Built in the 1930s, in Art Deco style this is surely one of Whitley Bay's greatest treasures. The ice cream sundaes are absolutely gorgeous

It's like stepping back in time going into a 1950/60 seaside cafe..It's clean and although there is some up to date snacks you can still get old time favourites

I have just enjoyed with worlds best banana split. The fruit was fresh and the ice cream creamy with strawberry drizzled over it. A meal in itself that should be priced double than its modest cost. The staff maintain the highest standards of food hygiene...More

A proper seaside cafe on the promenade. A small amount of car park spaces but u need to pay. Lovely views of the sea, sand and light house. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and even Horlicks is sold here. Ice cream, bacon sandwiches and cream cakes...More

This is a really nice old fashioned seaside cafe. All the usual fare on sale and not a bad price. Ice cream hatch too.

Old fashioned sea side cafe right on the sea front at Whitley Bay and well behaved dogs welcomed inside too! Just right for a snack after braving the cold North Sea waters

They were open at Christmas and since then. Have you looked at their signs, maybe they are just taking a well earned holiday or the weather has been too bad for them to safely open up
