Don't know how we managed to miss this place before. Huge slices of home-baked cake with real food ingredients. Big selection of teas, nice savouries, milkshakes, lovely staff, super-helpful. Will definitely be back, thanks 💖

Fantastic coffee shop serving hot/cold food, with the advantage of being dog friendly. Excellent paninis and the rhubarb and custard cake is fab!! Treats for the dogs as well :)

A great little cafe where dogs and kids are made to feel especially welcome. The staff are great and the food and drinks excellent. Great prices and best of all its not one of the chains!

We've been here a few times (although this was the first time with our new dog) and each time we've managed to try a different chunk of cake. This time I chose the toffee and banananana cake. Thankfully, we were also presented with enough cutlery to do the cake justice. The slice was big enough to choke a cart horse.... More

A woman after my own heart, the queen of old school cakes and an independent. So much to choose from, the two different cakes we tried were gorgeous and moist.the coffee was very good too! Highly recommended, you really must try this place. Looking forward to my next visit.

One of the nicest cafes in Whitby, dog friendly brilliance! Absolutely loved it. Highly recommended. Try the panini or 'beckini'. Bit over priced but would still recommend.

Description
Beckett's is a small, family-run, dog-friendly coffee shop off the beaten track in lovely Skinner Street. We serve a small but ever-changing menu made from local ingredients where possible including delicious soups and 'beckanini' - which are large, soft and not gum-cloggingly dry. Our cakes are all sticky and home-made using real butter and free-range eggs (the rhubarb and custard cake is a favourite) and new this year are home-made cookies. The coffee is delicious and all Fairtrade.
