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.

Lovely spot, staff always cheerful and friendly, with is very important to me. Food is always very tasty and they have the best Mocha drink I have ever tasted. They welcome dogs too which is handy if you are out with your hound.The tables are usually full of locals which says it all. They tend to close for most of... More

popped in for a quick lunch, this is a quaint little coffee shop with a wide range of snack type menu food available. We opted for the cowboy soup, large bowl of home made soup full of flavour and to accompany it very fresh soft bread Staff very friendly and made everyone feel instantly welcome. Would defiantly call in again.... More

Arriving in Whitby around lunch time parked the car and went into Beckett's and ordered toasted tea cake, a dragon sausage beckinni and 2 coffees. The service was quick and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Listening to the local people we learnt that to park in Whitby you needed a parking disc in your car telling the wardens what time... More

Always go here when I am in Whitby. It is not on the main street but still pretty central at top of main hill and turn right. The service is friendly but the cakes are to die for. Yesterday it was lemon and ginger...absolutley delicious and moist.....well I had walked 6 miles from Robin Hood's Bay!

Found the place by chance just walking by and popped in for a coffee and was pleased by the friendly staff and good service. We had toasted tea cakes dripping with butter which were lovely and the coffee really tasted good. There were a couple of dogs in the coffee shop, some people would find this strange but in Europe...

We were drawn to Becketts by the trip advisor reviews and oh boy we were not disappointed. It's a very small, slightly quirky tea room that focuses on exceptional Yorkshire hospitality, tea, coffee, cakes and light savoury food; oh and second hand books. They are also, pleasantly, dog friendly. Visiting the area with friends, it was time for a drink... More
