Description: Eat Me Cafe sits quietly in a backstreet of Scarborough behind the world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre. We offer a diverse multicultural menu, serving hand-packed burgers, Japanese Ramen, Shetland Pie, Thai Curries.... And much much more. 95% Of our food is made in-house from scratch. Our wide range of cakes changes daily. We serve our own much loved blend of coffee, fair trade certified and expertly roasted by The Heavenly Coffee Company and this can't be found anywhere else. All our food is cooked to order, and at busy times there may be a delay. Our chips are skin on for goodness and seasoned with Eat Me's own blend seasoning. We only use Butter on our breads and please be aware that Our Kitchen contains nuts, both kinds. If you have special dietary requirements please let us know and we will try to accommodate. We always have dairy free butter alternatives and soya milk on request, as well as Gluten Free bread for those sandwich requirements. Also, during the day when busy you may be asked to share a table, you never know who you might meet. We love Yorkshire and Scarborough and were so proud to receive The Good Food Guide Cafe of the Year 2014 award and be in the guide again for 2015. We embrace our quirkiness, bringing a smile to our customers faces from the moment they walk in! Finally if you are in a rush for the theatre, the train or collecting the kids please let us know, we will do all we humanly can!

“Eat m'mmme!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I requested a booking, for a pre-theatre meal, by leaving a message on the answermachine and had a response, later that day, advising me that because of a cancellation there was a table and that it was advisable to eat at 6 o'clock to be on time for the performance.
On arrival we were warmly welcomed and shown to the table. We found the decor interesting and in some cases familiar from previous life! The owner, with the lovely voice and accent from the telephone message, came to inform us of one or two items available but not on the menu as only in small numbers but we had already chosen from the very original and delicious sounding menu for the night. Our food, when it arrived was very well and simply presented without unnecessary adornment or 'artistry'; portions were substantial and every mouthful as delicious as the menu promised.
We were impressed by every aspect of this experience as well as the convenience for pre-theatre occasions.
Fortunately the regular, excellent programme of events at the theatre will mean many more visits to Eat me!

“You don't have to book for lunch”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Past visits here have had to be booked well in advance for dinner. However today I walked in at lunch time and ordered the Shetland Pie (Eat me take on cottage pie) and I much prefer the tasty peppery version at Eat Me. As a scot myself I much prefer the highly seasoned meat dishes and the Shetland Pie is a tasty treat, served in a large soufflé dish topped with crunchy on top mashed potato. Served with 2 fresh vegetable and a bag of delicious thin chips. I had no room for one of the delicious sweets on offer and had a coffee, and all this for under £7,50, very reasonable. Friendly and helpful staff made this a very relaxing visit and of course I shall return.

“With it?”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Following a lie in and a missed free B&B breakfast we happened upon Eat Me Cafe. A quaint, family friendly and strangely trendy establishment. Looking around the courses looked pretty substantial. More than we were after - so we stuck to the sandwiches; fish finger for me and ham, cheese and tomato for her.
Choices of bread, served with (homemade I think) crisps & salad. Nice enough and other meals looked lovely. Not the cheapest at £12.50 with soft drinks, but little things like the ham being 'proper ham' makes it a place I'd recommend.

“Brilliant lunch”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Had lunch here today before the theatre. Superb, beautifully presented, inventive food. Take your own wine and pay corkage, donated to the SJT. Brilliant idea. Excellent, cheerful service. No reservations and had to wait a while but well worth it. Will go again.
