I've been here a few times now and they have never disappointed. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the place itself is comfortable with the option of stools, chairs or sofas. I've had lunch, cakes, coffees, teas, and hot chocolates from here and they're always well made, hot and full of flavour. You can bring dogs in too, which I... More

This was our choice for our first coffee of the day prior to moving on from Margate. We were rewarded with a very good flat white, served with a smile. We would certainly return here on a future visit.

I have been wanting to try this place for sometime and was not disappointed when I called in with my husband mid Saturday afternoon for a late lunch. We both ordered the meatball sandwiches which were extremely tasty. I enjoyed my coffee and my husband also took away a slice of sponge cake to eat at home, which he aid... More

Chanced upon this great coffee house in the high street. The coffee wasn't over priced. The taste was special, obviously a high quality bean. Had a warm welcoming from the person that served us.

One blustery morning, after being blown about the beach with the children and the hound coffee was very much the order of the day! Perfect hot chocolates for the children, chai latte for myself and a latte for the other... just wonderful. The welcome was friendly yet professional, and the service was excellent. A glorious jewel in the grey x

We dropped in for coffee as they had a dogs welcome sign in the window. The coffee was nice and as it was busy and there was little space so I can only assume the food is also good but more importantly they were so welcoming of the dog. She was allowed into the cafe itself not just in a... More
