What a lovely cafe this is. We went with a large (well behaved) dog and we're made welcome. None of the 'sit outside' stuff you get in many places. Fabulous fresh homemade scones, pots of tea and very reasonable too. The front dining area was lovely too. The staff are very friendly. All in all, a perfect venue. Oh yes,... More

This is a great place for breakfast with the wonderful Craster kippers on offer or an excellent full English. Lunch menu offers a good selection of sandwiches or baked potatoes with fillings. All food well presented and tasty. A warm welcome from friendly staff. Dog owners note, you will be very welcome here with your dog. We would certainly make... More

First time here but will definitely re-visit when next in Craster. Good soup and sandwiches in a busy but comfy café. Felt under-dressed without a dog or two!

We stopped in here after a lovely walk along the coast - along with our two teenagers and a dog. The coffee, hot chocolate and cakes were great - not overly priced and such a luxury to be able to sit inside with the dog. The staff could not have been more helpful or welcoming even when the dog spilled... More

Overlooking the harbour this cafe is clean, quick and does a good coffee. Staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. The dog loved it too. Definitely recommend.

We stopped off for coffee after a long walk along the coast. We sat outside as we have a dog. The coffee and cake was delicious. The café was lovely and clean and modern. A very nice café.

Called in here whilst walking the coast path and what a find, friendly safe, good food well priced, they also will make you sandwiches and drinks to take away which I must say are well worth getting, made fresh while you wait,

We've called here a couple of times as we've passed by on the Coastal Challenge for a well earned cuppa but today came prepared with refillable mugs to take away #wastenot. They were filled, no problem, by the busy but friendly staff and the coffees were great. We enjoyed them sitting on a bench overlooking the harbour.

Visited this cafe in September 2016 and found it cosy and inviting. Dogs were allowed in, that was a bonus. The staff were friendly and helful and the food was great.

My friend and I sat outside to have breakfast at 10:00 on a Sunday morning. We both chose the kippers, which came with wholemeal bread and butter and grilled tomatoes. They also did a single sausage to order for my friend's dog. Lovely food, lovely staff, and a nice little shop stocked up with essentials (they should make more of... More
