Come here on a daily basis (work brings me to the pier) and normally only get a takeaway hot drink, however the service is second to none, and on the odd occasion I do stretch to food, the breakfasts are really nice if not slightly pricey as with the fish & chips. Recommended!

I thought this would be a nice place for breakfast. I thought it might be a greasy spoon, but I thought it would be ok, nevertheless. Upon walking in we weren't exactly greeted with the warmest of welcomes. You can tell this place is for locals and as guests we didn't exactly feel welcomed. Trying to decide what to have... More

What is not to love about Harbour View Cafe, a warm welcome & your fish & chips cooked fresh to order. I liken it to a truckers or Bikers cafe but for fish & chips lovers, nothing fancy but great quality food at a great price. Two of us had fish chips mushy peas bread & butter and a mug... More

I've walked past this place so many times!!! What a shame! Their fish and chips have to be the best I've eaten in Scarborough. This will definitely be the place we go for fish and chips whenever we visit. Fantastically fresh, awesome food!!!

Visited on a day out in Scarborough because of good reviews. Had a deal of Fish & Chips, Mushy Peas & Bread & Butter for two. Fish was nice but I think the chips had been reheated as they were hard on the outside. We also had to wait a long time for the fish to be cooked & served.... More
