5 Silver Street, The Shambles Market, YORK, North Yorkshire, YO1 8RY
The Dark Horse Espresso


Whether you are looking for a quick bite on the go, or would prefer to take in the bustling Shambles Market, our unique horsebox provides an eye catching alternative place to stop by.

From living in Sydney for over a decade, we have brought back to York an admiration of the Australian way of life and food culture.  York born and bred we aim to bring to our fellow locals and tourists to the city a new taste experience through both our quality coffee and Australian inspired menu.

We use the best quality local suppliers for our menu which consists of a range of homemade breakfast items, snacks and lunches, alongside our Allpress coffee.  We have a delicious gourmet toastie menu catering to plenty of dietry requirements including Vegan and Gluten free options.

We love bringing our coffee and wholesome food to the streets of York and look forward to sharing it with you all!
