“Best burger in town”

Lay of the Land Cafe & Coffee Shop
Ranked #3 of 5 Coffee & Tea in Settle
Price range: US$7 - US$21
Description: Lay of the Land cafe is not quite like any other Garden Centre cafe, the Coffee’s great and the food even better. The decor is light, bright and contemporary. We’re lucky enough to have the expertise most don’t, we aim to compete with the best eateries around, not just any run of the mill garden centre cafe. The cafe / coffee shop is run by James. He trained as a Chef at Michelin stared Northcote Manor in Langho, working for their Ribble Valley Inns and The Lion in Settle amongst others before joining the family business in 2015. The cafe combines Jimmies passion for simple, hearty, locally sourced food with high quality coffee’s and teas. Best Coffee in the Yorkshire Dales (We’d like to think). We’ve gone a long way to make sure you have a great experience. All of our cafe staff have undertaken Barista training with Casa Espresso, who provide our artisan coffee roasted in Bradford from small batch producers. We’re pretty confident you would have to go a very long way to find a better coffee. Brew Tea Co provide our fantastic loose leaf teas so tea drinkers won’t be disappointed either. Hearty Grub Jimmie puts together a constantly evolving lunch and breakfast menu, sandwiches, soups, hot and cold meals all made to order. With freshly baked cakes & scones for those with a sweet tooth. Wherever possible Jimmie sources his ingredients from local suppliers, even growing a little bit ourselves (expanding this soon). cheeses come from The Courtyard Dairy, meat from The Blue Pig Company in Long Preston & bread from Seasons Bakery in Ingleton, amongst others.

The food here is brilliant, definitely a hidden gem. I had the pork burger, it was a huge burger for the low price and tasted incredible. Packed with crispy bacon, mature cheese, tasty coleslaw and plum sauce it was one of the best I've had in a long time. A very pleasant surprise for my first trip to the garden centre!

Tucked away on the edge of Settle industrial estate, but well signposted from Bond Lane and Station Road. Obviously operating at reduced capacity and doing take-aways due to COVID-19 restrictions but the food was wholesome and hearty.

Takeaway only during current restrictions but nonetheless choice and imaginative menu, all freshly cooked to order. We had beetroot falafel flatbread and the crispy chicken flatbread. Both tasted lovely - fillings and bread were equally tasty. Seek this place out if you’re in the area. In fine weather - find a bench on the nearby riverside walk.
