The Lemon Tree has been a staple cafe stop for cyclists in the surrounding area of Tadcaster for some time. Formerly known as Tykes, the cafe overlooks the John Smith’s brewery on the main road through the town and is certainly a cycling friendly place to enjoy a pot of tea, with plenty of cycle racks at the rear and a basket full of locks just inside the door.
The owners, Neil and Sharon, along with their friendly team, serve up some cracking home cooking, with the chilli and chips a personal favourite of ours. They also have a loyalty card, so after a few visits with your mates you will be earning free drinks to go with your cake.
The cafe is very close to the collapsed bridge in Taddy, but that doesn’t seem to have affected the popularity and reputation of this great little cafe, and so if you are planning a flat ride in the Selby district of North Yorkshire then do call in and give them some support.
