Description: This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.

“Elementary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The themed decor was well executed,nice but average coffee, quality of cakes above the usual, but not that unusual in terms of range. Certainly in the top three for coffeehouses for Whitby.

“Best coffee and scones in Whitby!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Whilst visiting Whitby we found this gem of a place. Friendly staff with homely surroundings - and they serve the best coffee and scones (with jam and cream) at reasonable prices.

“Nostalgic tea room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The tea rooms were done out like Sherlock Holmes study and parlour. Excellent prices for coffees etc. music of the era playing. Gave me lots of ideas for my bookshelves at home. Can't wait to put them into practice. Excellent experience I recommend the tea room highly

“Quirky and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

This is a strange place that is a bit of a 'Tardis' lots of little nooks and crannies. It won't be to everyone's taste. If you like über cool and minimalist I would avoid. But if you want character, decent coffee and cake and somewhere a bit more personal then this is the place to go.
