“Smile invoking....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Visited here with my two young children. The choice of ice cream flavours were vast, fairly priced and tasted amazing, invoking memories of childhood flavoured sweets. The staff were very helpful and even assisted, when my two year threw his pennies under the counter. The staff appear genuinely bubbly and pleased to welcome all walks of life. This approach just builds on top of an already, phenomenal, retro 50s atmosphere that makes this establishment as not to be missed when visiting Bridlington.

“Authentic retro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This cafe retains its 1950s/1960s feel, decor, menu and service. This cafe is great for Babyboomers to relive their childhood visits to the seaside or for Gen Ys to get a taste of the era. The cafe is small inside with outside seating. The coffee is good and the ice creams come in authentic glasses (including the Knickerbocker Glory).
Well worth a visit if just to experience the nostalgia.
