I had a series of meetings at this cafe. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The coffee was good and reasonably priced. The cakes looked lovely although I didn't try any. There are comfy sofas and tables and chairs. I was quite surprised at how busy it was which did make it difficult to hold the meeting at times... More

We stopped for a light lunch in what looked a nice coffee shop. We walked in and had to ask if there was a menu and were told 'the food's all in the fridge behind you'. So not fresh food (apart from a small selection of cake in the window) and not very friendly.

I come here only for coffee which is great. There are also cakes, biscuits and sandwiches to choose from and you can sit outside of the shop, the opposite of the Rochester Cathedral.

I have always been a fan of the small independently owned coffee shop's that normally get forgotten in favour of the big brand name's which is why I have been a regular customer at The Rochester Coffee shop. I was disappointed to see that they now only offer pre - packaged sandwiches and Panini's instead of the freshly made while... More

We decided to drop in for a drink and snack late morning. The coffee shop was busy but we were able to find a nice table towards the back. I had a very acceptable double expresso with a biscotti whereas my companions had tea and hot chocolate (the latter of which was pronounced excellent). They each had a slice of... More

My husband and I often visit this place as we live in Rochester. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is nice. The coffee is always good and the cakes and sandwiches are well presented and tasty.They offer a nice range of cakes and sandwiches for afternoon tea as well. Worth a visit.
