A fantastic cafe with a wonderful range of coffees, teas and cakes. The staff are polite and efficient, and the location is great on the waterfront in Scarborough. I can recommend the moccachino!

From full English Breakfast to coffee/tea and cake this place as a good choice of food. Seating inside and out and parking in front its a good place to stop off. Service with a smile and the food is well cooked.

They do quite a range of things from fish & chips to an English Cream Tea. Food is well done and cakes and scones as fresh as they come. Definitely recommended for a quiet break in pleasant surroundings.

We just love it especially in winter. Walk the dog, go for hot chocolate or breakfast. Always great food and service. A very different and special place.

We enjoyed the cafe because of the quality of the food and coffee, the great view, the pleasant atmosphere and good staff attitude to customers . The food claims local ethical sourcing which we appreciate. The breakfast was tasty , not greasy and I think freshly cooked by the reasonable time we waited for service . Recommended

Over the last three years I often eaten at the cafe. On my latest visit the food was poor. The sausage was charcoal black, the bacon rubbery, the egg sat in a bath of burnt fat. When my wife tried to return the sausage the waitress seemed not to recognise how bad the meal appeared. When we looked round we... More
