Bar Manager – Stratford Upon Avon

After the roaring success of our cafe Stratford High Street over the last 18 months, we're now very excited and delighted to be backflip-diving in with all our feet and arms and everything, into our second home in Stratford, and we'd love you to be a part of it.

We’ve been rolling with the wild winds in the breakfast crowd since 2012, building the blocks for what feels like centuries. Have a snoop round some other places you’ll see a few of our classics being beautifully referenced. That’s a badge of honour of influence like we have worn our influences too.

Don't let the word "Cafe" put you off. We're seriously passionate about the food we serve and as a result, have been hailed by critics and the media as one of the best brunch destinations in the country. We've spent 9 years building our team and reputation for incredible own-roasted coffee, bakery, brunch and of course being the best part of people's day. The last 18 months have prompted a re-think for many of us; we aim for our legacy to be measured not by financial success, but by the positive impact we leave behind and impact we've had on others. We aim to make positive local change for global good.



Have a look at our instagram for a quick insight into what we do @yorkscafe. We were also recently featured on Topjaw (@topjaw) when they visited Birmingham - well worth checking out. We have cafes in Birmingham and Stratford Upon Avon and have some very exciting plans over the coming year.
