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

Staff indifferent -chatted among themselves and left me waiting. Treated me with disdain when I said 'Excuse me can I get 2 coffee's please?' Got them only to sit down at a dirty table. Won't be going back any time soon.

Went in whilst walking from redcar to marske and although busy it was unbelievably disorganised. Cramped tables inside and left uncleared for ages. No clean cutlery for our food and when i asked for some it was like i had asked for the earth! Service was poor and even a sign stuck on the cupboard door saying something about customer... More

This little cafe is amazing. True value for money, big portions of cake, burgers, breakfasts, sandwiches, etc, most of which are home made. Friendly staff, spotlessly clean, even bowls of water for all the dogs that enjoy their walkies on this part of this Heritage Coast. Loads of parking on the road and it's free! Give it a try, you...

The weather was not good and therefore nobody was using the outside facilities. This is a super cafe but has not been treated fairly when they were turned down in their application for an extension. The place was chock a block and extremely noisy and uncomfortable. The staff did the best they could and the food was good and varied.... 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.
