“A jewel”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

This is probably the most unpretentious eating place that I have ever eaten in but it is a real gem! The staff are lovely, the food is freshly cooked and really high quality, the portions are splendid and it's all as cheap as......er...chips.

Talking of chips, the fish and chips are magic and probably amongst the best on sale anywhere on Scarborough seafront – if not the absolute best.

Downsides – although the food is great, it really is a pretty basic café so don't expect fancy service and sophisticated cuisine. It can be quite noisy and, because of the proximity to the kitchen, clothes come out smelling of cooking. Oh but what cooking!

“Fantastic! Do not miss the breakfast. ”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

We visited this cafe on the back of the excellent reviews it receives.

Such a warm welcome when we arrived. The two ladies behind the counter were charming.

We opted for the "Big Breakfast" at £6.75. It was out of this world. Combined with the views, this is a place not to be missed.

I will be back at lunchtime to sample the fish and chips which I hear are superb.

“Great for breakfast”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

They open at 6am. A nicer welcome from the staff or regulars would be hard to imagine. We had the standard breakfast. Bacon a little too salty, sausages not the gourmet variety but everything cooked perfectly. A little gem of a place.
