What a delightful little restaurant.
We escaped here in preference to nearby fish and chip places as the icy wind roared outside. Finding ourselves sharing a window table with a delightful couple from London.
The ambience here is great and the food is absolutely delicious at a very reasonable price. Sitting overlooking the concrete pier at Deal it was a real pleasure with the tasty food including a spicy toasted sausage sandwich and creamy pea soup. My wife finished with a great chocolate cake dessert.
Highly recommend this place but it was absolutely crowded, so get in early.

Although crowded on a sunny Saturday morning we managed to squeeze in. Had our order taken almost immediately. Drinks and food arrived promptly, in odd china cups, with odd saucers! But tasted fine. Very pleasant atmosphere. All in all a lovely morning!

This is a great breakfast/lunchtime venue. The food is tasty and well prepared as well as superb coffee.

The staff are very efficient in the tiny kitchen out the back and the waiting staff could smile a bit more but despite this a great place to enjoy a lazy weekend!

this is where Deal's cognescenti, intelligensia and literati go for Sunday breakfast and brunch. Sunday papers are provided because getting your order can take time. You have to be patient but it is worth it. Ingredients and cooking at top notch. A delightful way to start a Sunday.

The Black Douglas is a relaxed, warm and friendly coffee house/cafe. The furnishings include soft cushions and there are large miss-matched tables that are very close together but I think it adds to the sense of community. Just past the cozy dinning room is an open kitchen, where cakes are baking as you order. I can highly recommend the ginger cardamom cake and the coffee is superb. The young staff (are they the owners?) are so friendly and open. While it's a quiet spot with a sea view, it doesn't feel dead. This is a MUST if you're in Deal. Well done ladies!
