Eat Me Cafe update

One of Scarborough’s most popular cafés, Eat Me Café, is partnering with the town’s Stephen Joseph Theatre until the end of February.

The award-winning café, named as a Local Gem in The Good Food Guide every year between 2015 and 2020, has been operating from the first floor bar lounge at the world famous theatre since the beginning of August in a ‘pop-up’, Eat Me @ The SJT, which has proved hugely popular with both regulars and new diners alike.

Now, the arrangement has been extended until 28 Feburary with the café opening from 10.30am to 6.30pm on Mondays to Wednesdays, and from 10.30am to 7.30pm on Thursdays to Saturdays.


Owners Martyn Hyde and Stephen Dinardo say: “We’re thrilled to confirm that we’ll be in residence at the SJT for another six months.

“Space at our premises on Hanover Road is quite tight, so for the safety of our staff and customers, we wanted a temporary space where we can provide much greater social distancing.

“We have a long-standing and close friendship with the SJT, and they’re just across the road: their spacious first-floor bar lounge has proved to be a perfect space for us over the last month.

“Keep an eye out for special deals linked with cinema and theatre productions at the SJT, and follow our social media for exclusives!”


The SJT’s Executive Director, Caroline Routh, says: "Eat Me Café has been a brilliant supporter of the SJT for many years now. We're absolutely delighted to welcome Martyn, Stephen and their fantastic team to the theatre in a partnership that we hope will prove fruitful for both of us." 

The cinema at the SJT re-opened in late August, and the theatre has just announced an autumn season of both live and digital shows, starting on 1 October – details will be on the SJT website shortly: www.sjt.uk.com

Both Eat Me @ The SJT and the Stephen Joseph Theatre are operating in accordance with current legislation and guidelines, and both have been awarded the VisitEngland ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard and supporting mark.
