Scarboroughs little diamond.

Oh my what a gem of a place. Stayed in Scarborough over the august bank holiday and what a place this is. The gluten free cakes were amazing. Definitely going back in here next time round. If you go there and are gluten free then try the blueberry and white chocolate cake. I could have eaten the... read more

I'm a regular customer at The Watermark Cafe because it serves the best coffee on North Bay. It is popular, but you can usually get a table quite quickly - even at the busiest times. On warm days there are plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the sea views while having your refreshments. The food always seems very... More

It was a glorious sunny day with crashing waves and we were able to sit on the verandah outside. it felt like we were in Portugal.The cafe was very busy, but on ordering the staff apologised for the wait.We ordered sandwiches, with side salad and coffee.Both the sandwiches...

I've passed this place several times and never thought about going in - I've been missing out! The coffee is fantastic and I had a breakfast bap to accompany it - very tasty. The place has a lovely laid back beach vibe. Recommended

I called into this cafe yesterday for coffee and cake to rest my back and enjoy the views. I called in at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon in high season so inevitably the cafe was very busy. As a result of this I had to wait to be served but I think this is completely understandable. Pleased to see there... More

My partner and I go to scarborough a couple of times a year - he goes to the cricket and I go walking. I went into the cafe for the first time this year - after a terrible visit to Peaches n Cream. At peak times it gets really busy and you do have to queue to order, but I... More

Very nice cafe, lovely food, staff seemed not to listen clearly but theplace was busy, nice selection of sandwiches and drink, nce seating area just a shame staff were half a sleep. Would definately recomend a stop off at this cafe right on the sea front.

Lovely little cafe, have been a few times. The layout is poor and its not a nice experience when busy, it is in fact frustrating. Last time we went it wasnt as a enjoyable as previous visits. Decent food though and a good gluten free range.
