I have had numerous meals in this cafe and think they do one of the best jumbo breakfasts going. 5* hygiene/cleanliness rating too! The cafe is set on the grass above the beach and has fantastic sea views all the way to Saltburn. Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Highly recommended.

This cafe never disappoints.

We always use this cafe when visiting Redcar and have always been very pleased with it. The location is ideal, being on a large grassy area just south of town, with easy access to the prom and beach and with good on-street parking. The building itself can be best described as a rather large hut... read more

My daughter, myself and three year old twins called in on a windy day for the very first time. We had gorgeous warming winter lattes and the twins ice cream. We were very disappointed that we had already eaten as the home made food looked so tempting and the cakes looked gorgeous. You need an appetite to do justice to... More

Dog walkers galore stop here for good reason. Home made cakes are tasty. Some gluten free things available. Staff efficient and polite. Good selection of food available.

Service was slap handed and the area we sat at had a filthy table and the floor... More

This cafe is lovely, it's directly on the sea front, away from the busy town centre and next to green playing fields. The cafe itself is quite small and it's often difficult to get a seat inside if it's busy. The food is great with the typical breakfasts and toasties you'd expect from a local cafe. It certainly has character,... More

Decided to park up outside this cafe & walk to Saltburn. Filled up on a nice milky coffee & a bacon & egg butty. Been a couple of times before. It's often busy but it's worth the wait. Basic seating & conveniences but ignore that because the food & beverages speak for themselves. After the walk we returned to afternoon... More
