Scarborough isn’t short of cafés, but there’s a reason why queues are a fixture outside this one. Eat Me is a cool, funky space done out with lashings of kitsch – Tretchikoff prints on the walls, episodes of Round the Horne piped through the loos and Lyle’s Golden Syrup tins containing cutlery on the slightly scruffy, communal tables. The menu is a whistle-stop tour, starting in Scotland (the owner’s birthplace) with the likes of Shetland pie – a superbly deep, pastry-clad beauty served with mushy peas and proper gravy. Jump a plane to Japan for some piping hot, fragrant ramen noodles and back to Blighty for a ‘tin plate lunch’ – brown rice topped with char-grilled chicken, served on one of those 50s white tin plates edged in blue. Very Call the Midwife. Unlicensed, so BYO – and some cash (no cards).
