I recently visited Leonora's kitchen for high tea with friends and was impressed. The dining experience was all very well thought out and the food was honestly priced for such good quality home made food. Would definitely recommend!

My daughter and I stopped for lunch here as we were drawn by the cosy looking feel. I opted for the two course deal and my daughter (9 years) does not have normal child tastes so they were able to make her a toasted cheese and ham sandwich which was not on the menu.

The service was lovely and the food was yummy, we will visit again.

Popped in here yesterday for some lunch - this is a nice little restaurant with lots of homemade meals and cakes.

I had the Antipasti Platter which was exceptionally good.

This place is a little gem. Karen is a warm and friendly owner who is always on site and takes pride in her business, and it shows. It's the perfect place for a quiet and leisurely lunch or early evening meal. A limited menu means you know all the food is being cooked fresh to order and if you are sat in the kitchen you can see it being done! I had family visiting for valentines day and where most places were geared for couples, we were made welcome with a not-overly romantic setting. Food is always excellent.

We recently visited this cafe after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, however we were quite let-down. We were sat out the back in the actual kitchen and we did not like this experience. It also looked to us that the locally sourced and fresh food was from the supermarket - so not impressed. We ate the bear minimum, paid and quickly left.

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit to Leonora's Kitchen. Our Bistro is designed around the open kitchen & sitting in the open kitchen is a feature of our Bistro that many of our customers enjoy. Customers do have the options of sitting in the front of the building as an alternative. We are however looking at how we can improve the experience for our customers.

We do try to source our food locally when we can. We buy our meat & eggs from Monkshill Farm in Faversham, our breads from Oscars in Faversham, our cheeses from Ashmore Cheeses at the Canterbury Famers market together with some of our vegetables & other items. As our food is prepared freshly to order, at busy times we do need to pop to the local shops to top up on supplies.

Our promise is that all our food is freshly prepared on the premises. We make our own soup, hummus, cakes and scones daily. We hope you will give us another try.

Yours sincerely,
Karen Franczak
Owner
