Good to find

Really nice cup of tea, with a tempting selection of cakes - the chocolate and orange scone was as good as it sounds. Hard to be talking about "excellent" on the basis of a quick cup of tea, but given the lack of such places in Craster this was a really welcome find.

Love this place. Perfect for lunch or a snack after a bracing walk to the castle. We have been here a few times and look forward to the crab sandwiches, haddock chowder and cake for afters.Very welcoming, good value, great location

Visited at lunchtime and was pleased to find dogs and muddy boots both welcome. Not an extensive menu but service was quick although not especially friendly. A bit pricy for a sandwich but the coffee was good.

We visited the Shoreline Cafe for a coffee whilst we were in Craster. The cafe is well situated, past the smoke house, opposite a small art gallery, at the top of the rise. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff efficient; there are a lot of staff so you don't have to wait long to be served. The menu caters... More

The café is really nice for a coffee but with a dairy free diet, I didn't eat anything as there was nothing advertised and I didn't want to ask

Quite pricey for the size of the sandwich. Would return for coffee and cake though as it is a nice cafe.

Not many places treat in tiny Craster. Dying for a coffee, this little cafe didn't open until 10am. A queue collected outside waiting for it to open. Once in our order was taken quickly and the food served the same. As a coeliac I want expecting much but I was delighted to find that they offered a good range of... More

My visit to the Shoreline Cafe last Saturday (July 4th) kept me thinking for quite some time after I had left which is why I decided to write review (not a thing I usually do). I had a very mixed experience there and was especially surprised about the very reserved atmosphere: only one staff (out of 4) said good morning... More
