We had a lovely meal but it would have been even better if it was hot! I would have sent it back but the cafe was so busy. However I would definitely return!

A beach breakfast with the choice of al fresco or "on the bus" eating. An excellent menu of original breakfast fare served with a smile. Food of a high standard catering for all tastes. I couldn't recommend it more. Enjoyed it so much that I'm...planning to return to Margate just to have another breakfast!More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast on my motorcycle. Parked across road in train station so only 2 min walk. Ordered sausage sandwich, it’s not your traditional breakfast food but it tastes great. Will definitely go again.

We visited the Bus Cafe for a Saturday morning breakfast. We hadn't booked but were fine to get a table at 9.30am, in November. The menu is basically slight variations on the main breakfast meal. We had The Hangover and The Veggie. Both were excellent....We loved the slightly unusual feel of eating in a bus, and being able to look out over the seafront at the same time. Staff were really friendly and service was good. The food was really tasty and different from the usual cooked breakfast. We found it very filling and enjoyed our visit very much. Would recommend.More

Hey there, we don't allow our four legged friends I'm afraid as it's such a small space upstairs. Sorry! X
