“Reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Love coming here when in Scarborough. For a very small place it's got a wide selection of food and drinks. The coffee is quite acceptable for a very fussy coffee drinker like myself. Felt a bit put off when someone with a dog was allowed to come in-how can that be in a small place? Never mind, I will be back as the view does it for me.

“Always a long wait to be served”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Have been to this place now many times and everytime the wait seems endless to get served as there is usually only 1 person serving and if there are 3 people in front of you in the Q and they order coffee be prepared for a long wait to get served as the milk has to be heated and frothed for every coffee made and it can take forever, why not have some milk hot and then it wouldn't take so long for each coffee served... train the staff to be observant and if the person doing the dishes sees that there is a Q and the other server is frothing coffee they should be told to serve the waiting customers especially if you want to only buy a cold drink.

“Great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Scarborough locals probably don't want the tourists to know about this little gem in case it gets too busy!
The location is superb. The food ingredients for the breakfast fare are all top of the range eg Trotters sausages and free range eggs. Proper coffee is areal treat ! The place is absolutely spick and span which I am afraid to say doesn't apply to some other places in North Bay. But aside from the Early Bird breakfast which is great value some other things are pricy. For instance two egg & bacon rolls and one sausage & egg roll was some 13 quid ! - though very good

“Watermark Full Marks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

as I ordered sandwiches, I was asked, " would you like salad with those? " I hate salad! what a relief not to have to ask for one without (not all restaurants remember this order). food was good, staff were lovely, atmosphere was great. their music nights look interesting! could you have a better view? oh! very important. good coffee!
