Over the years I’ve had quite a few breakfasts at the Stray. This was probably the best one yet (although the sausage could be greatly improved). What more could you want, a good breakfast and nice cup of tea, all at a reasonable price.

Service slow and staff not very friendly. Food average and basic. Great location for dog walking. Parking on road or public car park close by. Stunning sunsets over the horizon towards hartlepool.

The food is good and so are the prices but we had a 50 minute wait over lunchtime for our food and it is tricky to entertain small kids with empty stomachs. We had to queue for 10 mins to order - four staff on...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.
