Description: This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.

The place is fantastic in terms of decor and price. Downsides for our visit were; 1. No soya milk 2. We ordered two bacon sandwiches, after ordering we were then told they only had one bread roll so would they mind one being in a ciabatta (strange that delivery hadn't come by 10am). We were then served with two bacon... More

Totally unexpected atmosphere, like walking into a book. Lovely place to come for lunch and cakes are lovely. It's tight and unusual. Your not likely to get a buggy in but I could spend all day in here.

We used to call in every time we visited the town & popped in on a Monday after the very busy goth weekend. Top floor was closed so only downstairs to serve & wasn't that busy. Yet service took ages for just a dessert & a toasted stottie. Never experienced such long delay before so wondering if things have gone... More

It seems small but there are backrooms to sit in and dogs are welcome. It was a nice cuppa and the chocolate fudge cake was gorgeous :-)

The scones here are to die for! Service could be better, staff forgot to give us our water, once we asked for it, there were bits floating in it (not sure if it was deliberate or not) but we asked for another one and it was fine. Other than that, I can't fault it, the food was great. Like the... More

Lovely coffee shop. Good range of tea, coffee and food at good prices. However this is let down by the speed of service. It took 20 minutes to get two coffees and two tea cakes. The problem, only one person serving. Sort the service problem and this coffee shop would be spot on.

Lovely inside, quite old decor to go with the Sherlock theme. Quite small inside but they do have the back room and upstairs, that was called Mr Watson. The Tea was lovely and had a nice piece of Victoria sponge. They do afternoon tea with there own home made scones. You take a seat, choose from the menus found on... More

The whole place looked amazing. They have thought about every detail for everything in the cafe. The food and drinks didn't disappoint either. The hot chocolate was large and my daughter finished it all. Cakes were home made and so moist. We found this by accident but it is now on our list of places to return to.

We wondered in here at random and the waitress tried to persuade us to leave due to lack of tables when there were 3 tables at the back and a whole empty floor upstairs. The food was reasonable -nice soup, very small overpriced open sandwich, and unexciting cakes but the thing that really put me off was the service. When... More

We visited on a very busy half term afternoon. This coffee house is very charming with lots of character. We ordered tea for 3, 2 lemon meringue pies an a fruit scone with cream and butter. The staff was friendly and we had two very large slices of lemon meringue pie which was delicious. The scone was about inches high... More
