Great selection of lunchtime food, home made quiches, sandwiches and cakes & scones to die for. Very pleasant and friendly staff.

“Nice café”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We stopped for lunch in this café. The place is bright and very alive. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the service is quick. The panini bread is not the best I had unfortunately. The home made chutney is superb. I think the place could do with new upholstery on chairs and benches as they were very dirty and maybe they should try to find a better baker.

“Just a nice cafe”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Always good quality, but nothing special. They do some great cheese scones but the service can be little odd sometimes.

“Super little cafe”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

hidden away in a narrow alley between The Grand Hotel and the Brunswick centre, it is so easy to miss this excellent, busy cafe, spotless, good service, super butties and cakes with very friendly staff, a little gem.

“A Great Favourite”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We visit Scarborough for a short break twice a year, and one of the highlights is having lunch at Boddys! A wonderful place, spotlessly clean with friendly efficient staff. It can be busy, but they are very organised and you don't wait long. I love that the tables are cleared instantly as well, there is nothing worse than being faced with tables loaded with dirty dishes and leftovers. The sandwiches are freshly made and delicious, the coffee is lovely and there is a great choice of cakes, pies and scones. I would love a Boddys where we live!
