“Excellent coffee”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Not just the best coffee in Canterbury, but among the best I've had anywhere (and I've been to a lot of places, and drunk a lot of coffee!). Follow your nose as you head from the main drag down St Margaret's Street as you can smell the roasting beans from some distance - and once there you won't be disappointed! So much better than the High Street chains, and reliably excellent. It's great to see the coffee also being served a local independent outlets - a measure of the quality of the product. while you're there, get them to grind some beans to take home.

“Great spot”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

What a lovely place to have a coffee, their little yard at the back of the shop is a real sun trap. So much better than the likes of Starbucks and Nero's.

“Über-cool”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Lovely friendly staff, really cool and quirky interior and I had the best chocolate frappé! Cannot wait to go back ;) . Also, the garden is nice and quiet, just the right place to go and relax with a great cup of coffee!

“Super coffee”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Dropped in for a quick coffee, as the place looked interesting. Very good coffee (had a flat white), lovely full rich flavour, but not at all bitter. Beans blended and roasted on site, and you can buy them whole and ground. It's quite a small, narrow place, and their roasting gear takes up quite a lot of the room, so there aren't many tables, but there are a couple more out the back in a small courtyard. Smells great, of course... Only a 4-star rating this time, as only had coffee, and while that was definitely 5-star, I didn't try any of the cakes - although they did look good. Service was very friendly and efficient.
