Baldersons Welcome Cafe


Situated on Chestnut Avenue in the heart of Thornton le Dale, Balderson’s Welcome Cafe is a family run business since 1895. We can accomodate parties (including coach parties). Scroll down and click on the link below to see our party menu.


We serve a variety of delicious food and snacks all day long. Pop in before noon for a full English breakfast, or enjoy our large range of main meals and lunches served all day. We provide our customers with fresh, local food; all of our meat used in our cooking is locally sourced from Glaves Butchers in Brompton, just a few miles from Thornton le Dale.


Whether you indulge in a fresh cream cake or a hot traditional pasty, you can be assured that all our breads, cakes and pastries which we serve in our Cafe and Bakery are made on the premises, to the traditional family recipes which have been passed down from generation to generation.


You can take home some of these delicious treats from our bakery next door, or why not have a browse in our spacious Gift Shop? We stock a large range of gardenware, homeware, jewellery and Thornton le Dale gifts, which are a perfect present to take home from your visit to this pretty village.


Furthermore, our large, sheltered Tea Garden is open all year long, and dogs are always welcome. Especially enjoyable on a sunny day, there is also a play area for children to enjoy whilst you unwind in the sun. The Garden offers plenty of room for cyclists to leave their bikes outside, whilst they take a break from the various cycling routes around the Thornton le Dale area.


We are open seven days a week, all year round, and hold a five star food hygiene rating. We look forward to seeing you!
