Lovely independent cafe selling excellent coffee, cake and ice-cream. They also do hot food which is very good. The ice cream is outstanding. They welcome dogs and humans get a warm welcome too. Tapas on a Friday night is worth booking in advance. Excellent quality and good wine on offer. Overlooks the harbour from the front tables.

Again - Teare wood's only got our business as the sandside bar - the home of the best Knickerbocker Glory in the world - was shut! However we four had different sundaes and they were adequate. I don't like a lot of 'out of an aerosol' cream - but these were topped with ice cream - just not as good... More

We decided to pop in Teare for a spot of cream tea. The staff are fab and the decor is cute and quirky. The cream tea was lovely, I can't recommend this place enough.

The food was excellent, and the service from the young lady that is co owner was absolutely lovely. The place is a gem. The portions are generous, and the atmosphere is great. The doggie wallpaper in the... More

This is so much more than ice cream (cherry cola, lime and coconut to name two) the cheesecake is to die for, and so are all the lovely hot food options. The homemade lemonade is scrumy and really thirst quenching. Portion size is fantastic and excellent value for money, the cafe itself is cool and different. Everywhere you look the... More

We called in twice over our weekend stay in Whitby. First time for two coffees and a scone. Coffee full flavoured and the scone was a good size and very tasty, served with butter, jam and cream. Ace! Second time we had toasted sandwiches and tea for two. Again, faultless and very reasonably priced. The staff were efficient and friendly.... More

We arrived in Whitby after a long drive and needed something to eat. The first couple of places we saw we didn't fancy, glad we held out because this place was a brilliant find. Obviously a popular place, as we were waiting to be seated a group of 4 people barged past us to grab a table, there was no... More

We decided to have a stop off for tea and cake and rest our weary feet! We chose Teare Wood cafe. It is small but was busy, so good sign. We all had a pot of tea and 2 of us chose the lime & ginger cheesecake and third one chose the hot choc fudge cake. We all enjoyed what... More

This is a lovely little cafe in Whitby. Glad we found this place when we where there. Just needed a light snack and it did just that. I had cream tea. My wife had lime and ginger cheesecake and the children had ice creams. The staff were friendly food was good and nice and clean inside. What more do you... More
