This is a lovely little cafe with gorgeous sea views. The staff are friendly and helpful, prices are reasonable and the selection of cakes is truly amazing. Between four of us (over two visits) we tried a lovely lemon and poppyseed cake, organic chocolate brownie, homemade eccles cake, chocolate cake, caramel shortbread and the star of the show - a...

After a recommendation from a couple of locals walking their dogs on the beach, we visited The Watermark for a cuppa and a bacon butty. We didn't have to wait long for a delicious butty which was washed down by lovely hot drinks. We'll definitely visit again as they were doggy friendly with plenty of fresh bowls of water available.

We visited with adult family members on our visit from New Zealand. I was delighted to see a sign saying ethically sourced produce used. I spoke with Jill the owner and was most impressed with this small restaurant. They had vegetarian choices as well as something to suit everyone there.

Unassuming from the outside, The Watermark Café is a real discovery. The views of the sea are fantastic, the food amazing and the staff superb. Our party included vegetarians and vegans, who had never seen such a great choice of food they could eat in a café. The delicious range of cakes all had the ingredients displayed, and there was...

A very popular place at North Bay in Scarborough. It can be very busy, but the staff do an amazing job clearing the tables and trying to make sure that there is room. They offer a loyalty card for drinks (buy so many get one free). More than happy to cook your bacon as you like it and there is... More

Decent food and drink here and the location tops it up to brilliant. I've yet to find somewhere nicer to start the day for breakfast. The earlier you go, the better it is, in my opinion!!
