on the board it says they may cater for gluten free and indeed have a couple of gluten free objects but dont seem to understand about the problems offering gluten free and not contaminating the products and are very disinterested if asked quite rude staff

Fab food, great coffee with a decent view ( weather permitting) outside seating also available. It's also great to know that this establishment specialises in using local suppliers. Will strongly recommend that you try it at least once if you have chance.

Went in to order a sandwich to takeaway. Asked the lady if they had any granary rolls to which she said yes they had some. Ordered a tuna sandwich and paid the £4.25. Got back to the car to find the sandwich was 2 slices of wholemeal bread with tuna on!!! Absolutely disgusting to charge this amount of money for... More

The only trouble it is so busy...... BUT that is of course a GOOD reason, for liking it if you come to think about it. AND one good thing is that they have a such a GOOD range of teas coffees a herb teas. AND usually they are fair trade & organic when possible. Inside & Outside seating.

Enjoyed a short break in Scarborough late September. Decided to go down to Watermark for the famous cooked breakfast. It was , as always, first class. Excellent ingredients and well cooked. It might not be the cheapest breakfast in Scarborough but it has to be one of the best! Staff are excellent and the view of the sea a bonus.... More

Lovely location on promenade North Bay. Sat in sunshine with a good cup of coffee waiting for two bowls of chips. Despite reminder food did not arrive and had to leave as ticket in car park expired.

What a little gem this place is - delicious quality food, served by friendly, efficient staff. I had a large bowl of tomato and basil soup served with brown bread - there were other options that day including beet root served with creme fraiche. My husband had a bacon sandwich with a bowl of excellent chips. Coffees were good also.... More

Great location on Scarborough North Bay. Top class coffee, workaday sandwiches and OK soup. Great unintentioned entertainment from hyperactive chap behind the counter. Rather pricey for ordinary fare.

Yes I agree with a previous review that its not much to look at from the outside, however, once inside the cafe is much more pleasing. The staff were polite, the coffee and cakes (some gluten free) were delicious. Every table was full inside and some outside.
