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.

The café has limited facilities due to its size, however the food is OK and drinks OK, toilet clean, outside eating. We visited on a hot Sunday afternoon, steady flow of customers, did not hear any complaints.Order food at the counter and its delivered to your table. This is not fine dinning but a good place to stop for a... More

Went to Stray Café this morning for breakfast the food was really good but the service and the cleanliness of the place leaves a lot to be desired. The floor was filthy there are boxes everywhere and the staff are to busy talking to serve half the time. I was very disapointed as we have always previously really enjoyed ourselves... More

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.

Stopped here for a drink this afternoon. Great location, friendly staff, amazing looking homemade cakes. Food in general looked nice. Ideal place to stop whilst walking your dog.

Cafe is situated in a nice location ideal for when you've had a walk along the beach but that is as good as it gets. Considering there wasn't many people in the the service was poor, the table was dirty and we had to ask twice for it to be cleaned, two sets of the cutlery had to be changed... More

May I start by apologising profusely about your experience. I am sorry that you found the cafe to be unhygienic, with dirty tables, cutlery and cups, however I am very shocked at these allegations as we have a very strict daily cleaning routine and have held a local authority 5 star hygiene certificate since they were introduced. It is extremely... More

Ideally situated on the coast road between Redcar and Marske. There is indoor and outdoor seating available. Extensive menu at very reasonable prices. Although it was very busy the staff were on the ball, tables were wiped clean as soon as they were vacated, service was prompt and friendly. Would highly recommend as a stop off for refreshments if walking... More
