Friendly gift shop and cafe with excellent coffees and teas, and amazing home made cakes. We went for afternoon tea, for which there was a good choice of quality brews, very well presented. We enjoyed the courgette, lemon and pistacchio cake, a real find. But...More

Have visited this place many times and am astounded how many different cakes are on offer. Very good staff who make you feel welcomed. Good outside seating area where dogs are welcomed.

Perfect little place to stop for coffee and cake in the summer when you can sit outside. Wouldn’t go there any other time as very small inside.

This place looks lovely from the outside and advertises coffee, cakes and other gorgeous things ! We went along at 1430 on a Thursday. Firstly there are only 2 tables inside so you have to be incredibly lucky to get a table. We were going...More

We called about 3:30 on a cool winter's afternoon & received a cheery welcome. They have the widest range of leaf teas in the area. I enjoyed the delicious darjeeling. Carrot cake was good as well. A visit to the toilet is educational (see photos)

Really lovely little shop and cafe area. We recently visited while staying in Craster. The donkey and pig in the field out the back are super friendly. A great selection of gifts and local goods.

Nice cakes and coffee served in a craft shop or outside in the courtyard. Coffee and tea are very good, and some very nice cake. Service is friendly and quick. We arrived late in the afternoon, but there was still plenty to eat

This beautifully converted barn just serves coffee, tea and cakes as it also sells lovely and interesting goods. The tea was made properly with tea leaves, which I haven't seen for ages and was lovely. The cakes were all made with roots - I had...More

Another week of holiday where we visited Eleanor's Byre on 3 occasions. Coffee is still excellent, cake (including interesting flavours) still great. Very enjoyable. As well as the coffee and cakes, the shop has an interesting stock of goods/mementos/gifts. Not the average sort of seaside...More
