Scarborough has a range of thriving small businesses to explore. From organic, local produce to quirky vintage and retro clothing.
Aldred’s Fine Cheese
This multi-award winning cheesemonger offers a delicious selection of artisan cheeses, as well as baked treats and wood fired pizza.
Dahlia Bakery isn’t new to Scarborough (the mother ship opened a few years ago on Ramshill and has since become a magnet for for cake lovers and fans of all things baked) but it is new to the North Side.
At the town end of North Marine Road, the second Dahlia bakery is proving to every bit as good as the original.
Basically, Dahlia is a place where, if you like things hand-made, cooked to perfection and tasting amazing, you’ll feel right at home.
Whether it’s sweet or savoury, pies, panini, puds, cakes or coffees, you could close your eyes, point at random and be guaranteed to choose something fresh, beautiful and delicious.
Bread, patisserie, pork pies, quiches, breakfast sarnies, cakes, cakes and more cakes.
Prices are reasonable and the service is great … there’s nothing not to like here.
Go and see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
