This is a busy little cafe unless it is warm enough to eat outside. It is a good cosy environment and the staff are friendly and efficient. However, I found the menu confusing. We were there for lunch time and found the selections more for a main meal apart from the toastie which was delicious. The selection for the breakfast... More

This is a cosy little place, with a relatively short, but beautifully executed menu, and really good value. Nice friendly waitresses, good music playing, unhurried atmosphere on a Saturday.

It was a horrible wet day and we had our 3 dogs with us. We were invited in warmly and sat in the window, where my husband had some Turkish eggs and I had the best ever fried egg sandwich and lattes. We are looking forward to returning for a toastie!

My wife and I popped in here for breakfast after staying in Margate last Saturday night. We have tried getting in before for lunch but haven't succeeded as it's always so busy, for a reason, it's good! We had the place to ourselves this time and enjoyed really good coffees, friendly attentive service and good nosh. My wife ordered the... More

Saturday afternoon visit and called in for lunch. Place was full so said we'd have coffees outside while we waited from for a table. Despite chasing twice we never got a table and the coffees never came. Shocking service,left after 20 mins hungry and thirsty....shame as the menu looked good.

We visited with our children & a family friend one rainy Saturday after struggling to find anywhere to fit us! There's not much space in there but they have a quick turn around so we were quickly seated. All the staff are SO FRIENDLY. They could not do more to make you comfortable even though the place was really busy.... More

I came here with a friend on Sunday (15th), for a coffee. We ended up getting lunch because it all smelt so good. I wasn't sure what I wanted (as the menu was so appetising that I wanted all of it) so I asked the waitress to order me something so I can be surprised. She chose the falafel, halloumi... More
