“Quirky and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

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.

“Good brews, scones, and sensible service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

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.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

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.
