We come here every so often now when we can. We are big fans of the Full English breakfast, staff are friendly and attentive. Best of all, it makes you forget you're in Chatham for a while!

Become a bit of a regular at cafe nucleas. The food is lovely and it's a really unique place. Lots of attention to detail and all prices are really reasonable. Can't recommend it enough (the champagne in particular!)
