  • OMG - I am told that is modern speak for exceptionally good which a kipper from Fortunes is.... really is. If you like kippers you wont find better. Somewhat eclectic opening hours but worth it.
  • Lovely little cafe!!! Great food, relaxing warm atmosphere & very friendly staff.
  • Absolutely fantastic. What a history behind this place. It's not only some place, it's a destination. To be fair it should be a destination for every professional chef! You won't get that product anywhere on this planet!!!!
  • Best kippers in the world! My Grandparents Mr and Mrs Furness would make a special trip every year when I holidayed with them as a child, but their love of them started when they would stay in Whitby and my late father Jim would help the current owner when they were boys.
  • If you like kippers then this is the place. The smell as you walk towards the small shop is a delight, and lingers throughout the day. Expect traditional smoked kippers wrapped in newspaper, but try the bacon too. Don't be late though, once the shop has sold out it shuts.
