I have been a customer on various visits to Whitby over the last 10 years. I have always had good value with home made cakes, experienced and professional staff. This Coffee house is out of the ordinary, yet covers all ages.

Unfortunately our re-visit to Sherlock's was not as good as the first visit. Still a nice place to enjoy a beverage with unusual interior. The Staff are friendly and efficient so no complaints on that score. The coffee on our return visit was decidedly poor,...More

Great place to have coffee - quirky interior decoration - lots of nooks and crannies. Have been many times. Dog friendly too.

We stopped in here for a coffee but ended up getting food as well since it looked so lovely. The cafe is so cozy and you are made to feel very welcome. The food tasted as good as it looked and the coffee was amazing!

For good lunch food followed by delicious cake in an atmospheric venue you can't beat this cafe. It can be busy but staff can tell you where seats are - the little snug at the back was a great spot. Be aware that cash only!

This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.
