Description: 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.

I've visited several times in the past year, it's a lovely place to meet up with friends. The food is nice but it takes an age for items to be cooked/toasted and served. I've been a waitress and worked in kitchens and coffees and toasted T-cakes not matter how nice shouldn't take 20mins to appear.

The café is located on the coast road (A1085) that runs between Redcar and Saltburn. Ample road-side parking is available and both inside and outside seating is provided for customers. On a sunny day this is a tremendous place to go for an outdoor coffee, sandwich, ice-cream or one of the other delicious meals on offer. Of course, the food... More

We called in , I had a cafe speciality with chips which tasted like oven chips which were not properly cooked. Staff a bit abrupt perhaps they were a bit stressed / had a hard day. Wished we'd given it a miss.
