Classic Cafes
iReportage Special: Harbour Bar, Sandside, Scarborough

Famed for serving some of the best ice cream in the country, Giulian Alonzi's Harbour Bar in Sandside, Scarborough is almost unaltered since opening in 1945. With decor described by The Times as, "a sunburst of yellow and white, a banana split recreated in Formica" the walls are lined with mirrors and slogans 'Get your vitamins the easy way', 'Eat ice cream every day.'" The Alonzi's settled in Scarborough in 1896 and the old milk bar is thriving. Says Giulian: "We're busy all winter here. In the summer, people come to enjoy themselves. In winter, they come to enjoy the place."
