Popped in for a quick cuppa and something sweet, on a fleeting visit with friends we were staying with in Birchington. Nice friendly service and very yummy cannolis.

Dropped in because of the location for coffees and a bite to eat. Very sullen and disinterested (older) staff members. Here's a clue folks - if you're charging £3.50 for a latte, smile at the customers - even Costa manage that! Coffee way too hot so milk burned.

Pleasant older staff, sullen youngsters, then while eating had a little old woman hovering waiting to clear us away. The only nice item is the coffee and ice cream. Sit outside, don't... More

Visited today and thought what a lovely place. Staff are friendly with a good range of pastries, cakes, panini and a few other bits too. Nicely decorated and kept clean too! Then I went to the one and toilet to find the uneven steps with broken tiles to tread on leading to a toilet for all with no seat. It... More

Piece of red velvet... Stale, gypsy tart... Okish.... Victoria sponge... Hmmm dubious especially the cream. £20 for four drinks (Inc 2 'fruit shoots'.. The cheap version ones) and 3 bits of crappy cake.... Funnily enough we won't be returning...
