A very pleasant and efficient young man serving. The coffee was very good and we had a delicious cake. We sat outside in the sun and it was very busy but the service was very quick. Quite expensive and they charge an extra 10p for...milk if you don't want black coffee, which I've never come across before. But I'd certainly be happy to go there again.More

It seemed as if Margate was still firmly boarded up and bolted shut for the winter, when we visited from London one sunny February day a few weeks ago. So it took a bit of a wander to find somewhere that a bit more tasty...than bog standard fish and chips by the empty beach, or greasy kebab from the the takeouts that dot Marine Parade. We tried the cafe at the Turner Contemporary but it didn’t appeal. Thankfully we came across the quirky little cafe called ‘The Greedy Cow Cafe’ on the little Market Place in the Old Town area, opposite the Margate Museum. The cafe is located in one of the Old Town’s quirky old buildings. The building is a bit olde-worlde wonky. The interior decor is decidedly vintage, quite shabby chic, but very clean and very appealing, especially to the arty-farty crowd. We were greeted warmly, and made our way to the small dining room upstairs, already filling with diners. Seating there is at trestle-style tables; we had a great spot by the window overlooking the little square and the museum. The only seating on the ground floor is outside in the little square. It’s the food that packs a punch here. The lunch menu is creative, innovative and really interesting. Everything speaks of flavour and freshness; everything oozes care and attention to detail. It’s far from ordinary fare here. There’s a good selection of dishes, including burgers, and a comprehensive menu for children. There’s also quite an exotic breakfast menu. No ‘Full English’ here; think ‘Banana and Pistachio Toastie’ or ‘Bacon and Guacamole Bun’. There’s plenty of options for vegans. Our meals were the Falafel and Beetroot Hummus, and the Pulled Pork Bun. Both were delicious. The spiced herb falafel was accompanied by rose water harissa, beetroot hummus, and a tomato onion and cucumber salad all on a bed of couscous; it was served with slivers of sourdough. The Pulled Pork dish was a toasted brioche bun filled with succulent roasted shoulder of pork, dressed with homemade BBQ sauce and a celery slaw. We enjoyed our meals very much. The servings were ample. AtWe’ve certainly put it on our radar, and will revisit as soon as opportunities allow.More

I am over the moon with the food from ‘The greedy cow’. I ordered the bbq pulled pork burger, it was soft and full of flavour! I would definitely go again and I would definitely recommend you to go! You get so much for the...price. I would also recommend the salted caramel malted milkshake it was to die for!! The service was amazing, the young blonde man served us and he was so welcoming and helpful. Thank you so much.More

I visited a friend who recently moved to Margate a couple months ago and she recommended this restaurant as their burgers are known to be really good. We were served by Lewis who was attentive and recommended an alcoholic beverage. We ordered the 'Gent's Burger',...'The Classic' burger with stilton cheese added into the burger and a normal bowl and side bowl of nachos. The burgers were extremely tasty and the nachos were sooo good. There was a healthy amount of guacamole which we were very impressed with. Two of my friends also ordered the 'Biddenden Mulled Cider' and it tasted really nice. They were happy with the recommendation. Would definitely eat here again and also try other dishes.More

We had lunch at the weekend and sat outside. I had the pulled pork burger and my friend had the cheese toastie. He raved about it and said it was the best food he’d had in Margate. I enjoyed my burger too. The staff were...excellent. I would recommend this place to future travellers.More

We just wanted some lunch and chose the Greedy Cow. On a warm sunny September I just had the look of a nice place to eat. Several tables outside and staff busy serving and clearing tables. Ordered nachos with jalapenos and a grilled cheese sandwich...with side of coleslaw. Plenty of sour cream on nachos with cheese throughout and super salsa. Nice grilled sandwich with pickles and great coleslaw. Faultless. Good value and we even left some. Just one thing, don't ask me about my food when my mouth is full :)More

The whole table agreed the burgers were some of the best we’ve ever had. We tried the Classic, Greedy Cow and Stilton burgers and they were all amazing. The coleslaw that came with them was fresh and delicious and the service was pretty quick. Overall...would definitely recommend, and will return next time we’re in MargateMore
