My favourite place to stop for a bacon sandwich or coffee and cake in the North bay of Scarborough. Gluten free cakes are also available. The cakes are delicious. This is a very cosy little cafe which also hosts live music events each month.

Been here on several occasions and the food is always good, but why oh why are the chips just nasty frozen ones? Such a shame when everything else is such nice quality.

Having visited Olivers Mount cafe in Scarborough for many years with our dog we have been turned away. They have had a typical refit and we are no longer welcome. A very different story at the Watermark where we had an excellent lunch, with dog very welcome. We have been here several times recently and it is excellent.

We ordered a regular breakfast my husband had coffee and I tea, a pot with plenty of extra hot... More

I went in January with my friend and we ordered 2 vegi burgers and a side of chips to share. When we were half way through the chips we came across a chicken nugget! You think given they were serving 2 vegi burgers they would make sure no meat was in the meal! I have been before and it was... More
