“Not very inspiring”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Disappointed by this bistro.
We asked for my daughters baguette to have no cheese as she has major problem with it (yes, its a real phobia!), but it was delivered with cheese on the bottom as it had clearly been put on to a toaster with cheese from the last bit of food that had been there.
We asked for the hot drinks to be delivered at the same time as the food - it came ten minutes before, during an interminably long wait on a very uncomplicated order.
The food itself was decidedly average.
I had to leave early but my wife raised the issue with the cheese as she left, and it was met with a mumbled "we'll tell the cook". Great. How about not charging us for the thing that was only 1/8 eaten?

“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We called for breakfast and it was very nice and came with tea or coffee and toast. The staff were friendly and we sat in the garden at the rear with our dog. It was very nice.

“too noisy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

I went last month when I had lots of errands to run. It was so noisy I couldnt hear myself think and the service was slow but the bacon sandwich was really quite nice but the coffee - not so much! It was a bit like a locals clique at that time in the morning and I felt like an outsider if I am to be really quite honest. Nothing really sinister but just wouldnt go back if I am honest.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We were looking for a nice place to eat in Filey. We came across this little gem and was highly delighted. We ordered quiche with salad and a ploughmans lunch. The food was well presented, fresh and great value for money. The service was great and the cafe extremely clean and well kept. £13.80 for 2 people including drinks - fantastic value!! We can't wait to come back when we're next in Filey. Keep it up!
