Called in with a friend for coffee, cake and a chat and to gaze out at the great view of the North Sea lashing over the Marine Drive railings. Lovely.

Decided to pop in here for Breakfast before travelling home. Breakfast is served until 12.00 and we chose the large breakfast, it certainly was large, 2 eggs, 4 rashers of thick tasty bacon, 2 sausages (not the best), mushrooms, beans, 2 slices of goats and a fired tomato, this came with a drink and at £9.95 is not cheap, however...

We called in the watermark for a coffee and ciabatta yesterday, after a walk on the marine drive. The food was lovely , and latte warming. The views are lovely, although the the cafe was busy we were served quickly. Definitely recommend this cafe.

Nice cafe right on the sea front, with nicely decorated interior. Great breakfasts and snacks. We called today for a coffee and hot chocolate with all the trimmings (£5 total) after a walk along marine drive. Great views of the castle and out to see. Nice that no damage was caused from the super high tide last week! (see pic.)

Fill you belly, warm your body ,fuel your soul! This cafe has it all ! Just don't tell anyone and sneer there for a visit - ps the seat next to the fire is mine - only kidding - dogs and well behaved humans are welcome - caters for all - recommend regular breakfast with latte - comes either organic...

Not cheap but nice position on the sea front. We had soup and a roll. Have to say it was really good. Nice log fire as well. On a previous visit we had breakfast which was also good.

Called in here one Saturday afternoon and was great. They have a menu just for homemade soups. The place is classy, homely, great food and very different. My only complaint is that it is always packed and you struggle to get a table.

The watermark definitely looks better and it slightly more spacious after its refurb. It was busy but we waited a few minutes and a table became free. Soon after we sat down a waitress quickly and efficiently cleared the table but did not wipe it. It's only a minor point but it's important to maintain the cleanliness of the tables.... More
