Cheap Things to Do In Whitby With Kids

Every parent knows the feeling of dread when they arrive for a day out and see the £ sign everywhere, but a day out with kids in Whitby doesn’t have to be expensive. 

Lovely little find

Found this place by accident, and it’s a lovely little place. The staff were so friendly, chatty and really made us feel at home, great coffee too – roasted in Robin Hoods Bay by all accounts. The food was well cooked and huge portions, really wanted to try their homemade scones which looked amazing, but just couldn’t fit any more in! Maybe next time.


June 2021, TripAdvisor Review

Thank you to Hetty & Betty for a fabulous afternoon tea. Arrived perfectly in time for lunch and we are both amazed at much fab cakes we have left over, which I’m sure will have vanished by tea time.

Highly recommend these guys and we’ll definitely be paying them a visit when we are allowed .

Exceptional Afternoon Tea

Hetty and Betty cafe did a fabulous afternoon tea for our Anniversary. Service and staff were lovely, helpful polite and quick service.

Cafe was exceptionally clean and organised, during these trying times. But still felt a relaxing atmosphere.

The food was impeccable, very fresh, a good amount, with a lot of care and thought gone into unique presentation.

We had the spooky afternoon tea, themed for Halloween weekend.

We will happily return again to try more of their themed teas.
