Needed something warm and quick. We have been in here before so thought we'd try again. Ordered full English breakfast, fish chips mushy peas, fish with bread and butter, 2coffees and 1 tea. All good cooked to perfection, cuppas nice and hot. Staff very helpful and kind hearted. Will call in again when in Scarborough.

I've walked past this place so many times!!! What a shame! Their fish and chips have to be the best I've eaten in Scarborough. This will definitely be the place we go for fish and chips whenever we visit. Fantastically fresh, awesome food!!!

I love, love, love this place for breakfast when in Scarborough. The food is fab, the prices are realistic, they do the tea as weak as I ask for, and Debbie and her girls are warm and welcoming. An absolute MUST for breakfast.

We called in for fish and chips with family on a Saturday afternoon. The cafe didn't look much from the outside, but we were really glad we went in. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. The fish and chips were really tasty and nice!
