Le Cafe Jardin

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "An impromptu dinner"

Quote:
A rainy Friday afternoon saw my partner and I wondering what t do for dinner. We decided to head out and try somewhere new in Scarborough. In the past we've eaten in Le Cafe Jardin for breakfast and lunch, but during the school holidays this chic bistro style cafe is open on an evening. The menu is much the same as during the day, so there is a good selection of large and small meals to choose from, with the addition of several specials, which presumeably change quite regularly. When we arrived, the cafe was quite quiet (probably because of the wet weather), with just one family sat in the corner. This meant we had a choice of many tables and chose to sit up near the back of the cafe, away...Read More

The Roundel

Restaurant | "Step into the sixties!"

The Roundel Photo, Scarborough, England
Quote:
Named after the iconic Mods target logo, this is a new eatery in Scarborough, opening only a month or so ago, and it's far away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront. You can find this retro cafe/diner in the centre of town near the Stephen Joseph Theatre and the train station (perfect for grabbing a bite to eat before heading home). This place is open from 8.30am during the week till 5pm and has a fab breakfast menu, which I will be back to try.We arrived at lunchtime mid-week so the diner only had a few patrons and we managed to get a booth very easily. The seating is a mixture of tables, booths, a couple of sofas and a bar area in the centre, that would be handy if you were on your...Read More

Mojo's Music Cafe

Restaurant | "Get your rock on and find your mojo!"

Alongside Eat Me Cafe (reviewed in this journal) Mojos Music Cafe is one of the best cafes in Scarborough. It's laid back amosphere, music themed menu and chilled out seating area make it the perfect place to chill, relax and enjoy some top quality food. This place isn't pretentious, you'll find no airs and graces, but what you will find is a fantastically friendly local team of staff that will prepare tasty filling food. Located just a 5 minute walk from the town centre, the cafe is open Tuesday - Saturday during the day and you can get breakfast, lunch or afternoon snacks. We often go here for a breakfast roll of bacon and egg, but sometimes when we have time off we head out for lunch, w...Read More

Saba Thai Cuisine

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Thai Food.....Yummy Yummy!"

Saba Thai Cuisine Photo, Scarborough, England
Quote:
This restuarant and take-away is one of the first Thai restaurants to reach the town of Scarborough. I was very excited when it opened because I love Thai food and up until then I had had to travel to the nearest city ot get my fix. Suffice to say it didn't take me long to visit this restaurant and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. We have since visited several times and although we have booked a table I've never seen any need to if you're in a small enough party. The staff are always friendly and polite when we visit and you'll soon find yourself sat inside this modern, sleek restaurant. The lighting makes the place feel very relaxed and you'll soon be pouring over a menu trying to decide what to ...Read More

Restaurant | "Be treated like a king in this Indian restaurant!"

Quote:
Indian restuarants are pretty ubiquitous in the U.K., but finding one that is actually good can sometimes be difficult. Scarborough is like anywhere else and has it's fair share of Indian restaurants. We've tried pretty much all of them over the years, but this is the only one that we consistently go back to. I wouldn't say that we are regulars or that we are recognised. When we arrive we are greeted by a member of staff who is always all smiles. We get shown to our tables and left for a good few minutes to mull over the menus. There isn't a particular dish that I would recommend, we usually order a selection of dishes and all have a bit of each. There is plenty of choice for vegetarians, with every c...Read More

Eat Me Cafe

Restaurant | "Tasty Little Gastro Cafe"

Quote:
Eat Me Cafe is a hidden gem in Scarborough's crown, you can find it just off the main street opposite the train station. Hanover Road itself has undergone a bit of regeneration in the last year, so there are plenty of other little shops to have a look in. This gastro cafe is open Monday-Friday 10am-3pm and Saturdays 8.30am - 3pm for breakfast and lunchtime food and is also open three evenings a week for a more intimate dinner experience. I would advise arriving early because the cafe fills up quickly at lunchtime and there are only 6 tables, which means you will either have to be patient if it's full or get a takeaway. It is always worth the wait though, I have been many time since it open...Read More

ASK Italian

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Mediocre Italian Restaurant"

Quote:
When you wander around the seafront in Scarborough there are a wealth of fish and chip shops to choose from, however other food types are pretty rare. A few years ago a new modern building was put up overlooking the harbour and along with a few other bits of regeneration, it now offers a nice alternative to the ubiquitous fried food. Instead of an independent local restaurant though, we got a chain restaurant called Ask. Everyone in the town was pretty excited about a new option, as on the whole the town doesn't have that many chain restaurants as compared to bigger cities. I've eaten in this Ask a few times now, but I am going to review my most recent visit, because the chain has had a bi...Read More
