This weekend it was time to celebrate coming to the end of two weeks that will determine nothing shy of a 3rd of my degree.

How do two students celebrate such a momentus occasion? There is only one obvious answer to this - a decadent brunch in one of York's many cafes. So my trusted brunch companion and I headed out to Robinson's cafe on Bishopthorpe Road. It seems only natural to test out the place that shares my name.

On arrival we found that the place was packed and we had to wait a good 20 minutes before being seated. BUT the staff were lovely and made sure we had menus to browse whilst we were waiting.

My exam-induced exhaustion has led to my recent discovery of the beauty of coffee. Excited to test out the Robinson's offering, I ordered a latte. It was DELICIOUS. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm still slightly scared of drinking too much coffee, I would have ordered another.

To eat, I ordered the Chorizo and Parma Ham Hash with Sundried Tomatoes and Poached Egg. I did not regret it. The delicious, saucy mix of so many beautiful flavours comes with 2 huge slices of sourdough to soak up all the tomatoey goodness.

Never fear vegetarians, the menu also has a great number of options for you. My friend's choice was the creamy truffle mushrooms & poached egg on toasted sourdough. It was very well received.

Overall, I'd rate my Robinson's experience as 10/10. The variety on offer makes it almost too hard to choose, the food comes quick and is extremely tasty, the coffee is great and the staff are wonderfully friendly. Would definitely go again.

Only advice is, given that the place is so popular, maybe head over during the week to avoid the rush.
