The Magpie Café has a long association with fishing and the shipping industry. It was built in 1750 as a Merchants House and during its history was owned by a member of the Scoresby whaling family and was for a time the pilotage where the pilots would wait for orders to bring vessels into the harbour.

The building later became Harrowings shipping office and it is from that time the magpie ghost albert is reputed to have originated. The premises were converted into a café in approximately 1939.
