Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great food and cakes. Service is fantastic and offers good value for money! The Moroccan beans are amazing and are complemented well with the home made lemonade; which the server made fresh that day.

We found the menu quite limited but the croissants saved the day! They were large and very tasty in contrast to the cappuccino cups which were very small. Staff were lovely. Canteen style dining room.

Great food, very friendly staff and more importantly Dogs are not allowed. The reason I say this is I'm allergic to animal fur! Well done.

Cheese toastie is my usual go to as we frequent Deal high street. We make it a point to visit your cafe before or after our shopping on the high street. However have been disappointed by the last couple of visits. The cheese was meagre...and there wasn’t cheese dripping out onto the crusts and top bread layer. It became an ordinary toasted cheese sandwich. The slaw quantity has reduced substantially which I feel is a shame. Tried to feedback to two members of staff about the cheese but afraid it went to deaf ears. Feedback was meant to be positive as would rather smaller of all then reduction in quality.More

Popped in for drink and had the most delicious brownie I have ever tasted. Hot chocolate was actually hot and very tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We've been 2-3 times and always good. The Kimchi cheese toastie is excellent, service always good too. Plenty to choose from in Deal and will try some others but this does it for us.

We have made a point of coming here ever since we discovered it during lockdown. In fact, it was the highlight of our trips to Deal and we always made sure we’d done the shops and got in here before they closed at 3pm. Unfortunately,...the last few times it seems they’ve changed the way they do things. Their cheese toastie with slaw used to be sublime but the slaw has gone from being a bit more of a medley of veg to just shredded cabbage so not really ‘slaw’ at all. On our last two visits, the toastie has had barely any cheese in it to the point where i have a job finding any at all. For the price of it, you’d expect cheese to be dripping out the sides, or at least present. Oat milk flat white could be hotter (I know you can’t heat milk alternatives up to the point of dairy milk but it could be better than luke warm). I’m so gutted; we’ll have to find somewhere else to have our coffee and toasties but I hope they see this and up their cheese game so we can come back! Pleeeease?!More

Awful, awful, awful. Came in here for lunch, we got 2 toasted sandwiches one with pickle one with no pickle but tomatoes instead and when it came our sandwiches were mixed so we have to changed them over . It was a greasy mess and...the cheese wasn’t even melted. The house slaw was disgusting. Pot of tea for 2 and every pour we had was filled with the loose tea so couldn’t enjoy a nice cup, the chocolate fudge cake did taste nice but was really gloopy and heavy. £30 for 2 rosaries, cake and tea for 2 which is okay if the food was actually nice we left most of our food. Won’t be coming back.More

Looking for a veggie friendly brunch/lunch and was not disappointed. Greeted warmly with smiles and enticing atmosphere. Just missed the breakfast but not a problem. I opted for the brunch sandwich using their homemade sourdough and a chai latte. Sandwich was delicious and filling, no...one ingredient overpowering the other. Chai latte was the best I've ever had, (and I've had a few), presented beautifully and such a taste sensation. Well done Pop Up, long may you remain! From a difficult vegetarian, I salute you!More

Always come here for scrumptious toastie and decent coffee when in Deal (in fact, it’s probably the main reason to come to Deal)! The coleslaw served on the side is unique with hints of fresh mint. Love it. Quality pergeot pepper grinders. Efficient service ....Even better that dogs will soon not be allowed in the cafe.More

On our weekly visit to Deal we try to get a table in this popular Cafe. The staff are great and very friendly. The cheese scones are fantastic. My only concern is the number of dogs that are brought into the cafe. I am a...dog lover but I'm allergic to animal fur. One dog in a room is ok but more than will make me ill. It would be great to have a dog free area but I doubt that is feasible.More
