Lovely little cafe and worth a detour from the high street to find it. Good selection of very tasty panini and sandwiches. Service is excellent and very friendly.

Great place if you're looking for a good English Breakfast, I've had the full english on two occasions now and it's always both delicious and accompanied by great conversation and hospitality from the staff!!

Great coffee and cheese and chorizo sourdough toasty. In fact it was amazing and highly recommended. It will definitely fill you up too. Staff are nice too. Give this a go if you are in Canterbury

My wife raved about this place, and I wasn’t disappointed by their substantial sandwiches. Well filled and excellent taste. I picked too small a latte, but my mistake. Good value for money by Canterbury’s standards.

Recommended by my son who discovered this little gem a little while ago. We just loved it! Honestly....the grilled cheese with pastrami is as good as what you get in NYC ( we've had a few! ) and the cheddar, ham and pickle was immense....More

We dropped for a very late breakfast with two starving and grumpy children. We've also got dairy intolerances, so we're not the best customers. The staff couldn't have been nicer and accommodated us cheerfully. Our smoothies, milkshakes and coffees were gorgeous and our breakfasts were...More

Description
Hi fellow Tripadvisor people, we thought we would give you a little info about us.

We are a casual very small Sandwich & Coffee Bar, serving you great coffee in the hidden back streets of Canterbury. We are not easy to find, but hope you will try.

Feel free to call ahead and ask if we have space as we are tiny but very welcoming, we have just launched our Grilled Cheese sandwiches and all are Iron Grilled to order just for you.

We hope to see you soon

Love

Willows
