What a little gem, pity not more around like this. Clean, well appointed, fantastic seating inside and out - out is shielded from the breeze by glass screens. Does great teas and coffees and is also dog friendly. Well worth a visit.

Great views of the seafront and beach. It can be a bit exposed in autumn/winter if sitting outside. The drinks are nice but a bit pricey to say they are from an automatic machine, and the cakes (bakewell tart) are pricey £3.40 a slice.

The crab sandwiches were absolutely stuffed with crab so full marks there. We both would have preferred a doorstep of bread from a fresh crusty loaf rather than the sliced we were presented with, but the amount of fresh crab meat made up for that....More

Popped into Sandside Cafe for much needed coffee after windy beach walk from Whitby. Friendly staff and great coffee in a lovely location overlooking the beach.

Such a disappointment... The area is beautiful, great beach walk, superb waves in the wind and lovely people everywhere, however this cafe just did not deliver... seafood special provided watery crab, tasteless prawns which resembled those fresh from the freezer and smoked salmon that just...More

Only seen dogs in outside seating area. With people siting at tables and queuing to order food inside there is not a lot of room for a dog inside
