Mama Doreen's Emporium set to launch new restaurant in York

Award-winning independent restaurant, Mama Doreen’s Emporium is set to launch a second restaurant in York.

The business, which launched in 2009, is set to build on its growing popularity and open a second Emporium at Vangarde Shopping Park in York this November.

The new Mama Doreen’s Emporium will be located at the unit previously occupied by Frankie & Benny’s and burger restaurant, The Confessional.

Jessica Wyatt, co-owner of Mama Doreen’s alongside her mother, Justine, said:

“We began making cupcakes for market stalls 12 years ago – we never dreamed that they would prove to be so popular that we’d be opening up a second restaurant.

"We are proud to be an independent, family-run Yorkshire business and we can’t wait for visitors to Vangarde to try our tasty treats!”

Like its Harrogate counterpart, the new Emporium will continue to create its beautiful array of afternoon teas, cupcakes, sweet treats and celebration cakes at a bespoke on-site bakery.

A visit to the Emporium is perfect for all occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers and hen parties.

Jess added:

"Not only will we be offering brunch, lunch and our famous afternoon teas everyday, we’ll have fresh, seasonal variations, including our popular Winter Wonderland afternoon tea, which will be available from November through to the end of December - it’s the perfect Christmas treat for all ages.”

Ahead of its launch, Mama Doreen’s Emporium York is recruiting for a number of part-time and full-time roles for both front and back of house.

Louise Pilcher, assistant manager at Harrogate, said:

“I’ve worked for Mama Doreen’s for two years and it’s by far the happiest team I’ve worked in. There’s always a brilliant, magical atmosphere and I love seeing happy smiley faces.

"We don’t work evenings, which is pretty rare in hospitality, so it means I have a much better work-life balance, too.”

For job enquiries, email enquiries@mamadoreens.co.uk.

For afternoon tea, cakes and cupcakes, visit the Mama Doreen’s Emporium website and keep an eye on their social media for updates on the new restaurant in the coming weeks.
