YUM!

Lovely quirky place! Good coffee and Victoria sponge cake to die for! Will definitely be returning! One thing I will say but not the businesses fault, it is pretty much out of the way! But it is worth it!

Lovely place. Very quirky. We sampled the cream teas (warm scone and excellent clotted cream) hot chocolate fudge cake (yummy) and good string coffee. Loved it.

Absolutely loved this place, it was a great find. As a pretty big Holmes fan I loved all the little sherlockisms around. We sat I'm Doctor Watsons booth and I drank a moriarty smoothie ( which was delicious) my partner had cream tea, my daughter had strawberry milkshake and a delicious looking angel cake, whereas I went for the fruit...

There are lots of places to eat and drink in Whitby but this is charming. Lovely old worldly feel about it and a wonderful selection of freshly baked home made cakes. The fresh fruit scones were the best I have had in a very long time. The staff helpful and delightful, and the whole experience very reasonably priced. Do take... More

quirky little cafe on a Sherlock theme, with the best scones I have had in years. Good service, great atmosphere and some really good 'junk' to keep you entertained all around the rooms

I'd heard about this through a friend and was really excited about trying it. I was not let down, the decor was ace and the scones were on point. The only thing I would maybe suggest would be that maybe they could use traditional teacups and saucers. Fussy I know but when I'm having cream tea I do like to... More

2 days in Whitby and visited twice. The cream tea is excellent in-particular the scones, freshly made and extremely tasty. Good value too... I noticed that the cafe is dog friendly, what a pleasant change, and therefore presents even more opportunity to revisit.
