The only trouble it is so busy...... BUT that is of course a GOOD reason, for liking it if you come to think about it. AND one good thing is that they have a such a GOOD range of teas coffees a herb teas. AND usually they are fair trade & organic when possible. Inside & Outside seating.

Enjoyed a short break in Scarborough late September. Decided to go down to Watermark for the famous cooked breakfast. It was , as always, first class. Excellent ingredients and well cooked. It might not be the cheapest breakfast in Scarborough but it has to be one of the best! Staff are excellent and the view of the sea a bonus.... More

What a little gem this place is - delicious quality food, served by friendly, efficient staff. I had a large bowl of tomato and basil soup served with brown bread - there were other options that day including beet root served with creme fraiche. My husband had a bacon sandwich with a bowl of excellent chips. Coffees were good also.... More

Great location on Scarborough North Bay. Top class coffee, workaday sandwiches and OK soup. Great unintentioned entertainment from hyperactive chap behind the counter. Rather pricey for ordinary fare.

Yes I agree with a previous review that its not much to look at from the outside, however, once inside the cafe is much more pleasing. The staff were polite, the coffee and cakes (some gluten free) were delicious. Every table was full inside and some outside.

I'm writing this sitting in the watermark cafe, because I'm that impressed with the place, also because of the free wifi! We stopped in for lunch simply because it was the closest place to where we parked. We weren't expecting much: a standard seafront greasy spoon with a menu stuck in the 70s, but what we got was some expertly... More

Best breakfast in Scarborough by a mile, generous portions cooked well...not a bad price either. The soups are excellent too.

We were attracted by the claims written on the wall, home grown produce, locally sourced, local farm etc.. I ordered a Mixed Grill, my wife had a Jacket potato. The food was at best, average, the chips however were inedible,.. Obviously frozen oven chips which tasted awful.. Definitely not home grown! Such a shame as the surroundings were very nice,... More
