Third visit and as enjoyable as the previous two. So nice to have somewhere to enjoy a glass of wine and have a variety of vegan options. Food was really good, staff great and the lady with the amazing Disney tattoos was particularly friendly and helpful with vegan choices. Vegan and gluten free white chocolate and salted caramel cake was... More

First visit based on good reviews. Food average to poor. Restaurant prices but this is a cafe. Better food elsewhere in Scarborough. Toilets dark dirty, very steep stairs. Not recommeded. Stephen doesn't like negative reviews, he should listen to his customers. Please fire off one of your essays, can't wait to read it.

This cafe looked very promising. The service was polite and there was plenty of atmosphere. Unfortunately the food wasn't up to scratch. My scrambled eggs had been cooked for too long, and my wife's cheese toastie had been toasted for so long that most of the cheese had run off and the bread was as hard as rock. As she... More

Very nice falafel wrap. I did not feel rushed to leave at any point as I was on my own at a large table (I did as if they wanted me to move) when a large family arrived. Cosy, affordable and very friendly staff!

Can definitely recommend this cafe. Went to find it during a recent weekend in Scarborough after reading the reviews on here. Had to wait a short while for a table but it was worth the wait. The food was lovely and fresh and the coffee was excellent too. The staff were very friendly and made you feel like they really... More

Second visit and just as good. Busy Saturday lunchtime. Menu is full of choice. Amazing gluten free options across the board. Hubby had the sloppy dog. Son gluten free sarnie and I had a tin plate. Left feeling full to the brim and completely satisfied. Faultless. Clean, friendly staff, food fresh and tasty. Can't wait to return and try something... More

We have eaten here a few times and can't recommend it enough. the cafe can get busy so you may have to wait at peak times, but the wait is worth it. The menu offers a choice of burgers and tin plate meals and there's always a choice of specials on the board. Between us we've sampled a range across... More

This is one of my favourite places to eat in Scarborough. The food is always good and just a little bit different. The Ramen and Pho are especially good, as are the burgers and the breakfast- well everything actually! Get there early as it is always busy, and rightly so.

Eat Me Cafe sits quietly in a backstreet of Scarborough behind the world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre. We offer a diverse multicultural menu, serving hand-packed burgers, Japanese Ramen, Shetland Pie, Thai Curries.... And much much more. 95% Of our food is made in-house from scratch. Our wide range of cakes changes daily. We serve our own much loved blend of coffee, fair trade certified and expertly roasted by The Heavenly Coffee Company and this can't be found anywhere else. All our food is cooked to order, and at busy times there may be a delay. Our chips are skin on for goodness and seasoned with Eat Me's own blend seasoning. We only use Butter on our breads and please be aware that Our Kitchen contains nuts, both kinds. If you have special dietary requirements please let us know and we will try to accommodate. We always have dairy free butter alternatives and soya milk on request, as well as Gluten Free bread for those sandwich requirements. Also, during the day when busy you may be asked to share a table, you never know who you might meet. We love Yorkshire and Scarborough and were so proud to receive The Good Food Guide Cafe of the Year 2014 award and be in the guide again for 2015. We embrace our quirkiness, bringing a smile to our customers faces from the moment they walk in! Finally if you are in a rush for the theatre, the train or collecting the kids please let us know, we will do all we humanly can!
