Our aim is to create an atmosphere that is vibrant yet minimal, exciting yet relaxing; a perfect place to eat, drink and buy art and small gifts in a range of styles and media. We are the original 'free wifi' venue in Whitby, great connection speeds and a 'can do' helpful staff.

Called in to the art cafe in Whitby for a spot of lunch on a very hot busy day in summer. Were were welcomed when we arrived and our order was taken straight away. Nothing was a bother, I asked for a half portion as I cannot eat very much and was told I could have anything I wanted. We could also make changes to what we ordered, missing the things out you don't like and adding in extras. The owners were very friendly and cheerful. Drinks arrived very swiftly and we sat listening to soft jazz melodies while waiting for our food. Food was all prepared on ordering. Food was really tasty and very well presented and we didn't have to wait long for it to arrive. Lovely atmosphere, light and airy cafe with views into the gallery. Highly recommend a visit. So good we might even have to go back later for coffee and cake!

Absolutely wonderful place for lunch. I visited with my parents and as vegetarians we found the choice of dishes really excellent. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and nothing was too much trouble. The artwork adds to the ambiance of the place; I came away truly inspired!
