Description: This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.

This is a strange place that is a bit of a 'Tardis' lots of little nooks and crannies. It won't be to everyone's taste. If you like über cool and minimalist I would avoid. But if you want character, decent coffee and cake and somewhere a bit more personal then this is the place to go.

At the height of the tourist season during Whitby folk week, I discovered this place. It is small and crowded. If you can get a table, all will be fine.

The service is a little unusual in that once seated, you order at the counter, then your stuff is brought to your table. You pay at the end. The girls working there were extremely busy and but all polite, smiling and professional. This arrangement with counter service worked well. I hate bad service, which is the norm rather than the exception in Blighty, as we know.

My wife, 2 year old son and I had cream teas, and they were just lovely. Thank you!

Great place for coffer - the Sherlock theme is nicely done and this is a real find for coffee morning drinkers.

This little coffee shop has a nice atmosphere and there are some interesting things to look at in there.
We found the staff to be most welcoming and the service was good and the coffee to be excellent as well as a very reasonable price.

Popped in here while staying in Whitby to rest tired feet and sample some of the yummy-looking cakes in the window, and they certainly didn't disappoint! Be aware, this place is VERY popular and gets full quite quickly - while we were in several people came in and had to either wait or come back later. Having said that, the staff were really friendly and helpful, and always checked to see what tables were likely to be come free with an idea of a timescale - most commendable.
