When you’ve sampled the local fish and chips, explored the streets of Whitby, and had some fun on the beach with your four-legged friend, it’s time to relax in a café and enjoy a sweet treat or a hot drink.
Here’s a selection of dog-friendly cafés in Whitby, offering delicious food and refreshments to you and a friendly welcome to your dog. Not forgetting the ultimate indulgence, Whitby offers a variety of dog-friendly cafes that serve afternoon tea.
