Most places in Knaresborough are distressingly tea-roomy, as is the case in much of North Yorkshire.
McQueen’s is a “wannabe” coffee house, with “ESPRESSO” and “CAPPUCCINO” written in big print on the windows, but the piles of scones gives it away.
Nevertheless, it’s still an good place to sit with a coffee, especially if you’re swift enough to bag the sofas by the window. The coffee is nothing special but the interior is pleasant, it’s very friendly and there are newspapers to read.
It’s just about enough of a coffee house to be part of this blog.
