Very tasty snacks, eg Halloumi burgers, etc. Tends to be a bread-based selection, but nicely presented, in a friendly funky environment.

After reviewing this café some months ago we decided to try it once again when in Scarborough, hoping for improvement. See my previous review and reviews of other local cafes. The service was good, we were only kept waiting very briefly for our table and the welcome and service was friendly and efficient. We think that the problem is that... More

The cafe is open during the day, then again in the evenings when we had a pre-theatre dinner. The surroundings are very industrial with an eclectic mix of decorative items. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful - we felt well-attended but were also given plenty of time to enjoy our food without unnecessary interruptions. We had a delicious... More

You know those BBC dramas - a heavy, enthralling opening scene, followed by 45 minutes of second guessing and confusion before the ending grips you, but just enough so you tune in the following week? Good, well that's Eat Me Cafe to a T. Check the menu online and you'll fall in love. It's a wacky mix of Thai with... More

In all honesty, I've never been to this place, and didn't really know it existed, but found it on TripAdvisor whilst reviewing another cafe in Scarborough. I always have a little read of any comments where a business is rated 'terrible' and found the replies to the ones on here, awesome. Somehow, those 9 people clearly thought their opinions which...

Was introduced to this fabulous, quirky, retro themed cafe by our son in 2015 and each time we meet for a catch up, we always call in to here for a meal. The ambience, food and members of staff are all outstanding. The staff greet you with a lovely smile and despite the fact that most of the time, they... More

Eat Me Cafe sits quietly in a backstreet of Scarborough behind the world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre. We offer a diverse multicultural menu, serving hand-packed burgers, Japanese Ramen, Shetland Pie, Thai Curries.... And much much more. 95% Of our food is made in-house from scratch. Our wide range of cakes changes daily. We serve our own much loved blend of coffee, fair trade certified and expertly roasted by The Heavenly Coffee Company and this can't be found anywhere else. All our food is cooked to order, and at busy times there may be a delay. Our chips are skin on for goodness and seasoned with Eat Me's own blend seasoning. We only use Butter on our breads and please be aware that Our Kitchen contains nuts, both kinds. If you have special dietary requirements please let us know and we will try to accommodate. We always have dairy free butter alternatives and soya milk on request, as well as Gluten Free bread for those sandwich requirements. Also, during the day when busy you may be asked to share a table, you never know who you might meet. We love Yorkshire and Scarborough and were so proud to receive The Good Food Guide Cafe of the Year 2014 award and be in the guide again for 2015. We embrace our quirkiness, bringing a smile to our customers faces from the moment they walk in! Finally if you are in a rush for the theatre, the train or collecting the kids please let us know, we will do all we humanly can!
