We were victims of Storm Doris during our walk in North Bay and needed to shelter from the rain so dashed in to Watermark. With lovely views over the sea and smart contemporary decoration. It was a pleasure to sit down. We ordered at the counter and the decaf cappuccino did not disappoint! We didn't eat but the food coming... More

We were really pleased to find this cafe as it felt out of the way of tourists and more like a community meet up cafe. It was really busy throughout the entire time we were there. We ordered 2 adult meals, 2 coffees, 2 cartons of kids juice and 2 kids meals. It came to just over £30. Food was... More

Busy spot, but I'm not surprised! This is a great place, in a super location. Good selection of lunches - paninis, wraps, soups and the like. Very good service (even though we ordered a huge amount for 6 people) and the food was fresh and tasty, and also good value. On a blustery, damp day (as so many are at... More

This is a gem shining on an otherwise 50 shades of grey Wednesday. Clean, and bright (both the decor and team). Coffees were excellently prepared and presented with fancy froth artwork finishing them off. I had a scone with the trimmings and Mrs had a jacket potato with Tuna. We were both very pleased .. my only suggestion would be... More

Lovely place, a cracking view, fast service, friendly staff, great breakfast and cappuccino, free parking this time of year. Not sure we go peak season, little bit pricy but it not a greasy spoon for bikers(that's just a bit further up the road)

Visited the watermark today, food nice but overpriced! At 3:25pm a man was wondering around the tables constantly and as soon as people were leaving the tables,he was placing a reserved sign on the tables even doing so whilst customers were still sat at the tables eating and drinking which was quite rude and irritating! On overhearing that an event... More

We visited this cafe as we were staying just a couple of nights in a hotel a short distance from this establishment. We chose to sit outside as it was a lovely bright warm day,so to sit watching the world go by and the view of the beach is great. I had my usual cup of tea which was served... More
