Absolutely without doubt the best place for lunch in Scarborough. A varied and tasty selection of food, from light bites to delicious specials all at most reasonable prices. There's always a tempting array of cakes on offer too and all served in congenial and stylish surroundings. Be prepared to wait for up to 20 mins for a seat at busy... More

Came here for lunch once and returned for the following three days and a few times after too! Everything I have tried so far has been delightful, just like the service. Only slight improvement could be a card machine and an expanded washroom as there is currently only one toilet for which a queue builds fairly quickly at busy times;... More

As always the food was superb and the amazing staff exceeded even their high levels - we had a little one with us who was a little under the weather - on a busy day they still found time to tempt and spoil one of their youngest visitors.

I visited Eat Me Cafe yesterday for the first time and completely by chance. Tuck away behind the SJT Eat Me Cafe was nearly full just after 3pm on a cold January afternoon which was a good sign. My friend and I were stopping by for Coffee and Cake but I took the opportunity to sneak a peek at other... More

Made my first visit today with friends and it did not disappoint! Panko chicken and Eat me's own take on the ceaser salads were lush! The chips were honestly the best I have tasted in a long time! Had a slight wait but as an apology for this a couple of items were deducted from the bill which we thought... 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!
