Fresh, light and airy, Pasaz is putting some zing back into Hull’s foundering cafe culture.

The Venue
In its former life, Pasaz was a tapas bar which was damaged by the terrible floods that affected Hull.

With its owner deciding to ship out, it's been taken over by former freelance chef Paul Jones and his partner. And since then it’s been given a new lease of life, and the floods are a distant memory.

It’s kitted out in a modern style with lots of creams and browns, and the bar front is covered in padded brown leather while enticing-looking cakes beckon you from behind the glass counter.

There’s a central pillar with metal strips around it, angled brass spotlights beam light from the ceiling and modern art adds colour to the walls.

Small vases of flowers sit pretty on the tables, and upstairs there's another modern, light and airy space decorated with big ceramic urns, hessian sacks and big potted plants. There’s a real wood floor and marble-effect tables.

The People
The clientele is still being established but, apart from friends of the owners (of which there are quite a few), it includes an eclectic mix of old and young while pricing out the young estate mums.

The Food and Drink
The menu is still in evolution and is being tweaked, but it includes all the cafe standbys. A bacon buttie is £3.50 and comes with a couple of rashers of crispy bacon in a soft bap.

Homemade fishcakes with chilli dressing are £3.50 and bruschettas are £3.25. It’s £6.50 for a beefburger and chips and for a more healthy option, a goats cheese panini is £4.95.

There are four desserts all for £2.95, including a hot icky sticky pudding. There’s the usual range of hot and cold drinks and a small glass of house red is £3 (or £4.50 for a large one) or £11.50 for the bottle. There’s also a children’s menu.

The Last Word
Showing the way forward for other cafes in the city, Pasaz is a cut above.

Fudge Cafe Restaurant

The American and British fusion menu is complemented by a great wine list which should go down a treat.
