After a brisk stroll down to the village and along the beach we decided to pop in for breakfast. 2 of us decided on bacon baps and the other 2 sausage baps. The lady working there was warm and friendly and when breakfast was served it was lovely, the baps toasted and the meat juicy and tasty. The cakes looked... More

A delightful little café, popular with both locals and tourists. Not much room to sit inside only 4 tables available but more seating is available outside. We had two large coffee's, a homemade scone and a generous slice of homemade cobble cake with cream costing around £10 which isn't excessive in my opinion. The staff were efficient and really friendly.... More

A weekday visit to Staithes and a lovely hot, sunny day on the beach. The cafe was very busy so we ordered three takeaway sandwiches and a couple of soft drinks. The sandwiches were freshly prepared and very tasty, but the bill for £17 was very expensive for what it was. Next time we're planning a visit to Staithes I'll... More

Friendly service, very tasty cake. £15 for two teas, one coffee and three slices of (very delicious) cake is expensive in my book. I guess the season is quite short.

We walked in and said hello to the woman at the till. She completely blanked us and carried on talking to her friend. When we said hello again she said "what do you want?". She was unfriendly, unhelpful and rolled her eyes when I couldn't decide what to order. My mum was paying but if it had been me, I... More

Really bad weather for our Spring Bank week away,but places like this make it worthwhile. Fantastic local cakes especially the Coble cake - so tempting. Not bad prices - just a shame we were too cold to sit outside

After walking what seemed to be 100 miles along the Cleveland Way from Hinderwell, we were in need of sustenance! We received a lovely welcome and ordered two Cappuccinos which were delicious and a large piece of Coble Cake with cream (for my husband of course!). It was gorgeous and I wished I had ordered another piece for myself! The... More
