This place has the advantage of being the only coffee shop (much needed) in Craster . Pleasantly presented and fairly nice coffee however the staff attitude leaves room for improvement . I was surprised that two staff served on our table which was covered in coffee and crumbs from previous customers and did nothing until I suggested they might wipe... More

Try to visit this cafe when in Craster and after a bracing walk on a cold March day decided to return. Food and service still excellent and the cafe was very busy despite it being a cold day midweek in March. My wife and I both had the soup served piping hot with a good sized bread bun and I... More

Lovely clean cafe found after our long walk along the beach. Welcomed our little dog and sandy boots. Huge range of scones and cakes, great value. We had tea and shared one portion of a raspberry chocolate cake, delicious!

We called in by chance, what a great little find. We stopped for a while and rested our legs. We tried some of their delicious homemade scones. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We will most certainly be back when we have time to sample some more of the menu.

Popped in for lunch whilst holidaying in the area with our two dogs. Very good decking area at the front which copes well with wet/muddy dogs. It was quiet when we were there but food was good and we'd definitely visit again.

Which was a pity, as we really wanted some soup and sandwiches, the menu says served till 1530 but kitchen had stopped early. So we had coffee and cakes which was fine. Nice inside, dogs welcome, and many people taking advantage of that, as many dogs dining out. Will try again another time.

No plain scones , no filter coffee, limited menu , others heard being disappointed too . Looks like a good customer overflow traffic from the Jolly Fisherman , could do better !
