I run past The Watermark Cafe in Scarborough's North Bay several times a week and always think it's in one of the best locations in the town. On a very rare morning off, we went for a hot drink at this location, and took a table on the verandah overlooking parked cars and a very rough sea. The service was... More

The cafe has a wonderful selection of cakes and the Italian coffee especially the cappuccino. Lovely to sit outside on a sunny day looking at the sea.

I go to this venue regularly on Sunday evenings. Most regulars are pleased that new "special" dishes have been added to the evening menu. The music is always superb, and it is a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The refurbished cafe is lovely. Breakfast is also good, with excellent coffee. Beware of a long wait for food at lunch time in season... More

It was a shame our B&B served such a big breakfast because the cakes and pastries looked tempting. A nice comfortable spot for a very tasty coffee though.

Haven't been inside for a while ( we usually sit outside)but the place looks amazing and we managed a table with a sea view. We came for breakfast and wasn't disappointed. We had bacon baps, full English and thick toast with jam. Very busy and staff very friendly

Lovely little teashop totally unpretentious and the best range of gluten free cake I have ever come across. Please spread the word amongst the poor cake deprived gluten free community.

Great food and service. Have been twice this week the cafe is lovely with a brilliant view of the sea. Pet friendly which is nice. Very clean with a great loo 😃 Loving the orange scented soap and hand cream. Good choice of gluten free for those that need it X

We were visiting Scarborough over the weekend and stopped by this cafe. We managed to get a table for two looking over the sea - very nice. However the service was much to be desired, no smile, no greeting and no knowledge of their product after I asked. The price was reasonable and the coffee was okay but we won't... More

You ever watched that Mary Portas show and thought ok I know what's wrong with this place - why can't the owner see it? Am I happy looking at dog owners allowing dogs to eat sausages off plates? Do they use the same dishwater for plates that dogs licked and potentially left hairs on? I'm not sure? I've visited this... More
