Lovely coffee, excellent ice cream, frindly helpful staff and the best view in Whitby, add great value and you can't do much better. I can't recommend this little gem highly enough.....it blinds the usual franchised chains.

We visited in January and was delighted to see Clara's open. Had a lovely coffee jyst what we needed to warm up on a cold day. Great service and love their one way system. We will be back on a warmer day so we can sit down and enjoy the views for a bit longer.

We had been walking around Whitby and fancied a coffee/hot chocolate - spotted this little place and could sit outside so gave it a try and was very pleased. The views are nice over the sea and the seating area is nicely sheltered.

Walking from the center to our B&B we came across Clara's and saw it was still open. So we stopped and had a wonderful cup of coffee while the night was sliding in. Such a nice place at that time of the day!

We stayed in Whitby for one day and went to Clara's 4 times. It was right across the street from our hotel and at the top of the beach. The hours were prefect (9am-8pm).

Situated on the cliff top, commands superb views of the coastline and the town of Whitby with, of course, the abbey ruins. We were staying at The Royal Hotel and Clara's was just a pleasant stroll away. Immaculate in its presentation, well stocked for ice creams, tea, coffee and light snacks. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. The prices... More
