We had a quick chip butty each after an 8 mile walk round Scarborough! Service was very friendly with a smile. People on the next table had the big breakfast, more like huge I would say!! Good value for one and not rammed to the rafters like the seafront cafes

Little cafe up some stairs on the pier but food excellent and you see why the local fishermen choose it. The staff were so kind and welcoming as we arrived with 3 children and a baby. All fed, fab portions, delicious food beautifully done and all happy. Will be back.

A busy family day out in Scarborough was made perfect by this amazing little gem! There's nothing like this in the rest of the town. Don't be put off by having to drive down to the dockside or walk along the quay. Theres a reason for this location: it's right next to the fishing boats and fish market. Fresher fish... More

The best fish and chips and mushy peas together with obligatory bread and butter and pot of tea since my visit a couple of years back. Friendly personable service in a squeaky clean cafe.

We had lunch with our two year old twins. Haddock was delicious with a nice light and crispy batter. Chips were good. The children's portions were very generous and far more than they could eat but they had a good go. They loved being able to see the fishing boats! The staff were very welcoming. Yes there was a smell... More
