Wonderful café with leather seating and calm tranquil surroundings - highly recommend their sausage baps and pots of tea! They also do a large range of gluten free food, which is wonderful and always have homemade delightful treats in their chilled cabinet!

Arrived at 3.15pm on a very quiet Friday afternoon in August to be greeted by a young lady looking at her watch and sighing whilst busying herself cling filming all left over cakes??She took great delight in telling me it was counter service only she then wanted me to have the exact change perhaps she'd already cashed up ?The blackboard...

Looked twee from the outside. Staffed by pleasant refined young ladies. Service rapid, Coffee and cakes very nice. A quiet oasis in a raucous town.

Taylor's has always been a favourite place for a decent cup of coffee and a cake or light lunch whilst shopping in Scarborough. Getting a seat was the main problem since everything was prepared and served with flair. Imagine our disappointment then when we sat down in a sparsely populated cafe at a table that had not been cleared. Gone... More

My husband and I visited this coffee shop again last week and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed our coffees and the scone with jam and cream was simply delicious. Great ambience and comfortable seating. This is becoming a favourite place to visit.

Love coming here for a drink, despite not liking coffee myself, all my friends say the coffee is top quality. I'll vouch for the hot chocolates and teas too. The cakes and good are also to a very high standard, breakfast muffins, flapjack and scones are great. It's also the only place I know that offers croissants with brie or... More

The best coffee in Scarborough and such a lovely atmosphere and a far cry from the noisy chains available. We spent a lovely quiet and peaceful morning drinking delicious coffee and browsing the books. The decor is lovely and so tranquil. A little haven !

Taylors Cafe and Books coffee shop must sell some of the best coffee in Scarborough - what a shame we discovered it [it was recommended by a local shopkeeper] on our last day. The cafes looked scummy, but we were full! Upstairs on the second floor there is a reading area and shelves full of books to read as you... More
