cafe, it's also a deli, and there's a lovely warm, friendly atmosphere. It isn't in the centre of York, but isn't too far from it either - and I'm lucky enough to live just round the corner. I think this could well become a regular haunt :-)

I took these photos this morning. I need to investigate the range of cakes and pastries they do further next time I go in. The pastries being put on display, fresh from the oven, looked sooo tempting. The Pig and Pastry is relatively new on the Bishopthorpe Rd parade of shops, but is already extrememly popular!

I love the name, so cute! That alone would make me go on inside. And the pasty chef looks very friendly. Yes, I think you should make this one of your regular haunts!

As I'm on a diet I'm very glad there isn't a Pig and Pastry just around the corner from me!

Hi tr3nta, thanks for visiting - it is indeed a great place!

AMA - I can tell you that it is defintitely your kind place - although I don't know if they have wi-fi!

Gerald, yes - when I hear people say it fast it sounds like Pig in Pastry, which is quite an image!
