A Lancaster-based cafe has plans to open a new location in downtown York. 

Prince Street Cafe signed a 10-year lease to open its second shop on the first floor of the Rupp Building, 2 W. Market St., Royal Square Development & Construction announced Thursday, March 14.

With Prince Street Cafe and anticipated negotiations with The Grotto, an office-leasing company, there is only one remaining space available in Royal Square's latest redevelopment project. 

The cafe will be open daily, offering all-day breakfast, drip coffee, smoothies, loose-leaf teas and more than a dozen lunch and dinner options. The York location also will provide catering and meeting rental space, according to the release. 

Prince Street Cafe caters to a variety of dietary needs, including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options, based on its Lancaster menu.

The third and fourth floors are occupied by Dale E. Anstine law offices.
