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.

Good food, always busy

The cafe is in a great location along The Stray, only a very short walk to the beach. It's always busy and sometimes it's difficult to get a seat, it can be rather noisy too.The food is basic stuff but fresh and tasty with decent portions.

Food is ok but then it is a cafe. The service was poor as most of the tables had plates/cups from previous customers and hadn't been cleared away. Partner ordered drinks and something to eat yet food came a long time after drinks.

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

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, which is perhaps part of... 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.
