Description: Bliss Cafe is situated a short walk from the Market Square heading towards Millgate car park and public conveniences. We are dog and child friendly and offer a warm welcome, table service and serve fresh local produce to order. We supply take out drinks and food and deliver lunches to our local business community. We are Allergen aware and offer a plethora of Gluten Free food including cakes. Also a range of Yorvale ice cream and sorbet. We always have a dairy free cake on offer as well. Our door is wide enough for wheelchair access but sadly we have two small steps up to our loo. We are happy to help you up and down the steps though...... Our wheelchair customers are able to ride straight up to a table and any special requests are met with a smile. Breakfast and lunch is served all day and if you can't manage a cake we do pretty beribboned boxes for you to take home some goodies. A small range of gifts is now available and Bliss has been completely refurbished in January 2016 to maintain our high standards for your comfort. We hope to see you soon

A dog friendly cafe in Thirsk, have been here three, four time and I must say without a dog even though I’m a dog lover. I honestly can say this is one of the happiest, delightful
Cafes I’ve visited. Yes there are dogs in the Cafe so what. However what what makes this place special is the owner and her staff THEY are always so happy and even when they are busy have always time to chat and make you feel special. Such a beautiful place for a sandwich and a coffee. Visit Now

A fantastic experience. The breakfast was made of quality ingredients and the scones were amazing. One of us had a gluten free scone which he said was better than the very good one he had at Fortnum & Mason’s as part of their afternoon tea.

Highly recommended!

Pleasant enough cafe furnishings and a warm welcome from the waitress. We chose to take a quick lunch break here because of other reviews and the claim that all food was freshly cooked and sourced locally. The sullen cook served us lasagne that had either been microwaved to death or dried out in an oven resulting in a top layer of pasta that couldn't even be cut with a knife, let alone chewed and digested. The steak pie looked suspiciously "machine made" and bore a similarity to those sold in the Co-Op a few yards away, I guess that qualifies as "locally sourced" ! The mashed potato was lumpy and the carrots seemingly badly drained as the plate was swimming in water and gravy. Grossly overpriced and poor quality.

Hello Delboy, this is my second response and in common with the first penned I am sorry you were disappointed at Bliss. Had you spoken to your lovely waitress I am sure we could have satisfied your complaints. Explaining the steak pie comes from Hudson butchers across the road for example. Our cook Anne will read your review and adapt her cooking skills accordingly

We have enjoyed reading your other reviews. I am saddened that you find little to please and gladden your heart be you at Buckingham Palace or the Blackpool ballroom. Perhaps therein lies our obfuscation?

Kind regards

We recently called into the cafe on our family holiday after being told that it was dog friendly and we weren't disappointed. Our dog Luna was greeted immediately with some treats and her own little bowl of sausages and a bowl of water too. Fabulous! We ordered coffees soft drinks and a milkshake and then decided on cheese cake a slice of lemon cake and a huge homemade scone which were all delicious. The staff were very friendly and attentive and chatted to our children making them feel welcome too.
We will definitely return when we are in the area again.

My wife and i popped in here with our two children while on holiday in Yorkshire. We had a very friendly welcome, and it was the owner of the cafe who took our order. She came and sat at our table, and was superb with the children, chatting with them and explaining the different options. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was fabulous and the children were treated to a little extra squirty cream in their hot chocolate once they had finished the first lot. My only regret is not finding the time to visit again during our holiday. We have already planned another holiday in Yorkshire next summer, and Bliss is on the top of the list for places to visit.
