Julie Mountain took over a cosy, cellar based restaurant and transformed it into one of the most talked about eateries in Ilkley! With a friendly welcome, honest service and a rustic dining experience.
During the day, Café J offers a tasty daytime menu in our rustic style cellar bar, with all the charm of a french styled cafe bistro. Whether you fancy a light nibble or a warming hearty soup, Café J offers something to tickle everyone’s taste buds.
Themed nights at Cafe J you can really sink your teeth into. Once a month, we open our doors to the evening air and welcome our guests to sit, relax and enjoy a themed inspired night including a 3 course meal and live music.
The perfect setting for your special event. Café J is able to cater for private functions, be it a small group requiring an intimate meal or wedding party wanting a rustic ambient setting, no matter your taste, style or budget we can cater for you.

Down in Ilkley on holiday and found this lovely place. Great staff who were happy to chat. Stands out by being that bit different.
Superb breakfast – lovely runny poached egg cooked to perfection
Super delicious cake and coffee, beautiful coffee cups and sugar jar and amazingly friendly staff! My new favourite place! Love it.
