Best value fish and chips always fresh and cooked to order, friendly staff, always accommodating. Great views over the harbour, on a wet or sunny day. Small and friendly used by locals so must be good. The breakfast are also great value.

This is where a lot of local fishermen go and you can see on the menu, which boat your fish came in on. I had the monk fish and it was lovely. Great view of the harbour and castle, lovely food - all fresh cooked as well as great service.

The ladies who worked behind the counter greeted with a smile and they were more than happy to cater for me being a veggie and making something that wasn't on the menu. The food was delicious and the views from the balcony were beautiful. The fact the place is dog friendly topped it for us. The dog was able to... More

Decided to try this cafe after all the great reviews on Tripadvisor, but what a disapointment it was, whilst walking up to the counter to place our order the girl behind the counter was on her mobile phone which wasn't a good start, after receiving our breakfast, we realised they hadn't given us our toast, so my wife went back...

Attended twice in two days for a morning cuppa and was lucky enough to grab a spot over the harbour. Service very good and friendly. Food looked ok from what we saw.

Informal, clean and pleasant and great basic food. This is where Terry Wogan ate fish and chips and he loved it.

I didn't get chance to leave a review last time I was here, so here goes. Nice friendly atmosphere, food is good too. Bit pricey for what it is, but not too expensive. Overall nice and friendly, polite staff, good food.

We stumbled across this café for breakfast, and thankful we were! What a lovely café, with an excellent choice of breakfast options. The service was very personal and the café offers excellent views across the harbour. A must for breakfast in Scarborough!

We saw a sign for the Harbour View Café on the main street while walking back on the front to the car, as it was out of the way we decided to look it up on trip advisor first then wander back to it. After reading all of the glowing reviews we had to give it a try. Do not... More
