We have eaten here several times, but only ever had the full English breakfast or brunch. It has always been excellent, with very good quality fresh farm eggs, finest dry cured bacon and locally produced organic pork sausages - all very delicious and perfectly cooked. The problem is that this place is always so busy. It's often hard to get... More

An ideally located cafe for a meal or drink as you take in a great view. The interior is well decorated and its is a comfortable place to relax before you walk the Marine Drive. Friendly staff and a good menu makes it the ideal place to visit

Having checked out of the nearby Sands Apartments we called here for breakfast. It was very busy and unfortunately, like so many eateries, tables were not being cleaned very efficiently. Our table had been cleared of pots but had not been wiped down. That said I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast. I would happily eat here again.

Friendly cafe/coffee shop, closes at 6pm, but get there before 5 if you want hot food, we heard staff discussing what time the kitchen would close that day, it was decided 5.15pm, but someone came in at 5 and was turned away, ok for drinks and lovely looking cakes til 6pm.

My wife and I went down to Scarborough today for a walk along the beach. We came upon The Watermark Cafe and we're well pleased about this little jewel on the sea front. Oodles of parking. There was a fantastic choice of menu ranging from fresh sandwiches, homemade soups, fish and chips to beautifully made cakes all of a good... More

First visit to the Watermark Cafe. We had the Fish and chips with mushy peas. The meal was excellent and piping hot! If you want to sit in and have fish and chips this is the best place. The Cafe is beautifully fitted out and immaculately clean. Great view of the sea, what more can you ask! The owner was... More

Called in around 5pm on a wet Saturday afternoon (5th Nov 16) for a coffee, which was really nice, sat on the stools in the window area. Finished our drinks after around 30/45 mins and stood up to put our coats on and a staff member walked between us and started to straighten the stools and move our cups without... More

I just popped in this cafe with my dog over the lunch time period, and decided to have a bowl of soup. I chose celery and cumin which was absolutely wonderful. This was one of a selection of soups available. Well done that chef, I'm coming back for more it was great.

Went last Sunday for the music which is very very good and enjoyed an evening of music, lovely food and great company. My friend asked for a variation in the menu which didn't upset anyone, and a great time was had by all. The owner was very welcoming and all the staff had a made a huge (and hilarious) effort...
