According to their Facebook Page TCs is the French way to eat in Beverley, and this cafe reviewer has been frequenting this exceptional cafe for many a long year. The food offer is exceptional and on many occasions as good as Michelin starred restaurants.
The quality of the coffee at TCs is very good, there are Cafetieres of French Roast coffee and a barista machine for cappuccinos and lattes. The quality of the cappuccinos is consistent with the correct ratio of textured milk to coffee. The coffee is served the French way in small cups, rather than the terrible, huge mugs or two handled “soup bowls” of some of the high street chains.
We had a delicious Chicken and Bacon warm salad, which was served with a slice of home made bread, baked fresh that morning. It is this attention to detail that sets TC’s apart from other cafes. Indeed this is more of a small bistro restaurant than a cafe. The specials on the day of our visit included a smoked duck salad. The menu offers a Scandanavian breakfast with fresh asparagus, Croque Monsieur and Croque Madamme and other French inspired dishes.
We finished our meal with a visit to the Patisserie counter where an incredible range of patisserie, which would not look out of place in Paris was on offer, Raspberry Bavoir , strawberry tarts, and a beautiful fruit tart, piled high with colourful fruit under a simple glaze.
The desserts are served on a decorated plate, and are as good as you will find in London or Paris. Superb.
The quality of food at TCs is truly exceptional “I don’t know, I just do my job to the best of my ability and cook the food I like to eat” explains Thierry Conduit the chef owner of TC’s
The ambience of TC’s is bright and clean, there are images from France on the walls, and of course the display of patisserie items. TC’s is a small cafe with a limited number of tables and so it does get very busy over lunchtime, however seating is not usually a problem for a croissant (freshly made that morning) and coffee in the morning or an afternoon tea.
24.5/30 Peasant Food Rating – A truly exceptional cafe, with an outstanding food offer.
