“Thumbs up from the coffee snob!!!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

A week on Whitby over the regatta weekend and we decided to give this charming place a go.

The owners couldn't do enough for you, very chilled out place with lovely furniture and the cake we had was delicious!

The sign outside says something like "chalk on this board doesn't do our coffee justice" so being a self confessed coffee snob I gave the americano a go and my better half had a latte. WOW....well for a coffee lover it's a dream come true! The beat coffee I have ever tasted and my fiancée said the same about the latte!

We returned two days later with the kids who both had cake and a milkshake......they both said the milkshake was lovely, filling and tasted great.

Give this place a visit if you go to Whitby, the owners, the ambience, the cake come a close second to the coffee!!!!!!!

4 days left in Whitby......I feel another americano coming on :)

“Coffee, (gluten free) cake, lovely owners and a chic venue.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Lovely little coffee shop owned by a very passionate and charming barista.
We walked in at just after 5pm and were warmly greeted. Only found out later that they shut at 5pm, but nothing was too much trouble.
Ordered coffee and cake, both of which were excellent.
Found out after that the cake was gluten free. Not a necessity for either of us but it certainly wasn't a compromise on taste!!
Highly recommended.
