“Our favourite café in staithes”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

When in staithes we make a beeline for this cafe. The bacon and brie rolls are absolutely fantastic. We've sat inside and outside this cafe in all weathers luckily this last occasion was in glorious sunshine. A real mid morning treat.

“Hard to decide.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Staithes is a lovely old fishing village, but would we visit as often if it didn't have this great café? Friendly staff, well cooked food, creamy scrambled eggs, good bacon and brie sandwich. The difficult part is deciding whether to have the lush Coble cake, or the delicious coffee and walnut, both served warm with cream. Great view of the harbour. We visit this café often and are never disappointed.

“Cute cafe”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend came for an ice-cream, prior to coming in we saw the beacon farm van parked down the road. I knew this cafe existed as I live in hinderwell and I wanted to support a local shop over a parked van! I had cinder toffee and my boyfriend had mint choc chip, both delicious and well portioned. The shop was small but we were served quickly and sat out in the sunshine so it didn't bother us, will pop in for a coffee/ice cream again sometime

“Microwave food”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Thought we would try the breakfast
DRIED eggs out if the microwave, bacon like two bits of string and i don't mind paying for it but not microwaved food. Told the women about it got the worst look back and she was very rude. Never going 2 use this place again the cafe at the top 10/19.

“Lovely cafe”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Lovely cafe for a hot drink and a delicious home made cake. Fast friendly service. Lovely atmosphere. Old fashioned sweetie selection a bonus. Too cold to sit out but would be lovely to sit and take in the view in warmer weather.
