Lunch@Toast House, Ilkley

Sometimes you can just stumble across a great place…we are in Toast House in Ilkley. We were looking for somewhere for a light lunch and this place is both very relaxed and very friendly.

The menu is interesting too. The emphasis appears to be on fresh, often local ingredients. As you might expect from the name, there are many dishes involving different types of toasted bread, plus there are home-made cakes and great coffee. My latte macchiato is sublime.


Rock decides to have brunch…..home-made granola served with yoghurt, honey and a rich, vibrant cherry compote. She is really enjoying it. I am unable to resist trying the toast – I have toasted sourdough with vintage cheddar, apple chutney and rocket. The chutney works fantastically well with the cheese and, of course, the toast is great!

I just have enough room for cake but, easily distracted, I see the interesting Northern Bloc ice cream flavours and ask for a recommendation…..“Try the black treacle”. I do, like everything else here, it is beautiful.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
