Nipped in the other day whilst the wife was shopping. The reason why it is my favourite is because you are always made very welcome. The coffee and cakes are excellent and well worth the money. The are a number of coffee shops in Hythe. However, this is not just my opinion but due to the footfall I am not... More

Food was very tasty I had a full English very well presented bacon not salty like other places, staff very friendly and welcoming, it had an old school atmosphere with WiFi. It also has a takeaway next door.

This afternoon I visited the welcoming Nutmeg Cafe for a pot of Tea. I normally call in here with my family for a light lunch. Love their Jacket Potatoes and homemade coleslaw with salad or their homemade soup. Today I peered into their mouth watering homemade cake selection I could not make my mind up, I wanted either the orange... More

My wife and I called into the Nutmeg Cafe for a coffee during our stroll in Hythe High Street. From the outside it appeared to be just the type of place where we wished to spend a lazy hour. We both ordered Americanos, milk for my coffee and cream for my wife's I didnt think the coffee was particularly great,... More

Popped in for lunch on spec as I had seen on Trip Advisor that they offered gluten free - obviously essential as a coeliac. Had an excellent value, VERY TASTY, swiftly served lunch. It was busy and at times a little noisy but only what you would expect from a popular high street cafe at lunchtime. Highly recommend.

Lots of gluten free choices, great freshly prepared food, quality light lunches. Its always busy so the service can sometimes be a little slow. However the atmosphere is really nice and the food is really lovely.

A quirky little place to eat and with such a tasty range of snacks. It's set right at the beginning of the High Street too - so nice and handy.

Popped in for a coffee but felt drawn to the excellent looking cakes. It was very busy so we sat in the outside court yard. The furniture outside has seen better days and could do with a good clean but the waiter did make sure he cleaned the table for us. As suspected the cake was great and the coffee... More

We had a very nice afternoon stop here. I was most impressed by the large teapots provided. So much nicer than the piddly little teapots one can get in so many tea shops! There was a very large selection of cakes on offer from your stnadard victoria sponge through carrot cakes to some very nice looking fuity decorated white chocolate... More
