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

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

It tasted as if oven baked chips not what you expect from a seaside! The portion was very measley we counted 15 chips and 6 pieces of... More

We called here recently during a walk in Scarborough, and expected better after reading the reviews. The view was lovely sat outside in the sunshine couldn't fault it, and the staff were friendly. However the menu was limited so we just had cake, my favourite cake is coffee and walnut but it was so dry that I did not enjoy... More

Met some friends for a coffee on Wednesday 14th August. Sat outside, everything lovely as always. We often eat at Watermark when we visit Scarborough. We have had the cooked breakfast(absolutely superb), lights snacks as well as tea and cakes. It is always busy and the service is excellent. We strongly recommend you visit.
