Description: Boddy's Cafe in the heart of Scarborough on Bar Street in the pedestrian area. The cafe has been open since 1984 but the Boddy Family have been catering since 1962 just celebrating 50 years in the business.Boddys uses only local suppliers for all there food and everything bar bread and teacakes are made on the premises which we think is quite rare these days.We pride ourselves on our fast efficient and friendly service.Why not come and sample some of our home made food and cakes all served in great surroundings.

“Best coffee in Scarborough? Could be..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Cafe is spotlessly clean, staff are friendly and attentive and prices excellent. It is also located on Bar Street which has some original and quirky shops.

Most importantly the coffee and scones that we had were first class. So good that I had to have a second large Cappuccino which kept me alert all day for watching the air displays.

It really is as good as other reviews say and is definitely worth a visit.

“Don't go if on a diet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Wow what great cakes and sweet and savoury pastries. Even a toastie comes with salad and home made mayo that you can now buy jars of yum yum. Staff are friendly, food is delivered swiftly and all tables are cleared and cleaned as soon as you have finished

“Lovely place, lovely food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

The menu has food that they do well. So there may not be chips with the steak and kidney pie, but the pie is fantastic, though served with baked potato instead. Likewise, the fruit pie isn't available with custard. So good we went back again within the same week! Oh, and the prices are very reasonable too given how popular the place seems to be.

“First visit and will be returning :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We visited yesterday, the first time we have ever been and it was brilliant

The staff were very friendly and helpful, very clear and concise menu

plenty of space inside the cafe and with it being a nice sunny day (at that time we were there) they had the doors open as well so felt very open and nice to enjoy the fresh air

The food was very nice too, didn't try any of the cakes thought they looked delicious, maybe next time


overall would thoroughly recommend Boddy's to anyone
