We stopped in for a quick coffee and to get rid of a bit of travel sickness. After an amazing veggie breakfast we finally left with enough cake to feed the five thousand! It was a great place to stop and relax. Well worth the impromptu stop.

Recently visited for breakfast with our 8 month old daughter. We were provided with a high chair that worked perfectly with the lovely booths the cafe has. Breakfast was lovely and it was a bonus to know all the ingredients were locally sourced. Fast service and an amazing view. What more can you ask for!? We will be returning on... More

We visited The Watermark twice during our recent weekend trip to Scarborough. First we had breakfasts which were brilliant with delicious sausages and super thick bacon, the coffee was great too! On our second visit we had cake, I'll be returning for more cake next time, lovely, and a wide selection. This cafe does get really busy so your lucky... More

If you were to plonk this rusting building in the middle of a town or village, people wouldn't give it a second glance. Once inside, the furniture continues the shabby theme. All this is forgiven and forgotten by the generally warm and friendly welcome enhanced by the woodburner. The cakes are all bought in but of good quality, I wonder... More

Great location with good views, especially at high tide. This can be a problem as people seem to stay for quite a while and seating is limited. Have only had drinks and tea cakes so can't comment on the food menu but the drinks are good and priced similar to other establishments. Lovely log burning stove so cosy on cold... More

Freshly cooked food to order ensures food nice and hot when it arrives at the table, Sunday afternoon jazz afternoons brilliant. You need to pre-book a table and just buy a meal to enjoy the top class entertainment. Staff very friendly and work hard to go the extra mile. Nothing nicer on a sunny day to enjoy the stunning views... More

We only live 20 miles away so visit Scarborough often , seen the café for years but never ventured in until about 3 ,months ago and love the place after an early morning walk with the dog. The food is top drawer and as some people say you may have to wait a while for a sandwich when busy but... More
