My father first told me about Boddy's 3 years ago, my wife and I have been coming ever since. Great food, fantastic service, what more do you want! Very clean, staff friendly, place renovated about 12 months ago, to my eye it was perfect before, it's perfect now. Good value with most items made on the premises, large seating area.... More

Decent sized town centre cafe. Modern, well done out with a good selection of food and drinks. Would recommend the scones and the cherry pie. Nice place for lunch or a snack at any time of day. Friendly service. Will be back next time we are in town.

Arrived in Scarborough on Monday staying at a very large hotel where the coffee is absolutely awful. Have been searching ever since for an independent coffee shop. Eureka have at last discovered good coffee, good food in pleasant surroundings, Boddy's of Bar Street cafe. Had coffee at 08.30 this morning and it was delicious. Highly recommended:-)

Have travelled to Scarborough for the last four years, and not to have at least one lunch here is unthinkable. Particularly recommended the panini and lemon meringue. All the pies and tarts are first class. Very difficult to fault.

We called in whilst waiting for someone and were far from disappointed. I had the Lemon Meringue Pie and a rather good cup of coffee, my wife chose the cream scone and a Mug of Tea, followed by another not too long after. The Lemon Meringue was huge and piled high with Meringue. My wife commentated on how Fresh the... More

Boddy's Cafe in the heart of Scarborough on Bar Street in the pedestrian area. The cafe has been open since 1984 but the Boddy Family have been catering since 1962 just celebrating 50 years in the business.Boddys uses only local suppliers for all there food and everything bar bread and teacakes are made on the premises which we think is quite rare these days.We pride ourselves on our fast efficient and friendly service.Why not come and sample some of our home made food and cakes all served in great surroundings.
