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.

fabulous place and dog friendly

visited yesterday. Had a gourgous cherry and almond cake which was homemade. we also had a toasted current tea cake which was delicious. The coffee was excellent to. Our dog was made to feel very welcome to with a bowl of water and a dog treat. well worth a visit to this little Jem.

This homely coffee shop is a little piece of 'me time'-even when I'm with my husband. It has a great atmosphere, fantastic freshly baked cakes and also allows dogs. The menu albeit small is fresh and seasonal making the whole thing a real lovely treat.

Wow what can i say about my favourite cafe, here you will find a dig friendly caf that serves the most fab cakes iv ever had but they're big enough for 2 unless you're greedy like me! With a huge range of different teas and drinks and fabulous warm welcoming staff it's sure to become your favourite cafe too.!!

Great choc orange cake and coffee. I like the friendly and informal atmosphere and the room layout. Not so sure about the dogs but that's me.

Found reviews on here as we were looking for a dog friendly cafe. We stopped by for a cup of tea (would have loved to have tried the food but were still full of fish n chips!). Our dog was welcomed with a bowl of water and a treat which she loved. The staff were brilliant, great service and the... More

This was a first time visit to Whitby as dog adopters, from previous experience we knew that Beckett's welcomed dogs so we had planned our trip with a stop-off in mind. After a walk along the beach, the harbour walls and the shops to the southern side of the town we made our way to Becketts. Now as relatively new... More

We have visited before and loved it and it was even better than before. Fantastic indulgent hot chocolate, sumptuous cake in lovely surroundings. A word of warning, if you are not a dog person it may not be the place for you because it is extremely dog friendly but even if you don't like pooches it is still worth a... More

Just got back from 3 days in Whitby, Becketts wa recommended by a friend. The coffee was just as it should be,dark,strong and full of flavour. The cakes are amazing, but 3 days on cake is not good for the waistline ha ha. The staff are all welcoming and clearly understand the meaning of customer service.
