Cardamom & Dill
For a city best known for its timber-framed medieval houses and gothic cathedral, Spark:York could not be more different. Created from old shipping containers, it’s a collection of units decked out in every sort of style.
One of the best is Cardamom & Dill, where visitors can enjoy proper coffee and exotic vegetarian and vegan lunches, cooked and served by Kiki Burton.
Kiki is a self-confessed global gourmand who wants to share her passion for international flavours. Her menus are themed and change often. Mediterranean tasting plates are offered for lunches Wednesday to Saturday (and during Sunday brunch), alongside pop-ups with guest chefs, plus private catering.
Cardamom & Dill also puts on exclusive candle-lit supper clubs for just a few guests.
This is the perfect place to visit to remind you of delicious summer holiday flavours all year round. And the website has all the recipes to try yourself at home (the Instagram page has the most wonderful appetising photos, too).
