Welcome to

Hilda & Jane’s


We’ve built our business on our passion for baking and we’re constantly innovating and trying new things. We source only the finest ingredients, we use local free range eggs, fine Belgian chocolate and we also offer vegan and gluten free options.



We are proud to serve a high quality Italian roasted coffee blend sourced from an independent coffee roaster in Italy. Offering a smooth blend with depth of flavour which we’re confident you’ll love almost as much as our cakes!


Whether you’re wanting a hearty English Breakfast or perhaps something lighter like fresh avocado on sourdough toast topped with smoked salmon, then our menu will have something that will surely set you up for the day.


If you’re looking for a delicious artisan sandwich or you’re more a fan of the classics, then there’s something for all tastes on our ever changing sandwich menu. We like to experiment with our sandwiches as much as we do our cakes, so drop in and see what is on today’s menu boards.

Why choose Hilda and Jane's?

An Independent Baker

We are an independent baker based in the beautiful city of York. We offer a wide variety of baked goods, including delicious indulgent brownies, gluten free Tunisian orange cake and not forgetting our famous classic, Hilda’s secret recipe lemon drizzle cake.

Dietary Requirements

We haven’t forgotten those who suffer with allergies and intolerances, we also offer scrumptious options for you too. Having a young member of the family who has lots of allergies we put just as much thought and effort into our “free-from” options. After all, everyone deserves cake!

Brownies are the best I’ve ever tasted ! They are so gooey, smooth but firm. I could highly recommend the raspberry, chocolate orange, triple choc and caramel!!
