“Little Gem”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

There are not many places to eat in Craster but if there was I would still chose Shoreline Cafe. It is a lovely venue that serves great coffee and amazing cakes and I can take my dog there too. After the long walk from Embleton to Craster this cafe was a welcome site, staff are really nice and service is good. Ginger , lime and parsnip cake how good is that! Enjoy

“A smile would go a long way ladies.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Being the only cafe in the village they are not short of custom and they don't have to make much of an effort - so they don't.
When making an order they just stare at you - and you get the same kind of attitude when they are serving.
No flickers of responsiveness, service, smile, kindness or couretsy shown to anyone.
Poor show - and such a let down when their sister pub is so good.

“Great breakfast and coffee”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Sunny cafe with outdoor seating very welcoming of walkers and well behaved dogs;clean and comfortable. Generous and hearty breakfast and good coffee,just what you need after a bracing cliff top walk around Craster. Visited twice the week we stayed in the village.

“Nice coffee”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We popped in here for a coffee as we walked from Seahouses to Dunstan village. It was fairly crowded, but we managed to find a space at the front. This is the area where dogs are allowed, so don't be surprised if you see dogs there. If you want to avoid dogs, go further in. We ordered our coffee at the bar and it was delivered to our table. We were quite happy with the coffee, the price and the service.

“Nice coffee/strange atmosphere”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We liked that it was dog friendly but noticed a total lack of atmosphere. It was almost library like in feel and only saved by the nice coffee.
