“"Worth a detour"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

This cafe cum shop is a must detour from Sandsend. They sell unique items at a fraction of the price you'd pay in interior design shops. I bought a fabulous garden bench made from a tree root. My friends think it cost a fortune little do they know! I rounded off my visit with a lovely homemade cream tea and a friendly chat to the owners who really care that all visitors have an enjoyable visit. Thank you.

“Little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

What a little gem this is! Even though were only about a 20 minute drive away I'd not heard of it until a friend recommended it. So today off we went to try it out. It's wonderful, the food is scrummy. I had ciabatta with bacon, cheese and marmalade chutney ( I bought a jar of the home made chutney, it was delicious) I had a side order of wedges with a choice of two dips, my friends opted for the chicken burgers which they both said I was gorgeous. We had a two year old with us who loved his homemade sausage roll. Claire and Melanie who served us were wonderful hosts who made a fuss of all there customers making everyone welcome. I suppose it may seem a little pricey but to me it was worth every penny. We bought cakes to take home which were devine. There is also a wonderful shop with beautiful furniture for home and garden and lovely home decoration things. I will be returning

Lovely rustic place to eat with great shop - full of high quality goods that dress your house and make fantastic pressies. Food freshly made and imaginative salads full of flavour, great cakes. Just between sandsend and whitby - well worth a visit

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Probably the best scones in Whitby (well close by!) - interesting shop, and nice little (but now larger) café.
