Now that we can enjoy indoor hospitality, we're delighted to welcome a new addition to the town centre: Kinzo Coffee Bar & Lounge!

Located on Douglas Street, Kinzo are open every day from 8am to 6pm and serve a range of delicious dishes for breakfast and lunch, including homemade sandwiches, wraps, pasta, soups, jacket potatoes and even afternoon tea.

Their coffee is roasted right here in Yorkshire and goes perfectly with a slice of cake which you can enjoy in one of the comfy armchairs while you admire the quirky decor.
