Roaring fire on a cold day in Whitby but a lovely welcome and the type of decor I love. Not our first visit and certainly not our last. Great area with sofas and now an outdoor area.More

Visited this week for lunch. Nice relaxed atmosphere, welcoming staff and quirky but nice decor. Food was a little plainer than I expected but still very good with no complaints.

Mademoiselles is a French Style cafe bistro with a cozy, quirky ImaGinarium, a Cellar Bar & pretty courtyard. We are open 5 days a week, 10.30-17.00 Tuesday & 10.30-22.30 Wednesday. We offer a simple supper menu on Wednesdays, often with a musician from 7pm. Thursday, Friday & Saturday 10.30-23.00 When we offer a 2 & 3 course set menu serving from 6.30 -8.45pm. Great wine list & amazing Gin menu! The bistro is elegantly styled, in relaxing, comfortable surroundings. Although we don't allow dogs in the bistro we have a courtyard where they would be most welcome! Our food is French & rustic in style. Our menu is small & has been carefully chosen so that there is something for everyone. We also have great vegetarian & vegan choices on offer. As we are Fully licensed, the bistro, Gin room, courtyard & cellar bar are open just for drinks. Our cellar bar & courtyard are proving very popular for group bookings with various platters & nibbles being a great choice. Reservations taken by phone
