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.

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,...More

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.
