We were en route from Hythe to Deal, and wanted a spot of lunch. We found this little gem almost by accident, as we had stopped to look in at a fishing tackle shop nearby.
What a great little place ! Unpretentious both outside and inside, it nevertheless was spotlessly clean, well organised, with extremely pleasant staff who couldn't do enough to help, and an extensive breakfast and snack menu giving plenty of choice.
The food was beautifully cooked and of generous portions and the price was very reasonable.
Can't say more !

We stopped at this restaurant en-route to our ferry as my husband and a sailing friend had been there earlier in the week. In a guide book it's a recommended place for any sailor arriving at Dover Marina. It is clean and well furnished. The two ladies who run it are very friendly and courteous. The menu is quite large but it's the breakfast's that attract people and quite rightly so. Just what people need when travelling. We had the Little English which was more than enough but any brave person could try the Full English! Superb value!

We were out early on a Sunday morning before the cliffs and were having such a hard time finding somewhere open. Luckily we drove around and found this little gem! The staff was lovely and the breakfast exactly what I wanted!

When passing through dover we spotted this cafe and were immidiately pleased. The staff is very friendly and we enjoyed the great view on the ocean while sipping our delicious cafe latte. Plus we had some baguettes to go which were a nice (and much better) alternative to the food on the ferry!
Highly recommendable x
