Great view of the beach and Lifeboat House, generous breakfasts and sandwiches, good tea and coffee and pretty good milk shakes too. Traditional and friendly.

We have now tried most of the menu here between us....homemade burgers, paninis, sandwiches, scones and a great selection of homemade cakes. All are really good, always fresh and tasty. There is nowhere to equal it in Scarborough. We thoroughly recommend it!

I had the small breakfast which was perfect cooked for you so really piping hot. Hubby had the large and said he would have been happy with the smaller one. Served with a wide range of drinks. Would recommend.

After a walk round the Marine Drive we were wandering up Eastborough looking for a quiet cup of coffee away from the busy Foreshore when we chanced on Cafe View. What a stroke of good fortune. Excellent coffee and cake but above all a tremendous view which does entice you to linger longer. Recommended.

We only popped in for a cup of tea although the cakes looked good. A good sized pot with extra water was provided. Others were eating cooked breakfast which looked good though a better extractor fan would be useful! Very friendly and welcoming with binoculars to look out to sea with.

We visit cafe view on a regular basis, and have noticed more and more the overwhelming smell of hot fat, which makes our clothes smell for days after the visit. Not sure why this should be so, usually kitchens have extractor fans to take away the cooking smells. The food is excellent , as are the staff. But maybe a... More

We called into Café View after a walk round Marine Drive. Excellent coffee and a lovely view of South Bay on a winter morning. People next to us were eating breakfast, looked very nice and they were happy. Friendly, welcoming an efficient service. Worth a visit.
