Perfect place for an any time of the day Full English breakfast with all the trimmings. Excellent food, real tea, wonderful chipper helpful staff, just listening to their chatter was entertainment enough. Easy parking and just a walk away from views of the North sea.

Just called in for ice creams on very hot day. Always seems to be busy and the menu choice is excellent. Seats inside and outside and water trough for dogs supplied too.

Unfriendly staff, couldn't crack a smile and I'm pretty sure they don't understand the meaning of customer service. My friend asked for water for the dog in their bowls, was snapped at, quite nasty. Shame as its the only stop along the coast road.

We had passed by the stray cafe many times but it had been closed so on this occasion we thought we would give it a try. There are plenty of tables and chairs outside so dogs are welcome. It also makes it possible to get out of a chilly breeze. The cafe was bright and clean, the staff were well... More

I have had numerous meals in this cafe and think they do one of the best jumbo breakfasts going. 5* hygiene/cleanliness rating too! The cafe is set on the grass above the beach and has fantastic sea views all the way to Saltburn. Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Highly recommended.
