Stopped in here a few times for a coffee while my other half was being pampered in town. Could spend hours in here as I am a coffee addict. Very quaint inside but interesting. They also do normal cafe style food but I never indulged. Wish it was closer to home.

Stopped here for coffee one morning whilst visiting Whitby and thought it was a lovely little cafe. The interior is quirky but very relaxing and the coffee and scones were absolutely fantastic. The staff were also all very pleasant and really made you feel comfortable and relaxed. It was also very reasonably priced with 2 hot drinks and 2 scones... More

Really lovely sandwiches and great kids menu for fussy eaters!! Jam or Nutella sandwiches on the menu!! But also much healthier choices too. Friendly staff and a really cozy atmosphere. Would happily recommend.

Great little cafe - lovely home made soup; great fruit smoothes; delicious cakes and good customers service. Called in a few times to this interesting cafe all the staff were polite and attentive but we did feel for the staff at times as there few staff to do a great deal of work.

We visited this coffee house on recommendation from a friend and it was well worth it. We had lunch and enjoyed the quality and the surroundings so much we returned a few hours later for coffee and cake. The prices are also very competitive and the staff were charming

Stumbled across this cafe on our recent trip to Whitby. It looked lovely from the outside and the inside did not disappoint. Had a delicious cake and latte. Quite expensive but no dearer than the rest of the town. Would definitely recommend.

Cosy, quirky, friendly themed cafe. Dog friendly. Was busy mid afternoon and we were lucky to spot a table for 2 tucked away at the back. Carrot cake exquisite!

Been a while since my last visit, but wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff and the same delicious scones and quality cuppa, only problem was the old debate of jam or cream first...

When visiting Whitby this cafe is great for lunch or a coffee & cake. I always have the cream tea & my husband has the lemon cake, both are delicious. The inside is quaint, it almost feels as if you are in the victoriana times, well worth a visit.

Thank Millie W

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.
