We found the food not very inspiring slow service and not very hot. Did not find the owner very friendly and quite abrupt. Would not return or recommend

I have been using this cafe each time I visit Scarborough for over 10 years. The breakfasts are always very good and excellent value for money. Sometimes we have to wait a short while if they are busy but that is to be expected when wanting a freshly cooked breakfast. The staff are always pleasant and friendly, they are also... More

Having visited this morning, we found ourselves in a queue for food, not bad in itself and I don't have a problem waiting my turn.however, after 15 minutes or so I questioned a server as to how long it would be only to be met with a curt response which was mirrored by who I assume was the owner.we asked...

A great breakfast here, I think they will cook whatever you want which is really good. I had a poached egg on toast which was cooked perfectly and really good latte, my husband had cheese on toast with bacon, which he enjoyed and a vanilla milk shake. It's difficult to get a vanilla one anywhere really. Would use again if... More

This little cafe was stumbled upon by chance as our usual place to eat had stopped being dog friendly (The Coffee Bean) .Although North Bay didn't appear our usual kind of place to eat I must say it turned out to be great value and really decent food and probably the best latte that I have had anywhere (I've had...

During my Childhood I'd been in this cafe many many times and so during a recent visit to Scarborough was surprised to see it still in business. The cafe serves traditional English food, some with a twist. Portions are ample but not overwhelming and the service is good. The surroundings haven't really changed much over the years but are comfortable... More

I first walked into North Bay cafe 10 years ago. I wondered how a cafe slightly off the beaten track was so popular. I realised many of the customers were local. That's a good rule of thumb in my opinion that it's a good place. So in brief, the breakfast is good and great value. The roast beef is good... More
