I love this place. I was in Scarborough, after shops had closed and was looking for an evening meal that wasn't in a pub. I ordered and was served within 10 mins. I chose a window seat which overlooked the sea and had a really lovely relaxed meal. I have visited before with my husband who loves the coffee...some say... More

Whatever the weather, the Watermark, on Scarborough's Royal Albert Drive, is a great place to visit for a meal, snack, drink, music etc. The view is amazing. We've been when it's been snowing and cold; when there is a sea fret, rain and in the sunshine. The welcome is great no matter what and the food, freshly prepared, is a... More

Great views of the North Sea. Eating inside and out. Very popular and well worth a visit. Very good selection of simple and reasonably priced meals and snacks.

It's just such a nice relaxed place to go. The music evenings are great. Lovely cakes - many of them made with gluten-free flour, which is a big plus for many - the ingredients are listed on the counter. This is so thoughtful. And if you're lucky, you can watch the waves crashing in while you eat!

Great setting overlooking North Bay. The staff here really put in the hard yards - opens at 6am until 7pm. Wonderful homemade cakes at the counter and local produce to buy inside. But best of all are the charming staff - friendly, courteous and more than helpful. People like this deserve to do well and these independent small businesses need... More

We've had breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea here at various times of the year, good weather or bad, and you really cannot visit Scarborough without at least one visit to the Watermark. Fresh produce, great staff, excellent service. It's only a beachside cafe but really it can't be beaten !

The Watermark Cafe doesn't look much from the outside - but the quality of the food and the tea and coffee is well worth stopping for. The owners pride themselves on their commitment to local produce - organic if possible - and the cafe is always busy, even in winter. We haven't been able to stop for the music events,... More
