Description: Beckett's is a small, family-run, dog-friendly coffee shop off the beaten track in lovely Skinner Street. We serve a small but ever-changing menu made from local ingredients where possible including delicious soups and 'beckanini' - which are large, soft and not gum-cloggingly dry. Our cakes are all sticky and home-made using real butter and free-range eggs (the rhubarb and custard cake is a favourite) and new this year are home-made cookies. The coffee is delicious and all Fairtrade.

Very friendly staff and excellent food. Dog friendly - dogs given treat and bowl of water. Well worth a visit for both dogs and humans. A delight for book worms too with wall to wall books for sale. Pure heaven.

We sought out this coffee shop as it was recommended by a friend and we weren't disappointed. The service was prompt and friendly and there was a wide choice of home-made fresh cakes including banana and toffee, chocolate and butterscotch, sticky plum, coffee and more. I had banana and toffee which was delicious; the piece was so big that we... More

All the other customers appeared to be locals and... More

We sought out the cafe for lunch during our stay in Whitby as we brought our Labradoodle with us on holiday. It was raining outside and this was the cosiest little sanctuary we could have asked for. The staff and the clientèle were all so lovely and our 9 month old little boy enjoyed watching the other dogs (who were... More

Visited recently while in Whitby, this was our first visit to Beckett's but it won't be our last. Service was friendly and the coffee and milk shakes excellent, try the crumpets with too much butter absolutely lovely.
