This is such a good place to visit for very tasty food. The cafe is on the coast road between Markse-by-the-Sea and Redcar so you can park on the road if using the car. If walking on the beach this is such a good pitstop - just come up off the beach and enjoy good well cooked food - fresh... More

A busy cafe during peak season, travellers stop off for a quick bite, although, I'm not sure if they ever return as prices have risen and food is not particularly good. The latest decor is somewhat mundane and cheap. This perfectly placed cafe has so much potential under the right manager.

As the owner/manager of The Stray Cafe I am stunned at your recent review. I have owned the Cafe for almost 25 years and business has gone from strength to strength. I do however believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion, although in your case I must inform you that I haven't increased any prices for over 18 months... More

Not haute cusine by any stretch of the imagination, but if you want good food at reasonable prices then this can't be beaten. An indication of its quality is how busy the place gets, even out of season. Highly recommended for a family meal on a day out to sunny Redcar!

This is a great Cafe, the food is delicious and very reasonable priced but the tables outside seem to be getting less and less, its as though they dont want your Custom. Inside its so disorganised you have to queue for ages which is a shame because it could so easily be so much better.

Love the corned beef pie, but also love the setting and it's a nice cosy, friendly place to chillax.
