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!

Really enjoyed our lunch here. Quirkily served in wooden boxes lined with grease proof paper our meals were more than satisfying. I had the Sloppy Joe which is an unconstructed burger, essentially some cooked minced beef with a hint of chilli and sweet gherkins in a large ciabatta accompanied by some yummy thin cut chips in a paper bag, coleslaw and a small salad which could have done with a better seasoned dressing , but I'm being picky here. One of the burgers was a little dry and overcooked. I don't think you are given the option of how the burgers are cooked. A slab of delicious carrot cake finished both us a nod the meal of in style.
Well done! Will definitely return.

Went to Eat Me for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Whilst I agree the café itself is interesting in terms of décor and also has some interesting touches such as a tea cosy on the tea pot and milk served in 1/3 bottles harking back to school days, the full breakfast (£6) we had was nice but nothing exceptional and neither was the service. So, for breakfast, average for us.

Hello and thanks for taking the time to review or cafe, we do appreciate all our customers feedback.
Sorry you feel that you had only an average/nice breakfast that particular Saturday. We do often get quite busy on saturday mornings, but this should never reflect on either the quality of our food nor the service that you recieve.
We apologise profusely to have only given you and average visit, we do hope that you will try us again sometime to see that we are at least above average in all we endeavour, whether it be for breakfast or one of our lunches, or even our evenings that we do thursday to saturdays.
Kindest regards
Stephen

This place was brilliant. We come to Scarborough once per year for a field trip with a level students from Shropshire. The staff treat themselves to a meal at a chain of Italian restaurants. However this year we decided that we would have something different. We checked out TripAdvisor and this place came near the top. The menu is huge, but don't let that put you off, the food was absolutely fantastic. Good, wholesome food, good portions and great tastes - what more could you ask for!?!? Excellent value and will definitely call again. Thanks very much.
