Been to this place twice now, the staff seem nice apart from when someone confronts them with an issue which they seem to not care about. Food is okay a little pricey (even for the seafront) could probably make it better myself. That brings me on to the cake situation. They claim that their cake is homemade by a local... More

Called here for sandwiches to take out on New Years day, there was only limited choice which was to be expected and not a problem. After ordering I noticed the girl putting an awful lot of butter onto what I thought was my sandwich so asked her to remove some. She abruptly replied it's not yours, fair enough. After a... More

I know a great place when I find one, and here's one for you that doesn't get any better. Located opposite the harbour, tremendous views of the boats coming and going, inside and outside seating area, carefully prepared food from a well stocked menu, this is the place to be. Open all year round too, I think this place gets... More

I live in Scarborough and often spend time the sea front. My new favourite place to visit for a small bite to eat and a drink is the waterfront! The staff are very attentive and are very open to individual requirements. Definitely worth a visit!

I was fortunate enough to find this little gem when I was out on the seafront. With it being a rather mild day I decided to pop in for a cosy little cuppa. I couldn't rate this place high enough ! I had just a simple latte and a ham and salad sandwich. The sandwich was excellently priced and all... More
