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.

This is an amazing coffee shop with some of the best homemade cakes we have ever had! Everything about Beckets makes you feel relaxed and happy. The walls of the coffee shop are lined with books and they have a selection of reading glasses to borrow if you have left yours at home. The real stars of the show are... More

After having read the reviews for this coffee shop we made a visit 7th April. The cakes were excellent, very moist and very moorish. The paninis were also excellent. Well worth a trip.

Really liked this place. Has a very nice feel to it with wall to wall books (reasonably priced for sale) and inviting descriptions of the food and drink available. All the people working there were extremely friendly and the hot drinks and cakes were excellent. Our only beef was that like many places in Whitby the opening hours are a... More

Cosy atmosphere, book lined walls, attention to detail, dog friendly, homemade everything, cow shaped milk jug! Nice fresh food beautifully presented, very good quality produce including drinks. My advice.....pound the streets and beaches whatever the weather then collapse in this café for a warm up. You won't be disappointed. PS Closed on Wednesdays I think.

Six if us went to this lovely coffee shop today and were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The food was lovely, the staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was great. We came here with our dog for a much needed escape from the sea breeze. It was my dad's 60th and we left with a... More

I do not live in Whitby but have been going to Becketts almost since it opened whenever I do go to Whitby. It is always the same; welcoming, good value, simple but good menu and cakes that are so amazing you have to break your diet. Email in advance and the gluten free beetroot cake will be made for you.... More
