Have eaten in here a few times and while the staff are lovely, the menu is limited. Food is fresh and nicely presented, but, compared to the choice in Birchington, it doesn't entice me back.

We visited the cafe at lunchtime on a Friday - it was busy and the waitress was working her socks off. The waiter was just chilling. I asked to swap the chips that came with the curry to a salad - no worries. The curry was hotter than i would normally eat and there could have been more rice but... More

A cafe that is deceptive in looking like a "greasy spoon" but having very good standard style lunches. Pleasant staff. Popular with locals.

Dropped in for a quick brunch. The service is outstanding, and the food lovely. We just wanted something quick, and while the coffee and the food came out fast, we never felt rushed. The BLT is awesome.

Honestly, this is 100 million percent the best place in Thanet to get a decent fry up. I choose to drive all the way over here rather than going somewhere close to my house in Margate even when I have a horrific hangover. The staff are so friendly, they do the best milkshakes and hot chocolates and it's really cheap.... More

Had a great meal here. Listen up! It's not cordon bleu! It's English cafe food! Try the chicken curry and chips ..,, I know it's wrong! And they're happy to swap things around, like beans for salad, so it's all good. :)

Myself and some family visited here this morning for a hangover breakfast and it certainly lived up to its fab reputation. Very clean, friendly and happy staff. Enjoyed what I had to eat and drink.

We thought it would be nice to have a good breakfast before our long trip home and we were not disappointed. Very helpful staff and food to suit all with a good selection of breakfasts available. This cafe is very popular with locals and visitors alike. Give it a look when u are there.
