A welcoming cafe close to the sea. Good choice of snacks, cakes and beverages at a very reasonable price. Very popular at all times of the year.

Approached the cafe, I asked if it was ok to take the dog in, a member of staff snapped 'no' and pushed past me. Unbelievably rude! Lots of outdoor seating, some of which is undercover, so there is some logic to them not allowing dogs inside but aside from training their staff to communicate properly with their customers, they need...

Lovely little cafe looking over the beach at the southern end of Redcar. The views are beautiful from the cafe looking over the beach and out to sea.

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.

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.
