Called in late for a drink after a long walk on the Cleveland Way. No scones left as a but late but opted for cakes and hot chocolate. Hot chocolate was great, being served with marshmallows. Very hot and very tasty. Hubby not a lover of marshmallows so was given a biscuit instead - a nice touch. We chose from... More

So calm and relaxing above the bustle of the street. The Art Cafe is somewhere I return to time and time again. Lovely owners, fabulous artwork and really tasty food. The peanut butter and apple sandwich sounds curious but tastes magnificent. Free wifi and a laid back atmosphere The Art Cafe is a must if you want to get away... More

We found this place purely by accident on a quick visit to Whitby. We wanted a coffee and a quiet break from the surging mob that Whitby draws unto itself. You might miss it because it is upstairs but worth the search. A real oasis of calm with a modern touch - losts of good quality art (paintings, sculpture and... More

Finally we have found a place in Whitby that serves excellent coffee! We have tried just about everywhere and this is the best. Others are watery, bitter or tasteless. The owners are really lovely and welcoming and the surroundings (an art and craft gallery) are relaxing and inspirational.

Stopped off just before closing but happy to serve, had home made cakes and coffee. They started to close but told us to stay where we were not a problem. Homeade cakes were gorgeous Coffe and carrot cake very fattening but lovely.

Called in for a light lunch so had one of the homemade soups. Delicious soup, well flavoured. Nice surrounding situated inside the gallery. Pleasant staff.
