    Falstone cafe

    Try Falstone cafe about 5 miles south of the Keilder visitor centre, the village is marked from the main road.
    Much better value than the visitor centre.

    Sorry don't do the GPS thingy.

    Cafe in the layby just outside of Caton on the A683 heading towards Kirby Lonsdale. The best bacon butties around and much cheaper than Devil's bridge

    Penny Garth Cafe - Hawes, busy on Sundays, fair amount of trail riders aswell as people going to Devil's Bridge.
    Whistlestop cafe - Whitby, busy on a thursday night during the summer months.
    Hartside Cafe - Summit of Hartside Pass, busy sundays, but a cracking view on a good day.
    The Old Police station cafe - Helmsley, again busy on a sunday.

    Not on a particulary nice road but Excelbys truck stop between the Tontine and Yarm exits on the southbound carriageway of the A19 does an awesome breakfast. Dare I say it, it beats Hartside caf's

    Try Wear Valley Diner between Toft Hill and Witton Le Wear on A 68.
    They keep standard business hours but the view over the Wear valley and the trad Brit. grub makes up for it. You can see your bike in the car park if you worry about that kind of thing. Free newspapers if you want to depress your self.

    If I'm down to the Yorkshire Dales, a good lunch spot is The Pen-y-ghent Cafe, Horton in Ribblesdale - it's a walkers cafe but they do great food and a crackin' pint of tea.

    If heading north on the A68 past Otterburn. There's a cafe on the right hand side of the road in Rochester. Excellent food & good prices. Alot better than the one at the filling station 3 miles on on the left in Byrness.

    Best Yorkshire Fish and Chips is definately the takeaway chippy at Wetwang on the A166 Road between York and Driffield huge portions and reasonably priced. I should also add I work in Whitby so that Chippy has been pitted against serious competition!!

    On the same road is Seaways Cafe at a village called Fridaythorpe, nice grub if a bit pricey for what is in effect a greasy spoon.

    Also has any one mentioned or does everybody already know Squires at Sherburn in Elmet located on the road which leads from the village to the A1 humongous bike meeting spot with literally hundreds on a sunny day.
