Called in here for cup of tea and snacks and we were not disappointed. There is outside seating right on the sea front. The staff were friendly. It was clean and the tea and toast was lovely £7.40 for two teas and two toast.

We stopped here to have an Orange Marmalade ice cream and a Knickerbocker Glory. Both were excellent.

Asked if we could use the cafe as a backdrop for a photo shoot as we loved the American diner style booths. We visit regularly on visits to Saltburn beach for breakfast ice creams and hot drinks. Can recommend.
