Craster is a small little fishing portion the Northumbrian Coast and the Shoreline Café is a little treasure. A small café but the winter menu is a dream. The smoked haddock chowder, using local fish, was a dream and my wife's tomato and pepper soup was divine. Well worth a visit, the ambience is great, the service superb and it... More

This is a lovely little cafe offering a good range of coffees and snacks. Always greeted with a friendly smile which was most welcome this week when it was filthy outside. Worth a visit if in the area

We visited late October 2014 - found Staff unfriendly don't know if that because we walked in just after it opened at 10am! Coffee was cold. Decided to walk to the cafe on a cold morning for the 10am opening this week - Wednesday, 14/1/15. After a four mile we walk arrived at 10.10 am to find it closed. Huge... More

Myself and a colleague were up the coast getting sunrise pictures of Dunstanburgh Castle early on 05 Jan 2015, we got a tad hungry and decide to pop to Craster for a Bacon Sandwich. We chose the Shorline as seemed to be the only cafe open early on. We both went for the Bacon, Sausage and Egg Bap. All I... More

This is a lovely cafe with a real beach feel from the decking as floorboards to the cushions tables and chairs. Wonderful selection of her drinks and homemade cakes. The scones are delicious. Very friendly staff. A perfect place to refeul after a walk along the coast to the castle.

Nice and cosy, but the staff need to be more friendly. Just point out they were not rude, but good seaside venues and good coffee are plentiful and you tend to remember a nice smile and some pleasant banter.

Poor coffee which was spilled over into the saucer on arrival. Scones were rock hard and tasteless. The owner wasn't really interested in rectifying the problem. We were glad to leave. We will not be back.

A nice little cafe but it is irritating to make your selection at the counter then have to pay before being served with your order, a bit like McDonalds but it portrays a higher image. Coffee was fine, flapjack stale and the cake expensive.

We've been visiting this part of the world for the past 3 years, and this was the first time we popped into Shoreline Café. It's very nicely decorated, inside and out, staff were friendly and welcoming (not always the case when you turn up with a tired, fractious 3 yr old). The coffees and cakes were great (coffee and walnut... More

This is a little gem. Great food and has great views out to sea. Very friendly service and dogs welcome. We had a breakfast here (excellent) before our walk to Dunstanbrough Castle. The café is well worth a visit. Good value.
