Serving a unique blend of freshly prepared food and great coffee

Sketch at York Art Gallery is the latest venture by Maria Rodriguez and Philip Veal who established Origin in 2017 to rave reviews.

Cafe open 10:30am-3:30pm Wednesday-Sunday

Serving a unique blend of freshly prepared food and great coffee, Sketch café gives you the perfect start or end to your visit. All produce is seasonal, sourced locally and prepared fresh on the day.

Our outdoor seating area (on the nicer days) overlooks the beautiful fountain to the front of the Gallery on Exhibition Square. Glance up to see York Theatre Royal, Petergate and the adjoining City Walls, and, of course, the magnificent York Minster.

For the duration of the National Treasures: Monet in York exhibition we have also opened an open air bar on the balcony overlooking our wildflower meadow at the back of the Art Gallery. The  bar serves wines and cheese platters.

Bar open 12.30 pm – 4.30 pm Wednesday-Sunday, weather permitting.
