Description: Boddy's Cafe in the heart of Scarborough on Bar Street in the pedestrian area. The cafe has been open since 1984 but the Boddy Family have been catering since 1962 just celebrating 50 years in the business.Boddys uses only local suppliers for all there food and everything bar bread and teacakes are made on the premises which we think is quite rare these days.We pride ourselves on our fast efficient and friendly service.Why not come and sample some of our home made food and cakes all served in great surroundings.

“Another fine break”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I have been to this establishment a couple of times now.once for coffee only,which is the best way to get a feel for somewhere before you commit for a meal.and then for toastie.service is always prompt as you order and pay at the counter then your order is brought to you afterwards.there appears to be a £10 min transaction on card payment but for two coffees and a scone this was waved.there is a lively mix of customers...young families...singles senior people.beware of sitting either end of the shop near to the doors as the populace of scarborough seem unacustomed to shutting doors behind them.the food is tasty and well presented and findung seats always seems a task at weekends.note the toilets are downstairs and the stairwell located tight in the far cirner if the middle room and the loos themselves rather small so not very good for those less mobile

“Really great place”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We have made numerous visits to Boddy's, and have never had a bad experience. Its off the main pedestrian precinct along Bar Street. It provides cakes, light bites and full meals. We have so far gone for the cakes and light bites. The quiche being a particular favourite. Food is well prepared, presented and of good quality. Prices are average for this type of above average cafe. Its clean and well staffed, so waiting for service is never a problem. It just seems to be a cut above the other Scarborough Cafe's.

“Refreshing”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

What a refreshing experience to visit a cafeteria which serves good food and has extremely efficient staff. My wife and I walked in to the cafe at approx 12.30 pm Friday 19 Oct. There was a queue at the counter and most of the tables were full. My wife went to bag a table and I joined the end of the queue. It was not long before I was being served and as soon as my food order was taken the assistant said that she would pass this straight to the kitchen, which she did. She immediately came back and took my order for tea/coffee. I paid the bill and took the drinks to the table and within a couple of minutes the food was brought to the table. I noticed that the tables were being cleared and wiped very quickly and all the staff seemed to be working very well as a team. Excellent efficiency. Well done to the staff.

“Lovely cafe in the heart of Scarborough”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

This cafe is an absolute must on a visit to Scarborough. Lovely food, well presented and delicious with charming efficient staff in a spotlessly clean environment. We visited twice, you must try the lemon meringue pie!
