This little café on Canterbury's high street has been here for ages. No wonder: the staff are welcoming, quick and efficient; the drinks are well-priced; and the pastries, sandwiches, soups and light meals are fresh-from-the-kitchen. It's cramped inside but that adds to the lively atmosphere. And it's a real change from all the 'chain cafes' that are swamping Canterbury. Try... More

Great continental breakfast, excellent French pastries and delicious lunches. The cafe is small though there is l lovely garden you can eat in in the Summer. Great for just a coffee, though I defy you not to have a pastry too.

Stopped for lunch in St Pierre on Saturday. The coffee is lovely, and the food is great. It's my favourite place to eat lunch in Canterbury. I cannot recommend this place enough. Lovely friendly staff. Look forward to returning.

This is one of the nicest cafes in Canterbury. The food is lovely and with a good choice - baguettes, paninis, quiches, soups - all home made and many using genuine French ingredients as the owner regularly goes 'home' to buy the best foods. The cafe is small and at peak times it can be difficult to get a seat... More

This is an incredibly charming little spot. The Cafe is very small but it has a nice air of intimacy. The food, though not extensive in options and reasonably simple, is delicious. It really is like finding a little slice of France in the heart of Kent and I was totally charmed by it.

This cafe is small but serves lovely home made cakes and snacks. I enjoyed the home made fruit scone served with butter, jam and clotted cream and a cup of English Breakfast tea. The croque monsiours and filled croissants looked to die for 😊
