Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I highly recommend Beckett's on Skinner Street. Great vegan options and very friendly service. Lovely homemade soups and vegan cake!

We loved it and so did our 2 dogs, Stanley and Cooper. Whilst other placed might be a tad cheaper you get what you pay both in terms of food and the customer service. Excellent in all departments, we will be back.

A great cooked breakfast and flat white coffee. Lovely service and the place looks great. Some interesting cakes on display. The menu has changed quite a bit with the new owners. Will definitely go back. Thanks .

Great coffee and the side salad with lunch was lovely. But such a shame the amazing paninis that Becketts was famous for seemed to have gone. The toastie I had was not great seemed to have lots of tomato purée in it. Wouldn’t order it...again. Please bring back the old paninis!More

1st time in with either new staff or new owners. Coffee so hot it burned my tongue and lips - no permanent damage will be okay again within a week! Was given some cold milk to cool it down (which I asked for). Scone was...like a cheap shop bought scone. Think need to invest in a milk thermometer! £6 - photo below, staff had no idea what I was talking about so not seasoned baristas or coffee drinkers! No sandwiches (were going to have as machine had broken).More

We went for breakfast on two mornings while attending the Levitation electronica music festival. The range of vegan and vegetarian food was substantial and my wife had the meat option on a cooked breakfast and sausage and egg sandwich over the two days. Really attentive...staff, friendly and the food was top notch. I usually visit Whitby once a year and this is a must visit for a cooked breakfast option. Recommended but gets very busy due to the popularity of the place.More

Went for lunch, arrived at 2.05pm and we were told they don't serve hot food after 2pm. We were famished. Just didn't feel the same welcome we used to enjoy and funnily enough it was the first time in 11 years our old dog didn't...stand at the door waiting to get in. Disappointing that they wouldn't accommodate us, clearly trade must be good. won't go again where we're not welcome.More

It was a Wednesday and this cafe seemed to be one of the very few open. Three of us had their soups, coconut and lentil; and tomato and lentil. They were very substantial thick bowls of what was more like dhal than a soup, and...very tasty.More

The menu is not extensive but all the options are top notch! We had vegan spiced coconut and lentil soup and every mouthful was a dream!!! It was dog friendly too and they provided towels for the dogs to dry their paws on but we...used them to settle the dogs who are used to lying on blankets, the dogs felt comfortable and settled straight away and soon dozed off to sleep.More

We searched out Becketts on the strength of its Tripadvisor reviews, and we were so impressed from now on it shall be our cafe of choice when we visit Whitby. Our americano and cappuccino coffees were both good, and the sticky chocolate and cherry cake...absolutely delicious. Our puppy settled down very happily, the service was very friendly, the surroundings interesting and the prices very fair. Thank you to all concerned. We are sure to return.More

If I don’t have time to sit in I will always nip in for a slice of takeaway cake. Amazing. Tried something new this time with raspberry and white choc cake - Delicious. The servings will do two if you can resist.

A lovely local café with pleasant, friendly staff. As well as a coffee each, I had an excellent 'beckanini', then me and my wife each had a massive wedge of cake each. Neither of us are big cake fans, but they were deliciously moreish and...we could have easily eaten another. Dangerously good. We're regulars in Whitby and eaten and enjoy a coffee there every time.More
