Nestled in the heart of Little Germany, Bradford’s vibrant business district is our contemporary Café Bar. Established in 2002, we offer a wide selection of Breakfast & Lunchtime meals that can be eaten inside or taken out, along with our fantastic Outside Catering menu for local businesses and events.

About our Coffee

All the coffee is ethically sourced and freshly ground for each cup to give a smooth, full-bodied coffee. We take both pride and great care over each cup of coffee, and because we’re an independent cafe we can make it to your own individual requirements and tastes.
Our local supplier Coopers Coffee provide regular deliveries of fresh beans from around the globe. We firmly believe that the fresher the beans, the tastier the coffee created, which is why we ensure regular deliveries are made. Our wide choice of traditional coffee’s all grounded by our state of the art bean to cup machine, so whether you want to relax inside with a cappuccino or grab and go with a frothy latte, you can be sure Yo Yo Café has some of the freshest coffee in Bradford.

About the Food

We have a wonderful menu, which includes oven-baked jacket potatoes, freshly cut sandwiches, homemade soups and seasonal salads. Our ingredients are sourced from local suppliers on a daily basis, meaning the meals we produce are as fresh as humanly possible. It’s fair to say that we have become the venue of choice for the office workers of Little Germany, offering guaranteed variety and quality day in day out.

The Team behind Yo Yo Cafe Bar

Having been in the Hospitality industry for 34 years with Major hotels in U.S.A. Dubai, Saudi Arabia & Malaysia Simon Dunn settled in Bradford due to work in the early 90’s, and along with his wife Sarojini went self employed in 1996 with a consultancy company called Catering Solutions which specialised in giving P.R., Marketing & Sales advise to Hoteliers and Restaurateurs as well as compering Celebrity Cooking demonstrations at the N.E.C., Earls Court, The Asian Mela & the Good Food show to name but a few. In 2000 & 2001 they launched the Bradford Food and Drink Festival. In 2002 they identified an opportunity to open a Cafe Bar in Little Germany as this was the business district of bradford and had no such outlet open to eat in. The Cafe Bar is still in the same ownership and offers In House Dining, Collect & Go and Outside catering. In 2006 we had the idea of opening a much larger outlet which offered a mixture of Japanese, Chinese & Thai cuisine. The venue,  a 5,500 square foot building with seating for 200 people also has a bar open to the public as well as a great venue for holding weddings, conferences, parties, exhibitions etc, thus the Yo Yo Bar & Restaurant was opened.

There are no plans to open any further outlets in the future but to continue to offer the very best in hospitality in our existing outlets.
