Beautiful Fresh Fish

We arrived late on a Friday afternoon, the specials were all gone and it was nearly closing time but the chef prepared us two incredible pieces of pan fried plaice accompanied by a delicious salad with feta & olives. Lovely, friendly service too! We'll be returning (earlier next time) for lunch.

We recently visited Saltburn-on-Sea and looked for a cafe to have a mid-morning drink and snack at. We looked at all the options in the town centre and this place stuck out as looking the most interesting. They didn't have any of the lemon cake I asked for but the shop assistant told me that their home made lemon curd... More

It has been a while since we visited Saltburn but it was a sunny day, although windy, so we decided to get some sea air. I checked Tripadvisor before setting off and we decided to try Real Meals as, after looking at their menu online, they seemed to offer something a bit different. They are really a deli with some...

Visiting my family in Saltburn we decided (much to my regret) to have a cup of coffee /lunch in Real Meals Delicatessen /Cafe in Saltburn. My mum and her friend arrived first and started with coffee and scones I quickly followed and bought another round of coffee for them and a coffee for myself. We drank our coffee and discussed...

Hi. I'm so sorry you didn't get your lunch at Real Meals. We take customer feed back very seriously and go back to staff to discuss it with them. The 'elderly chap' you mentioned is the owner of the business and remembers the incident well, as he was quite upset by it. We are a very busy deli/cafe with only... More

Drove through Saltburn today looking for somewhere to grab a quick bite to eat. I'm so glad we found Real Meals. As we entered the front door of this quirky deli, the first thing I noticed was the array of inviting smells coning from both the kitchen and deli counter. The reggae beats playing in the background was well suited... More

Locally family run superb food emporium.This is not that great of a secret as they have been featured in the National Press due to the quality of what they produce and sell. The homemade scones are particularly great. You cannot visit Saltburn without having a Real Meal.

I really love this cafe and often take friends there when they visit. Without fail the staff are always really accommodating. What makes them stand out from other places is that whenever they see me breastfeeding they ALWAYS bring over a jug of water without me ever asking, and now that my little one is big enough to sit up...

We went here for lunch on Sunday afternoon. It's a deli-come-cafe so it sells meats, cheeses, pickles etc off the shelves as well as breakfasts, saenies and puddings. Everything was freshly prepared and the staff were happy to mix up the menu to accommodate us! Fruit smoothies were delicious as were the pork baguettes, served with a leafy salad and... More
