We went in for a hot drink out of the cold rain to find the cafe almost full. We managed to get a seat and were served fairly quickly. Coffee fairly average but acceptable. We didn't eat there but what we saw was good portions of food. Quite a wide menu choice with some seating outside.

Came upon this place after completing Redcar parkrun on a cold and windy day. Received a really warm welcome and had a delicious breakfast and piping hot cappuccino put in front of me within minutes. Thank you everyone. You have made my morning

A welcoming cafe close to the sea. Good choice of snacks, cakes and beverages at a very reasonable price. Very popular at all times of the year.

Approached the cafe, I asked if it was ok to take the dog in, a member of staff snapped 'no' and pushed past me. Unbelievably rude! Lots of outdoor seating, some of which is undercover, so there is some logic to them not allowing dogs inside but aside from training their staff to communicate properly with their customers, they need...

Lovely little cafe looking over the beach at the southern end of Redcar. The views are beautiful from the cafe looking over the beach and out to sea. There are a few tables inside and ample seating outside around the edge of the cafe. Food is well priced, the servings are generous and the food reasonable. They have some lovely... More

When I first started going here after its rebuild it was a place to go back to, not any more. The quality has dropped significantly, staff good do with some training on how to be more friendly. The salad was one leaf from the Lettice and it hadn't been shredded and there was little of it. Unfortunately the place has... More

I have had numerous meals in this cafe and think they do one of the best jumbo breakfasts going. 5* hygiene/cleanliness rating too! The cafe is set on the grass above the beach and has fantastic sea views all the way to Saltburn. Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Highly recommended.
