A DIFFERENT KIND OF AFTERNOON TEA AT FILEY BISTRO, FILEY.
15th May 2019
Filey is a neighbouring fishing town just down the coast from Scarborough, is not only small in comparison but also much quieter and less ‘touristy’. The beach spans the bay and is a lovely walk on a good day and equally, the modernised landscaped promenade offers a great view and walk.
The town doesn’t offer many high-street names, apart from the likes of big Superstores such as Morrisons and Tesco, which does lead the way for more independent businesses to thrive and showcase themselves. And it’s one such independent business I just have to share with you today. A cafe named Filey Bistro.
Filey Bistro: The cafe.
Now when it comes to eating out, I’m all about four things: Hot chocolates, caramel slices, Sunday Lunches and afternoon teas. Filey Bistro is basically, my mecca.
From the outside, it looks nothing more than a normal cafe. Even upon entering, the decor is plain and simple. Nothing to suggest that it’s any different to any other cafe in the town. However, once you know, you know.
It was though, their afternoon teas which I was originally told of and drawn to. Although their teas run throughout the year, they are also themed at Christmas and have also added a nod to their seaside location. Their afternoon teas are definitely on the different and novelty side to what you’d expect, but also keep an element of the traditional with a sandwich, of some description and scone. Everything in-between is a surprise.
I’ve visited Filey Bistro on two occasions now. Sampling their Christmas themed afternoon tea and also their day to day afternoon tea which followed a few months later and both were equally as nice. I love that their teas change and aren’t continuously the same. It shows great innovation from the team on a business level, as people, like me, just have to keep going back to try them out!
I mean, I was both in love with and fascinated by the Elf boot shaped napkin. How amazing right? I’m not going to lie though, I was definitely there for the Yorkshire pudding and gravy. (It’s the best part of Sunday lunch and Christmas dinner – may be on par with stuffing..)
Priced at just £9.95, or £12.50 if you’re in need of a prosecco, Filey Bistro’s afternoon teas are well worth a visit, occasion or not. Make sure you book in though. Afternoon teas are served via bookings only.
