An old cafe that serves tasty home cooked food. Perfect spot to sit outside and look at view while having a cuppa and piece of cake or bacon butties. Always seem to be busy. Worth the walk.

Lovely cafe with good old fashioned baking with the most fabulous views of Scarborough Bay. It is closed in the winter months but lovely in the spring, summer & autumn.

The weather was rainy but the views from her were still good. The cafe is accessibly by footpath from above or by steps from the beach so choose carefully. I had a most delicious scone with a mug of tea.

Called in for Breakfast. They were struggling due to a partial power outage, but still managed to serve up an excellent breakfast. A traditional cafe with character and charm and friendly staff in a great location.

It is quite a walk from the top of the cliff but there is the lift. It is still a good walk from the lift and there are 2 options we have a number of steps but a strong handrail to hold onto or there is a path up to the cafe... More
