I probably lunch at Loaf every fortnight on average and I can't fault it! Fab food, sooooo reasonably priced, quick and lovely staff. It's my go to for a work lunch or weekend brunch. Kid friendly too - my son loves the baby boards.

As a local resident to sandgate I have visited here many times and never been disappointed with food or service. It's always busy whenever I come in here they do the most amazing cakes which my niece always has to try one. There is a wide range of food available from breakfasts to lunch/soups. Would definitely recommend. They allow dogs... More

My husband, father and I went here this afternoon and had coffee and a gorgeous bakewell slice. The ladies serving us were lovely and we noted that there is plenty of space between tables, which was ideal for us as Dad is in a wheelchair. We thought this was sensible as many establishments cram as many tables in as possible... More

As a local resident, I really enjoy going to Loaf. It's a great location, serves good coffee and cake, and there is usually enough space to get a seat (although due to its popularity it can be tough to get into at busy times I have found). Yes, you could argue that it is a touch on the expensive side... More

Really enjoyed our lunch & coffees. Pleasant staff & great fresh food. The gluten free chocolate & pear slice was delicious. Pop in for a coffee, you will be glad you did.

Have only called in for the occasional coffee or tea, Nice friendly atmosphere with no pressure to leave. The cakes look delicious. Several types of seating available including Sofas, armchairs and tables and chairs. Staff are friendly and helpful.

First visit and the last! We had a coffee and hot chocolate with two of the muffins that looked appealing on display at the counter. Just after an hour we both experienced stomach upsets and have been taking it in turns to visit our bathroom for the remainder of the afternoon. So great place to visit if you want to... More

I am very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit to Loaf and that you and your wife experienced stomach upsets that day. However, I believe it to be unlikely that your stomach upsets were caused by the coffee, hot chocolate and two muffins that you consumed from us. That day we served over 150 customers, many of...

The Loaf in Sandgate High Street was great for me and my pooch last week. Very welcoming. Lots of other dog-walkers too. All well-behaved. Staff friendly - let my little pooch share my seat. Comfy sort of place. Great coffee and cakes. But can get busy at lunchtime and half-term with mums + toddlers and us dog walkers. Highly recommended.

I love this little place, it's dog friendly! So great to walk the dog with friends or alone and then pop in for a coffee! The pups get treated to drink and biscuits! I also go here to study. It's just brilliant, free WiFi. Fairly priced drinks. And lovely, helpful staff, always with a smile on their faces.

Thank Hannah B
