Decent sized town centre cafe. Modern, well done out with a good selection of food and drinks. Would recommend the scones and the cherry pie. Nice place for lunch or a snack at any time of day. Friendly service. Will be back next time we are in town.

Boddy's Cafe in the heart of Scarborough on Bar Street in the pedestrian area. The cafe has been open since 1984 but the Boddy Family have been catering since 1962 just celebrating 50 years in the business.Boddys uses only local suppliers for all there food and everything bar bread and teacakes are made on the premises which we think is quite rare these days.We pride ourselves on our fast efficient and friendly service.Why not come and sample some of our home made food and cakes all served in great surroundings.
