After some disappointments in Scarborough, we got round to trying the Harbour View Café for breakfast. This place caters for the local Fishermen and we caught the tail end of the breakfast rush.

This place doesn't look like much but it offers delicious fish and chips and a warm welcome with views over both the harbour and south bay.

My partner and I visited Scarborough earlier this week and had breakfast twice at this great little hidden away gem. I had seen it on Trip Advisor before we went and as I very much enjoy a fry up, thought we would give it a go. We both had a standard English breakfast with tea, which cost £11.00 in total,... More
