“Real Whitby Jet”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

It's important to ensure that the jet you buy in Whitby is really from there and this shop guarantees to sell you just that. You'll find a splendid selection of Whitby jet creations at several places in the town, but this is probably the best.

“Lovely place to relax and refresh in Whitby”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I found the coffee shop by chance, as a regular visitor to Whitby I had gazed in the shop window many, many times but did not notice that they had a coffee shop upstairs. It was only as I had (for the first time) decided to go in to have a closer look at some jewellery that I spotted the sign for the coffee shop. The staff were very welcoming, we only had coffee but the cakes and scones looked very tempting, the coffee was very good, the decor good and interesting views from the windows watching the visitors go by in the street below. I will definitely go back for a nice relaxing cup of coffee to while away half an hour (with a little piece of naughtiness in the shape of cake thrown in if I have anything to do with it) before tackling the Abbey steps!.

“Lovely but hidden away - easily missed”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

We have been going to whitby for years and only just found this coffee shop. Lovely food, fresh soup and crisp salad. Lovely surroundings, quality fixtures and fittings. You see into the kitchen which looks spotless. tempting cake trolley. Needs more advertising/ signage as you can easily miss this place as you enter through the shop. Well worth a visit.

“Hamond Jet Shop - also a cosy tea shop”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

You could easily miss this tea room just above the Jet Jewellery 'shop'.

Located at the top of whitby's historic Church Street and at the foot of the famous Abbey steps, W Hamond is the town's oldest surviving Whitby Jet Jewellery Shop, and now also a first rate tea shop.

First opened its doors to an admiring public in 1860, at the height of the town's Jet jewellery and ornament production. You can also have a look in the present day workshop.
